World Peace to meet with Knicks

The SportsXchange

Metta World Peace met with the New York Knicks in Las Vegas on Monday, according to USA Today.

World Peace, who was released by the Los Angeles Lakers in using their one-time amnesty clause, also plans to meet with other teams.

He is also interested in playing in China and is slated to meet former Houston Rockets center Yao Ming, who owns a team in China.

The Lakers still owe World Peace $7.7 million, but the money will not count against their salary cap for this season.

World Peace indicated that he is only interested in playing for a contender, listing the Knicks, Los Angeles Clippers, Brooklyn Nets, Chicago Bulls, Miami Heat, Oklahoma City Thunder, San Antonio Spurs and Indiana Pacers as teams he is interested in.

He averaged 12.4 points and 5.0 rebounds last season for the Lakers but had a knee injury at the end of the season that required surgery.
