The Warriors are reportedly targeting Carl Landry as a free agent addition.

The Warriors are still finishing out their team, which looks, at least on the surface, to be quite a bi better than the lottery tank-out they were at the end of the season. Mostly because they won't be sitting their best players. But still. And they're looking for one more major impovement, this time at reserve power forward.
Landry would give the Warriors a decent replacement for David Lee when he goes to the bench. They'll lose rebounding, but should have the kind of roster to sustain well enough otherwise. Landry's a hard-working defender and can score at the rim. He's not afraid to do the dirty work, even if he loses a few teeth.
Big men are at a premium and Landry does the job well enough. He averaged 18 points and 8 rebounds per 36 minutes last season with a very-respectable 18.2 PER. If the Warriors land him, that's going to make them two-deep at every position.
