Marcus Landry RumorsAll NBA Players
Marcus Landry has been a Milwaukee Bucks fan for virtually his entire life. Now, he’s hoping to become a Bucks player. Landry, a Milwaukee native who went on to star at Milwaukee Vincent High School and then the University of Wisconsin, took a significant step toward making that a reality when he signed a non-guaranteed contract with the Bucks Monday. “My dad (Mark) would take me and my brother Carl to Bucks games when we were little,’’ said Landry, referring to his older brother who plays for the Philadelphia 76ers. “I think I went to my first Bucks game when I was maybe 9. Then, me and my brother went to more and more games. “We ended up going to a ton of Bucks games and after them we’d wait around to get autographs from guys like Ray Allen, Big Dog (Glenn Robinson), Tim Thomas, Sam Cassell. We had some memorable moments at Bucks games.’’
According to a source, Marcus Landry has returned to play for the Reno Bighorns in the NBA Development League. Landry was in training camp with the Los Angeles Lakers this season, and was one of their final cuts. The skilled three point shooter averaged 4.0 points and 1.2 rebounds in 6 preseason games for L.A.
