Marcus Landry Trying Out for the Kings

New, comments

Add Marcus Landry to the Sacramento Kings' massive audition at the wing position, as FanHouse's Scott Schroeder reports the small forward is in town and will break camp with the team Monday.

The second-year free agent out of Wisconsin, who happens to be the younger brother of Kings forward Carl Landry, played for Sacramento's 2009 Vegas Summer League squad, and played well. He played with the Knicks and Celtics last season, spending a spell with the Maine Red Claws of the D-League as well.

He's billed as a physical defender and a spot-up shooter. Those happen to be qualities the Kings are looking for with the wing vacancy. Landry will compete with Donald Sloan, Luther Head, J.R. Giddens and Joe Crawford for what would assume to be the final roster spot available. (The Kings could keep two of the players, or even three if Darnell Jackson is waived. I doubt the Kings will carry more than 14 players, though, and Jackson is No. 13.)
