Ken Berger of CBSSports.com reports that Carl Landry has come to terms with the Sacramento Kings on a four-year, $26 million-$27 million deal

Landry averaged 11 points and six rebounds last season as a key sixth man for the Golden State Warriors, at a 17-and-nine per-36 minutes pace. He logged a 17.5 PER that only dropped late in the season and had been one of the highest for a bench player for most of the season. The Warriors knew they had to lose Landry in free agency, which in part lead to their deal to make room for Andre Iguodala on Friday. 

Landry joins a crowded frontcourt in Sacramento, alongside DeMarcus Cousins, Jason Thompson, Patrick Patterson and Chuck Hayes. So you have to think at least one of those players will be moved to make room for Landry and his at-least $6.5 million per year deal. Landry is a productive offensive player who can defend a little but can also be exploited in certain sets and struggles on the rebounding end, though he ticked those numbers up last season. 

Not a bad pickup for the Kings, but they need to make room for some wing depth at this point or they're going to drown in bigs.
