World Peace to Join New York Knicks

(probasketballtalk.nbcsports.com)

According to ESPN.COM, Metta World Peace is heading to New York to play for the Knicks. World Peace cleared waivers late Sunday afternoon after being amnestied by the Los Angeles Lakers. Artest said he wanted to join the Knicks because he wanted to win ” I don’t care if I’m starting or sweeping the floors. You hear me? I want to win,” World Peace went on to tell one reporter.

Terms of the deal have been confirmed, World Peace is set to sign a 2 year deal worth $1.6 million per year according to NBA.COM. The Lakers also owe Artest $7.3 million next year due to the current amnesty provision that the NBA has, this provision allows a team to release certain players without having their salaries count against the salary cap. World Peace should be able to help the Knicks on both ends of the floor, with his lock down defense and scoring. The biggest question is: Can World Peace keep it together for another two seasons?

The Lakers should thank World Peace for his dominating performance in the 2010 NBA Finals Game 7 vs the Boston Celtics, in this game Kobe Bryant finished 6 of 24 from the field and Pau Gasol shot just 6 of 16. It was World Peace hustle, rebounding and late clutch 3 point shooting that won the Lakers that game. If World Peace did not have the game of his life in game 7, then the celtics would have undoubtedly earned banner number 18
