NBA Free Agency: Cleveland Cavaliers interested in Carl Landry

USA TODAY Sports

The Cavs may have an interest in Carl Landry as the free agency frenzy continues.

David is going to be extremely happy with this news. The Cavaliers have apparently expressed interest in bringing Carl Landry to Cleveland, according to Jeff Goodman of ESPN.

Carl Landry will meet with the Los Angeles Clippers on Tuesday, multiple sources confirmed to ESPN.com.

Golden State is interested in bringing the 6-foot-8 forward back. Others teams that have expressed interest include Indiana, Denver, San Antonio, Atlanta and Cleveland, a source told ESPN.com.

Landry is another in a long line of big men that the Cavaliers appear to be exploring, be it through trade or through free agency. He's another guy that especially adept in the pick-and-pop game. Playing with Stephen Curry and Jarrett Jack on the Warriors this season, Landry shot 44 percent from 10-23 feet on about 4.5 attempts per-36 minutes, meaning he'd give the Cavaliers a dimension they have lacked over the past couple of years.

However, I sincerely doubt his desire to come to Cleveland. He's the kind of guy that seems tailor-made to play on a contender as a third big man, and those guys are in high demand. It would require a severe overpayment that Chris Grant and company haven't shown a desire to provide to a free agent as of yet. Doing your due diligence is always a good thing, but I expect that Landry will be playing in the West next season.
