Landry upset over C’s departure

LAS VEGAS — Marcus Landry’s time with the Celtics was brief, and not a very happy one either.

Landry appeared in just one game with the Celtics after arriving from the Knicks as part of the Nate Robinson trade. He was then assigned to the Maine Red Claws, the team’s D-League affiliate, where he averaged 11 points and four rebounds in 13 games.

But Landry was waived late in the season as the Celtics made room for Oliver Lafayette and Tony Gaffney, and his unexpected departure left a bad taste in his mouth.

“Anybody would have been disappointed,” Landry said after playing for the Knicks summer league team. “It was a situation that wasn’t explained to me. I can understand it’s a business, but the way it was handled was unprofessional. Personally, I had no reason given to me why it was done. Every time I step on the court I think about that. It’s something that goes through my mind a lot.”

Landry also played for the Pacers in the Orlando summer league and he said he has received a handful of training camp invitations. He said he and his agent will sift through the offers before making a decision that makes sense for him as he tries to get back in the NBA.
