Carl Landry appeared in a career-high 81 games for the Warriors last season, and was a key reserve who averaged 10.8 points and six rebounds on a team that made it to the second round of the playoffs.

The Kings haven’t sniffed the postseason in eight years, but signed Landry to a four-year deal worth $26 million last summer in hopes of beginning to build a team that will one day change that.

This year has been the usual dumpster fire in Sacramento, however, and Landry has been unable to contribute much at all due to suffering two serious injuries, the latest of which will end his season.

From the official release:

Sacramento Kings forward Carl Landry will miss the remainder of the season after a recent MRI taken at Kaiser Permanente revealed a medial meniscus tear in his right knee. Surgery will be scheduled in the near future.

Landry also suffered a hip flexor tear in training camp that forced him to miss more than three months. He returned to action on Jan. 19, but was never able to make it back to the level he played at last year, averaging just 4.2 points and 3.2 rebounds while playing 12.9 minutes per contest in 18 appearances.

    Carl is a really good guy but I absolutely hated this signing when it took place and now year one was a complete waste of money.

    I can’t believe how bad the kings still are

    Yeh bad signing. The Kings should look to draft IU’s Noah Vonleh come June and see if maybe they can use Landry as a trade chip for a pass first point guard to slot in next to McLemore, Gay and Cousins

    Brett P., you are as usual really hostile to Sacramento — your language is not that of a journalist. Would you please explain where that hostility comes from? I mean my question seriously, no intention to troll. It’s an easily observed tendency of yours.

    It was an honest and legit question. I guess you are too much if a puss to answer it. I’m at profnjm@gmail if you are interested In explaining why you bash Sacramento indiscriminately.

    Ooh, slick! I’m totally embarrassed.
