UPDATE Tuesday, June 25: MWP has exercised his player option at $7.7M and opted in for his final year with the Lakers.
Late Monday night, June 24 @MettaWorldPeace tweeted some veiled messages about his future.
“I had a great time here in LA!! Love you guys.. You are truly amazing. I have some news!!!”
“…Thanks for all your support over the years.”
“…celebration party tba tomorrow night!! Come join me!!”
Metta World Peace currently has a player option for $7.7M next season, which is the final year of his 5-year deal signed in the 2009 offseason.
It has been reported that the Lakers could use their one-time amnesty provision on Metta World Peace should he decide to opt out of his Lakers deal.
Metta opting out would give the Lakers greater financial flexibility and the ability to start the process to get under the salary cap and keep the amnesty provision for another player in the future.
