Perfect? Yeah perfect. If only he could make a few wide open outside shots and not be a momentum killer as much as he showed last season.

  1. Sad to see my friend and teammate @MettaWorldPeace leave. He's a player that has my admiration and respect. I wish him nothing but the best!

Metta World Peace walked into the Lakers practice facility shortly after Nick Young's presser ended


OMG HE'S OUR DEFENSIVE ASSISTANT :laughing:

Metta World Peace just told @mcten and I that he has no desire to play in the NBA next season. Not for Knick, Nets, Clippers..no one #Lakers

Metta said his top desires are playing in China, working with a team as a player development coach, and playing arena football. #Lakers

Is Ron hinting retirement today? Get him a job with the Lakers organization as a player development coach, Phil. He can teach the young heads how to play man to man defense.

I just wonder whether he can return as a staff member of the team that amnestied him. Obviously he is not allowed as a player but not sure if we can have him on the staff. We would in essence be paying him twice. Im in no way against it. I would love Metta here in some capacity still.

Three hours until the Metta World Peace deadline for unrestricted free agency. No team has informed Peace that they've made a claim yet.

 

Don't be shocked if MWP ends up a Clipper if not claimed . . .

 

I've heard guys like CP3 - Matt reached out to MWP - he could come in as backup PF

If he isnt picked up in 2 hours he becomes unrestricted apparently. But then again League offices are closed on Saturdays and Sundays and we wont know the highest bidder until Monday.

Knicks will offer a contract to Metta World Peace at 5 EST today if he clears waivers.

 

@NYPost_Berman USA Today now reporting "never mind" about Clippers on top of Metta list. More to point. Cllips not that interested.

 

At least he's not joining Clippers, that's a good sign.

knicks better freaking make a bid on MWP...


SOMEONE HAS TOO RIGHT?
I mean... why let him go to waviers is you are the knicks and you want him?

Offer to pay 1% of his salary, or the min bid...
+1 $ just to throw off any other team doing the same thing

Metta World Peace has cleared waivers and become a free agent, league source tells Y! Sports.

 

He's a free man.

Metta World Peace wants to play for the New York Knicks, according to a person close to the veteran small forward.
