According to Landry, there are about six teams he believes will pursue his services and the Trail Blazers are expected to be one of them. “Portland is a team that has been interested for a while and the feeling is mutual,” Landry told CSNNW.com. “Their fans are unbelievable, like the Warrior fans. They sellout every game. They have a good franchise player in L.A. [LaMarcus Aldridge], Damian [Lillard], Wes [Matthews], Nic [Batum] and Meyers Leonard is a good player. Their GM, Neil Olshey, is making all the right moves. They are headed in the right direction.” CSNNW.com

“I'm open,” he said. “I'm open to listening to Portland and other teams. That's why I made the decision to opt out, to make sure I made the best decision for me and my family. At this stage in my career, I'm just looking for security. I think I've outplayed my previous contract and now I'm just looking for fair market value. I want a deal that's going to have me with a team for a while. Something over two to three years. If it's in Portland, that would be great.” CSNNW.com

Warriors forward Carl Landry is leaning toward opting out of the final year of his contract with Golden State and pursuing free agency, according to his agent. "He's worth a lot more than the contract he has and the direction (we're moving) toward is him opting out," said his agent, Mark Bartelstein. "Things can change, but that's where it's leaning."

Landry signed a two-year, $8 million contract last summer with the second year as a player option. He has until Wednesday, the day before the NBA Draft, to decide whether to opt in to the remaining $4 million or choose to become a free agent. He is not expected to inform the Warriors until close to the deadline. "(The Warriors) knew it was essentially a one-year deal when he signed," Bartelstein said. "They got him at below market value."
