Kings, Carl Landry agree to four-year deal

Carl Landry knows the “new” Kings better than most players.

Landry played for coach Michael Malone while he was an assistant coach in his previous two jobs at New Orleans and Golden State.

Landry also is familiar with principal owner Vivek Ranadive, a former Warriors minority owner. And point guard Greivis Vasquez was a teammate of Landry’s in New Orleans.

So when Sacramento reached out to the 29-year-old free-agent forward, Landry jumped at the chance to return, agreeing to a four-year, $26 million contract Saturday.

The six-year veteran officially can sign Wednesday, when the league moratorium on transactions is lifted.
