    76ers' Carl Landry still recovering from wrist surgery

    76ers forward Carl Landry (wrist) said he's taking things 'day by day' as training camp approaches, Tom Moore of Calkins Media reports. Landry underwent surgery on the wrist back in June, and he was initially given a 4-to-5 month recovery timetable. That puts him on pace to return right around the start of the regular season, and at this point it's unclear whether he'll be ready for the opener. Landry had his cast removed roughly three weeks ago, so now it's a matter of building strength and dexterity in the wrist. The veteran should be in position to see significant minutes for Philadelphia this season, though considering the team's unique situation and roster, it's difficult to project what, exactly, his role will be while surrounded by mostly inexperienced players.

The move opens up nearly $15 million in cap space for the Kings as they try to bring in marquee free agents. Landry averaged 7.2 points and 3.8 rebounds last season, Thompson tallied 6.1 points and 6.5 rebounds and Stauskas registered 4.4 points, but the former first-round pick could become a valuable asset in the 76ers fast-paced scheme.
