Hornets Await Word from Landry, Smith
Free agent forwards Carl Landry and Jason Smith are both currently mulling offers to re-sign with the New Orleans Hornets, their agent Mark Bartelstein said Wednesday night, and likely will decide whether to accept the deals sometime Thursday now that the Chris Paul trade to the Clippers has been consummated.
The Hornets’ contract offers aren’t the only ones that Landry and Smith have received.
Bartelstein, reached late Wednesday night, said both players have garnered interest from several teams, though each played key roles with the Hornets last season.
“We’ve talked with the Hornets a bunch today,” Bartelstein said, “and I think both Carl and Jason will both move toward making a decision maybe as early as (Thursday).”
