Once the NBA and the New Orleans Hornets were finally able to trade Chris Paul, they set their sights on free agency. Carl Landry, who started at power forward for the Hornets in last year's postseason, resigned with NOLA today on a one year contract worth a little less than $9 million.

Landry's agent credited his client's relationship with Hornets head coach Monty Williams and GM Dell Demps as the biggest reason Landry re-upped with New Orleans.

Carl has spoken fondly of his time in the Crescent City a season ago,  patiently waiting for the league to settle their CP3 trade issue. Despite interest from several other teams, Landry wanted to come back to the Hornets.
