Landry Fields (born June 27, 1988) is an American retired professional basketball player who played five seasons in the National Basketball Association (NBA). He currently serves as a college scout for the San Antonio Spurs.

Early life[edit]

Fields was born in Long Beach, California to Steve and Janice Fields.[1] Landry was one of three children and attended Ellwood P. Cubberley Elementary School and later Los Alamitos High School in Los Alamitos, California.[1] Fields was a three-year letter-winner on the varsity basketball squad, which he captained during his junior and senior seasons.[2] Though he was heavily recruited by Arizona coach Lute Olson and by Gonzaga University, Fields ultimately chose to play for Trent Johnson and Stanford, joining twin brothers Robin and Brook Lopez to create one of the top recruiting classes in the nation.[3]

College career[edit]

As a freshman at Stanford in 2006–07, Fields appeared in 30 games all off the bench as he averaged 4.1 points and 2.0 rebounds per game. As a sophomore in 2007–08, he again had a very similar role and production to his freshman season as he averaged 4.1 points and 2.0 rebounds in 33 games off the bench.[2]

As a junior in 2008–09, Fields started 33 of 34 games he appeared in as he averaged 12.6 points and a team-best 6.6 rebounds per game.[2]

As a senior in 2009–10, Fields had a break-out season as he earned first-team All-Pac-10 honors after averaging a league-leading 22.0 points and 8.8 rebounds per game. He also earned USBWA All-District IX Team and first-team NABC Division I All-District 20 honors in addition to earning Pac-10 Scholar-Athlete of the Year accolades.[2]

Professional career[edit]

New York Knicks (2010–2012)[edit]

Fields was selected with the 39th overall pick in the 2010 NBA draft by the New York Knicks.[4] In July 2010, he joined the Knicks for the 2010 NBA Summer League where he averaged a team-high 15.6 points in addition to 4.8 rebounds and 1.6 steals in five games. On August 26, 2010, he signed his rookie scale contract with the Knicks.[5] He went on to earn Rookie of the Month honors in the Eastern Conference for the months of November and December 2010.[6][7] On February 6, 2011, he scored a career high 25 points, in addition to 10 rebounds, in the 117–103 win over the Philadelphia 76ers.[8] To cap off his strong rookie season, he was named to the NBA All-Rookie first team.[9]

Landry and teammate Jeremy Lin were selected to play for Team Shaq in the 2012 NBA All-Star Weekend Rising Stars Challenge.[10] Landry was also a member of the New York team that won the Shooting Stars Competition.[11]

On June 26, 2012, the Knicks tendered a qualifying offer to make Landry a restricted free agent.[12]

Toronto Raptors (2012–2015)[edit]

On July 11, 2012, Fields received a three-year, $20 million offer sheet from the Toronto Raptors.[13] The Knicks declined to match the offer, and Fields signed with the Raptors on July 15, 2012.[14]

After his impressive stint with the Knicks, the Raptors expected big things from Landry as he continued to develop. However, Fields struggled with Toronto, partially due to injuries as he played just 81 games over his first two seasons with the franchise. He had several surgeries repairing the ulnar nerve in his right arm, and with constant rehabilitation, he was forced to learn a new shooting form.[15]

Injury and retirement[edit]

Fields became an unrestricted free agent in July 2015. In September 2015, he underwent surgery for a hip labral tear and was subsequently ruled out for five months.[16] He ultimately sat out the entire 2015–16 season.

On September 16, 2016, Fields was named a college scout for the San Antonio Spurs, effectively ending his playing career.[17]

Television and other media[edit]

On March 20, 2011, The Andy and Landry Show debuted. The show featured Fields and then-teammate Andy Rautins exploring different areas of New York City. The first episode focused on them visiting the Shubert Theater, with cast members from Tony Award-winning Broadway musical "Memphis." In another episode, they went on a speed-dating event. After Rautins was traded by the Knicks before the 2011–12 season, the show was discontinued.[18]

In May 2014, Fields was a contestant on Sing Your Face Off, a show where celebrities impersonated and sing songs of an artist they were assigned. He sang as Lionel Richie, Pitbull, Enrique Iglesias, Nicki Minaj, MC Hammer, and Little Richard. On June 14, 2014, Fields was announced as the co-runner-up along with Lisa Rinna, while China Anne McClain was named the winner.[19]

Personal life[edit]

Fields' father, Steve Fields, played collegiate basketball at Miami of Ohio;[20] he was drafted by the Portland Trail Blazers in 1975, but never played an NBA game.[21] Fields' mother, Janice Fields, played forward at Highland (Wash.) Community College.[22] Fields has two aunts, an uncle, and a cousin (Cameron Jones) who also played college basketball.[23]

Fields is "the product of a mixed marriage"; his father is African-American, and his mother is Caucasian. "Landry has a younger sister, Celena, 16, and a half-brother, Evan, 28."[24]

In July 2014, Fields married model girlfriend Elaine Alden. The couple have two sons: Jackson James Fields, born in 2013, and Kai David Fields, born in 2016.[25]

Fields has publicly identified himself as a Christian.[26]

Fields is a close friend of former Knicks teammate Jeremy Lin.[27]
