Game Changer: Metta World Peace Signs to New York Knicks

Metta World Peace is headed back to where it all started for him as a basketball player, New York City. The Queens native, who was recently amnestied by the Los Angeles Lakers, has reached an agreement to play with the New York Knicks.

“I don’t care if I’m starting, or sweeping the floors. You hear me? I want to win,” World Peace said.

Officials from the Knicks reported that they have agreed to terms with the NBA player, but a contract has not yet been signed.

According to reports, on the table is a two-year contract with the first year guaranteed. World Peace would get $1.6 million per season, with a player option for year 2.

World Peace’s agent Marc Cornstein confirmed the team that his client will be playing for next season.

“Yes, this is going to happen,” Cornstein said. “He’s just thrilled to be joining the New York Knicks. He’s really excited to be joining his hometown team. That’s obviously been something that’s been a dream of his since growing up in Queensbridge.”
