Metta World Peace Wants to play for Knicks, Clippers, Nets, Bulls, Heat, Thunder, Spurs, and Pacers

Metta World Peace has a laundry list of teams he wants to play for as he enters the NBA free agency market, including the New York Knicks, Los Angeles Clippers, Brooklyn Nets, Chicago Bulls, Miami Heat, Oklahoma City Thunder, San Antonio Spurs and the Indiana Pacers.

In other words, he wants to play for a contender now that his time with the Los Angeles Lakers is up.

The report comes from Sam Amick of USA TODAY:

There’s an obvious message being sent here by the 33-year-old who has logged 14 seasons: he has no interest in being picked up by a rebuilding team on waivers. Should the Lakers amnesty World Peace as the Orange County Register has reported they likely will, he would have to clear waivers first in order to control his own destination.

Of course at this point in his career World Peace wants another shot at a ring. He was unlikely to receive that with the Lakers anyway now that Dwight Howard is gone.

It’s hard to tell which of the above teams, if any, would want the controversial figure. Much of the discussion of a potential acquisition would come down to how much he wants to get paid and if he is comfortable with coming off the bench.

Stay tuned.

        What do I have to be bitter about? I’m actually givi g props to Indiana. As well as Memphis and golden state for being solid teams with potential of making the finals I didn’t include San Antonio cause he said he hates the spurs.

  • rjunex

    He is a bad guy if HE is not in your favorite team.. but you will like HIM much if he will play for your TEAM…

  • edgargn_1218

    Everbody hates the Spurs cause they always beat your team. That being said, he´d be a nice pick up for them to get em over the top in the Finals.
