Following a strong campaign with the Warriors last season, Carl Landry has opted out of the final year of his contract, the team has confirmed to CSNBayArea.com. 

The 29-year-old power forward had a player option on the last year of his deal with the Warriors that would pay him $4 million. He'll now enter free agency.
