MWP signs with Knicks

Metta World Peace was amnestied by the Lakers late last week, making himself available to be claimed via the waiver wire. However, after he cleared that unclaimed, Metta became a free agent. Many thought the Knicks and Metta shared mutual interest, followed by the Clippers and possibly even China. Those rumors were confirmed Monday afternoon when Metta agreed to a two-year deal with the Knicks.

 

 

MWP was a childhood Knicks fans and has maintained he’s a fan of the team throughout his career, often appearing in Knicks apparel. Most recently, he posted a picture on Instagram in a Lakers shirt and Knicks hat.
