Metta World Peace picks up option, stays with Lakers

While MWP spent the morning announcing his new reality show with Terrell Owens, the bigger news was announced later in the day.


According to Sam Amick of USA Today, MWP has picked up his player option and will remain with the Lakers for the 2013-14 season. World Peace is set to make $7,727,280 next season. The Lakers could still amnesty World Peace, shedding his salary plus the tax associated with it.


However, the Lakers don’t have an abundance of small forwards on the roster. Currently, World Peace is the only natural small forward, with Earl Clark and Kobe Bryant splitting time as the back-up last season.
Lakers Nation, do you think MWP is a Laker next season?
