NBA Comparison: N/A

Matthew Maurer - 4/3/2007

Strengths: Shows good mobility running the court Tough nosed player who fights hard every game Does an excellent job of obtaining space in the post where he gets his body wide for guards to make easy passes Post footwork, shooting touch and soft hands enable him to convert most opportunities in the paint Offensively Landry is crafty as he will use a number of fakes to get his defender off balance and draw fouls Back to the basket skills are quite advanced, displays a nice jump hook and turnaround jumper Shows mid range shooting ability from 14-16 feet that he makes with regularity Underrated post passer who is unselfish and sees the floor well Quality rebounder in his area Fundamentally sound as he understands how to read where the ball will go on missed shots when boxing out Upper body strength enables him to finish after contact occurs Basketball IQ is solid as Landry understands what his strengths are on the court and rarely goes outside of his comfort range

Weaknesses: Height leaves a little to be desired at 6-7 to 6-8, he may struggle to effectively play the post in the NBA To compound matters, Landry is just an average athlete not able to outjump his opponents nor explode off the floor offensively Conditioning and stamina are still points of concern as he can appear winded at times Not a great rebounder out of position When defending bigger players, Landry can be prone to picking up quick fouls due to being overly aggressive Defensively he lacks the explosiveness to be a shot blocker on any level While kind of a tweener, his lack of consistent three point shooting and sub par perimeter defense will inhibit him from playing the small forward position In the post, Landry will allow his man too much space and does a poor job of denying position Potentially he is near his limit
