Landry's low-post game wasn't the only reason Golden State wanted him. Sure, the jumper-loving Warriors needed his bankable skill. But Landry also possesses an intangible general manager Bob Myers wanted. The Warriors needed a guy who got his front teeth knocked out with an elbow (in December at Dallas) and missed one game, a guy who got shot in the calf (in an incident after a car accident in Houston in March 2009) and was back in the lineup 21 days later. So Myers flew Landry to Las Vegas during the summer league to express his interest in him. Landry ended up signing a two-year, $8 million deal in August (with a player option for the next season). "You can say you're tough, but not a lot of people have stories like that to back it up," Myers said. "That guy's tough. He's so tough, he doesn't have to say it. Everybody just knows it."

Veteran forward Carl Landry remembers the year he made the playoffs with Houston. How every game was intense. How the city rallied around the team. He said he wants that back. That's why he said he signed with the Warriors. "At this point in my career, I want to play for a team that's not playing for a draft pick," he said. " ... This team definitely has the talent to be a playoff team -- and not just an eighth seed or a seventh seed." Oakland Tribune

Warriors GM Bob Myers wouldn't promise a playoff berth in 2012-13, but he thinks they've got a better chance than last year. "I’m not sure we could expect much from the talent that we supplied the coaching staff with last year," Myers said. "But I called Mark (Jackson) and told him after the Carl Landry signing that he has something to work with this year. I don’t think he’s running from that challenge. I think he’s saying, ‘Yeah, we do.’" Sulia

Free-agent forward Anthony Tolliver said Charlotte has emerged as a new suitor for him. “Charlotte reached out for the first time the other day,’’ Tolliver said Wednesday. “They’re really interested… They lost out on Carl Landry (who went to Golden State).’’ Tolliver has interest in the Bobcats. “They could use another veteran to put in there instead of just always throwing in rookies and not knowing what you’re going to get out of them,’’ Tolliver said.

There was mutual interest between the Golden State Warriors and power forward Carl Landry since the early stages of free agency. Landry, a veteran with five years of experience, entered the week as the top free agent on the market. The Charlotte Bobcats were making a big push to sign him, but in the end the Warriors won his services with a two-year $8 million contract offer. “Golden State was always a place that I had considerations of going to,” Landry said in an exclusive interview with HOOPSWORLD. “I didn’t know how long it was going to take to get the deal done and it finally got done. It’s a good fit. They have absolutely great fans. They have a good coach in Mark Jackson and general manager in Bob Meyers. There are a lot of good things going on there in Oakland.” HoopsWorld

“(Making the playoffs) is all they talked about,” Landry said. “When I talked over the phone and in person with them it was all about making the playoffs. I’m really excited about playing for a team where the fans are going to be behind you 110 percent and making that push for a playoff run. I’m excited and looking forward to the season. “The Warriors haven’t been to the playoffs in 18 or 19 years but maybe one time so it’s been awhile since they went to the playoffs. That’s going to be the goal, to always get into the playoffs. It doesn’t matter what team I’m on. The goal is to get into the playoffs and see how far you can go when you can get there.” HoopsWorld
