Marcus Landry gets a training camp invite from the Lakers

Marcus Landry played well for the Lakers during Summer League in Las Vegas, averaging 15.2 points and 4.2 rebounds in 26.8 minutes per game in five appearances.

That consistent level of production has earned Landry a shot to make the Lakers roster.


Ramona Shelburne of ESPN Los Angeles reports that Landry’s deal has a small guarantee, which means he’s likely only gotten a foot in the door with a training camp invite for now.

But Landry did appear in 17 games for the Knicks during the 2009-10 season when Mike D’Antoni was New York’s head coach, so perhaps that connection will help him if the Lakers end up needing someone to fill the final spot on their roster.

Landry is the brother of Carl Landry, who played well enough off the bench for the Warriors last season that the Kings inked him to a four-year deal this summer.
