NBA Free Agency 2013: Carl Landry Meeting With Los Angeles Clippers

This will certainly make a few stomachs flip in the Bay, but Carl Landry who previously played with the Golden State Warriors is scheduled to meet with the Los Angeles Clippers this evening.

Landry is a favorite of Chris Paul‘s during their short tenure together in New Orleans and Paul reportedly would love to have Landry as a teammate again.

Per Wojo:

Carl Landry meets w/ Doc Rivers and Clippers tonight, sources tell Y! Free agent forward was a favorite of Chris Paul’s w/ New Orleans.

As we’ve already seen this Summer, the Clippers will do what they can to appease their start point guard which could end up with them bringing in the former Boilermaker.

Of course, with limited available funds, a Landry acquisition would most likely need to come from a sign and trade.

All in all, it’s a pretty difficult proposition as the Warriors are concerned about their own finances and certainly wont assist a division foe in getting better. They’d most likely prefer to just sign Landry on their own rather than acquire another player who would eat into their already elevated financial books.
