An integral part of the 2012-13 Warriors won't be returning next season.
Forward Carl Landry will instead be returning to the Sacramento Kings, according to multiple reports.

Landry's deal with the Kings is for approximately $26-$27 million over four years, league source says.— Ken Berger (@KBergCBS) July 6, 2013
The six-year NBA veteran spent just one season with the Warriors, averaging 10.8 points and six rebounds per game in 81 games. Landry spent parts of two seasons with the Kings. In February of 2010, the Kings acquired Landry from Houston. A year later, the Kings dealt Landry to New Orleans.
With the acquisition of Andre Iguodala and departures of Andris Biedrins, Richard Jefferson and Brandon Rush on Friday, the Warriors are right at the $58 million salary cap, leaving them little room to re-sign Landry.
Landry tweeted the following on Saturday afternoon:
