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. Cowbell Kingdom
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.” Sacramento Bee
Nevertheless, I'm told the Kings are looking to buy good players, not sell them. But the Kings don't have a lot of assets that people covet at the moment. Marcus Thornton, Jason Thompson, Jimmer Fredette and Carl Landry would all be available for teams making a run at the playoffs, but no one is beating down the doors for those guys. ESPN.com
