Landry is a 6-foot 7-inch forward out of Wisconsin who went undrafted in 2009.
The brother of Golden State Warriors forward Carl Landry, Marcus Landry played 17 games for the Knicks in 2009-10 under Coach Mike D’Antoni. In February of 2010, Landry was traded to the Boston Celtics, with whom he made a single three-minute appearance.
Landry has gone through training camps with the Sacramento Kings and Phoenix Suns. He was an NBA Development League All-Star this past season with the Reno Bighorns -- where he won the three-point contest.
Through 35 games with the Bighorns, Landry averaged 16.5 points a game while shooting 42.8% from three-point range.
One of the Lakers’ off-season goals is to add shooting and athleticism.
The Lakers have yet to announce their summer league roster but a team spokesman said that, while nothing is official, the Lakers expect Landry to be a part of their squad in Las Vegas for summer league play July 12-22.
