Carl Landry's Future With the Golden State Warriors Is "Uncertain"

The Golden State Warriors face a couple major decisions this summer regarding two of their primary bench contributors: Carl Landry and Jarrett Jack.

Jack doesn’t seem to be in a hurry to make up his mind. Of course, he won’t be able to sign a new deal until July 1 when free agency opens. But players often like to stir up controversy by slipping bits of hints to the media, and Jack’s mindset hasn’t changed: He wants to remain with the Warriors.

Landry’s situation is a tad more different because he owns a player option worth $4 million, and General manager Bob Meyers hasn’t asked Landry if he’ll pick up his option, reports Kyle Bonagura.

However, Golden State may approach him sooner rather than later so they can start crafting their offseason plan. In other news, Bonagura’s tweet does reveal that Meyers and company are confident that Brandon Rush will pick up his $4 million player option, which isn’t much of a surprise given that Rush is coming off a brutal injury in which he tore his MCL and ACL in his left knee. His value will need to be rebuilt before he seeks anything bigger.

Winning does bring important decisions, and Landry’s situation is no bigger to the Warriors. And while the Warriors did have a tight-knit group, this is a business, after all.
