A few weeks ago, Golden State Warriors forward Carl Landry said deciding whether or not to opt out of his contract with the Golden State Warriors would be the toughest decision he’s ever made, at least from a professional stand point.
Tough or not, it appears Landry has made his choice.
According to CSN Bay Area, the former Purdue talent is expected to opt out of his contract with the Warriors in the next few days:
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 dollar contract with the Warriors last offseason but with so many teams gearing up for runs at Chris Paul and Dwight Howard, it’s expected second and third tier free agents will be able to cash in and Landry is hoping to secure a long term deal worth more than a $4 million dollar annual salary.
