Sacramento signed the free-agent forward to a four-year $26 million contract in the offseason after the Warriors made the decision not to resign him.

A six-year NBA veteran, Landry was a key player for the Warriors last season, scoring 10.8 points per game coming off the bench in 81 games played.

This will be Landry's second stint with the Kings.
