Look at that wingspan!
Interesting article from Jeff Washburn regarding Celtics' rookies JaJuan Johnson and  E'Twaun Moore and  Carl Landry's thoughts:
"Me, along with everybody in West Lafayette and Lafayette, knows that those guys will contribute. It's crazy that they were drafted by the same team. That just doesn't happen." While Landry has said that he enjoys playing in New Orleans and would be interested in playing for the Indiana Pacers or his hometown Milwaukee Bucks, he is intrigued by the Celtics."What would be even more weird is if the Boston Celtics sign me," Landry said. "Anything is possible. With free agency, you really just never know. We could be Purdue East."
Guys usually talk-up players from their alma mater, but I'm a big fan of Landry.  He plays bigger than his size indicates and isn't afraid to mix-it-up in the paint with actual 7 footers.  He also doesn't get his shot blocked nearly as much as Glen Davis.  I look at Landry as an upgrade over Davis, but not the final answer to the need for a center.  What do you think?

    that would be a great addition. Just like Glen Davis did, Carl can learn the art of DEFENSE

    Celtics needs to get on it asap

    it would be a good sign no doubt bc the kid can rebound but we don't really need small big men who play big we need legit 7 foot big men that can play D kinda like some1 we used to have (Perkins cough cough) Thanks a lot Danny u traded away Perk so now we have a hole @ C arguably the most important position involved with winning a championship, nvm o yah you got us Jeff Green a overrated, sporadic, gutless (from what I've seen) tweener now we r forced to most likely overpay for him so you can justify your "ingenious" trade of kendrick perkins

  3. Anonymous number 1: Attending Purdue Landry's two years there, I can tell you he can play defense already. You don't play at Purdue unless you can play it. And he's already shown in the NBA that he can as well, usually against bigger players.

    if jeff green turns into a stud I'll gladly eat my words but let's b real he played almost 40 min a game which is a ton from his rookie year on in OKC and he only averaged 16 pts 7 rebounds you would think a players

    I prefer Landry to Baby, but the thing is we don't need to use the MLE to sign Baby, but we do need to use it for Landry. So we could sign Baby and then a center with the MLE or just sign Landry and no one else. Then the decision becomes harder huh?

    Wasn't Landry NOT playing for the MLE? I could've sworn he was around $3 million a year. Who knows if they'll even be an "MLE" after this. Or whether guys like him will be realistic to get it.

    Anyways I agree with First Anonymous.

    It was not long ago that players didn't want to come to Boston. How things have changed (in a good way)!

    Let's get Landry!

    Agreed Bohemian- everyone owes that to Ray Allen. He was the first one to agree and then everyone started falling into place...
