Profile:

Power Forward: 6’9, 248 lbs; 9th year, Purdue | Career: 10.9 points/game, 5 rebounds/game, 53% FG

Carl Landry is a heady vet who is turning back the clock with the lowly 76ers; an undersized four, Landry’s toughness, energy & adaptability (added a 3-point shot in 2016) have resulted in long career – a lesson that shouldn’t be lost on youngsters like Richaun Holmes & Jerami Grant; similar to Ed Davis, Landry will flex after every single and-1 opportunity (popularized in Golden State!) – finishes well despite contact and bowls through bigger defenders on a regular basis; his veteran savvy & reliable J should be used for good…aka a contender should swoop up Landry ASAP
