Landry was waived Wednesday by the 76ers, Shams Charania of Yahoo! Sports reports.
The Sixers had an abundance of big men on the roster heading into training camp, so ridding themselves of Landry, who was projected to be a bench player, was a necessarily evil in order to create flexibility elsewhere. The veteran forward is due $6.75 million for the upcoming season, meaning that only the Nets, Suns, Timberwolves, Nuggets, Jazz and Cavaliers would have cap room to potentially put a claim in. It seems more likely than not that any interested suitors would allow Landry to become a free agent, when he could probably be signed for the veteran's minimum. Landry missed more than half of last season with wrist and back injuries, but was productive in a reserve role for the 76ers, averaging 9.8 points and 4.1 rebounds in 15.8 minutes per game.
