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."

LANDRY: “The Warriors are home whether I opt in or out. Hopefully, I can spend the rest of my career here because this is a very special place. Everything here is what you want: the city, the fans, the front office, the coach, the teammates. You can’t ask for anything more.” Contra Costa Times

Jackson has been coy about how he'll replace Lee in the starting lineup and overall, but I've got to believe the Warriors are leaning towards going small (with Harrison Barnes moving to the 4 and Jarrett Jack into the starting lineup) for most of the game, whether that's to start the game or not. It's just the best way to get his better, faster players on the floor at the same time, and then Jackson can pinpoint when he wants to get Carl Landry in for some post scoring... and I'd think Jackson will have a quick trigger on Landry and Bogut playing together, since they don't seem like a real fit and they didn't play much in tandem this season.

Carl Landry posted up Mike Dunleavy twice Saturday night and couldn't back him down. Dunleavy told me his secret afterward: "I played with Cliff Robinson, one of the best post defenders ever, my first couple of years in the league. Skinny as I was, I was getting posted up all the time by pretty much everyone. One day after practice he showed me a few techniques and ever since, it's been a little better." He added, somewhat jokingly, "You get over 30 years you get some old-man strength, too." Both Landry and Dunleavy are listed as 6'9", but Landry is 248 pounds while Dunleavy is 220. Watching Dunleavy work, Robinson taught him about leverage -- keeping his upper body straight up, but utilizing his legs at an angle, like tipping a chair against a door. Sulia

Golden State Warriors forward Carl Landry presented $10,000 worth of donations in boxing, fitness and recreation equipment Thursday to the East Oakland Boxing Association, which was burglarized on several occasions last year. Landry helped distribute equipment provided by Good Sports, including exercise benches, boxing gloves, protective head and groin gear and chin-up bars. The East Oakland Boxing Association is a nonprofit that has served Oakland residents ages 5 to 20 since 1987. It provides free after-school and summer programs that include physical activities like boxing along with mentoring and tutoring for academics, art, gardening and leadership development.
