The Sacramento Kings cleared about $16 million in salary-cap space on Wednesday night, unloading two significant contracts onto the Philadelphia 76ers, league sources told Yahoo Sports. The Kings traded forwards Carl Landry and Jason Thompson and 2014 No. 8 overall draft pick Nik Stauskas to the 76ers for the rights to overseas players and a future second-round draft pick, sources said. The Kings will send the Sixers a protected future first-round draft pick as part of the deal, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

The veteran, who is now in his eighth NBA season, won’t go as far as to say he is back to 100 percent healthy, but said the soreness is gone for the most part and that he is feeling better every day. And while he is beginning to contribute on a more consistent basis for the Kings, he is striving for more. “I feel good, but I want more out of myself. Definitely as far as like I want to become faster, I feel like I might be a step slow … more athletic, just everything that I think mentally that I can do, sometimes the body just isn’t there yet, but I am working at it every day, and things are definitely getting better,” Landry told Sactown Royalty.
The Sacramento Kings announced this afternoon that veteran forward Carl Landry underwent successful surgery on his right knee. He is expected to make a full recovery for the 2014-15 season. The 30-year old Landry made his season debut on Jan. 19 after missing the Kings’ first 38 games with a torn hip flexor. On March 8, the Kings were forced to shut Landry down for the remainder of the season when he sustained a medial meniscus tear in his right knee.

Kings forward Carl Landry missed his third consecutive game Monday night when the Kings faced the New Orleans Pelicans at Sleep Train Arena. Landry has been sidelined because of a sore right knee since finishing the morning shootaround Friday in Los Angeles. He had an MRI on Monday, and the team was still awaiting the results before tipoff. “Once we get those results, obviously we’ll be able to have a much better idea of what the plan is with him moving forward,” coach Michael Malone said. “I’m hoping that he’s going to be able to play some of these games to finish out the season.”
Carl Landry isn’t close to returning to the court for the Kings, but he is able to travel with the Kings as he recovers from surgery for a torn left hip flexor. Landry underwent surgery Oct. 15 for the injury suffered during training camp in Santa Barbara. He was expected to miss three to four months after the surgery. Landry is going through his rehab on the road, but is still unable to do anything on the court. “Just being patient is the toughest part for me,” Landry said. “I’ve got to sit back and watch my teammates go to war and I can’t be involved physically. The main thing is to be patient and remember that it’s a journey, it’s a marathon, and things will be better in due time.”
Michael Malone echoed the sentiment shared by his sixth-year veteran. The Kings head coach likes the versatility he has in his frontcourt, especially with players like Mbah a Moute and Outlaw, who are capable of sliding over from small forward to the power forward position. “Obviously when one man goes down, that’s another opportunity for somebody else,” Malone said. ”So as cold-blooded as it sounds, this train must keep on moving on. We wish Carl the best and we can’t wait to have him back with us.”
The Sacramento Kings today signed free agent forward Carl Landry to a multi-year contract, according to Kings General Manager Pete D’Alessandro. Per team policy, terms of the contract were not disclosed. “Adding Carl provides depth and veteran leadership in our frontcourt,” said D’Alessandro. “His professionalism and workmanlike approach to the game will also serve as a great example to our younger players. We’re excited to have him join the team.”
