Golden State Warriors forward Carl Landry has a $4 million player option for next season, and according to Marcus Thompson, Warriors writer for Bay Area News, he has until next Wednesday to decide whether he will exercise that option and return to Golden State next season, or become an unrestricted free agent.

Landry has admitted that it’s a very tough decision, and it’s understandable. The Warriors had a great season and Landry was a huge part of that success. He and Jarrett Jack shared the sixth man duties and provided a consistent spark off the bench for Golden State.
Still, Landry is 29 and probably wants job security sooner rather than later. The Warriors are in a tricky situation and have limited cap space, and it’s uncertain whether the team would want to jeopardize their situation even more.
Landry played in 81 regular season games this season and averaged 10.8 points and six rebounds per game.
