Celtics waive Landry

The Celtics announced Friday afternoon that they have decided to waive Marcus Landry, who was the other part of the return from the Knicks in the Nate Robinson trade.
Landry played in just one game for the Celtics and didn’t score in three minutes. He was allocated to the Maine Red Claws in the NBA Development League where he averaged 11 points and four rebounds in 13 games. The Celtics recalled him over the weekend after the Red Claws failed to make the playoffs, but there was no role for him with the team.
An undrafted free agent out of Wisconsin, Landry made the Knicks roster as training camp invite. Landry understood that his spot with the Celtics was far from secure.
“I would love to be back in Boston,” he said in March after he had been assigned to the Red Claws. “It’s a great team. But you never know the outcome of the situation.”
The Celtics will go into the playoffs with 13 players on their roster.
