So it's kind of refreshing when a player comes out and expresses interest in playing for an actual NBA team. Slam Online reports that forward Carl Landry, who will be a free agent when the new CBA is agreed upon, has some interest in joining the Portland Trail Blazers whenever the next season rolls around.
"I think I can fit in with Portland," Landry told the site. "They're in need of a big post presence down low. I'm not taking anything away from [Greg] Oden and [Marcus] Camby. I just know what I can provide. The Blazers are a good team and I know I can help."
The 6-9 Wisconsin native averaged 11.9 points and 4.6 rebounds last season.
