Rockets Match Offer Sheet, Keep Carl Landry
After months of speculation, the Carl Landry saga has finally reached its conclusion. The verdict: The explosive second-year forward will indeed be donning Rockets’ red once again.
Less than twenty four hours after the Charlotte Bobcats signed Landry to a three year offer sheet – with the third year being a team option – Rockets GM Daryl Morey announced that Houston will match the deal.
"We’re really excited to have him back," Morey says. "We wanted to sign him long-term out of the draft last year; because we didn’t have mid-level we weren’t able to get that done. So now we’re excited to get that done and we’re going to have a great set of players in for training camp.
