NBA Trade Rumors: San Antonio Spurs could sign Metta World Peace

The San Antonio Spurs have a special way of bringing the best talent out of castoffs and players with questionable histories.

Enter Metta World Peace, the man formally known as Ron Artest, who is in the process of ‘officially’ being bought out by the New York Knicks.

The move is simply nothing more than a few documents away from happening and according to Mike Monroe, once it is official, the San Antonio Spurs could have interest in signing World Peace.

When, and if, the buyout happens should the Spurs be interested in a former Defensive Player of the Year as they head to the stretch run?

Monroe goes on to suggest that assistant coach Chad Forcier was on the Indiana Pacers staff during World Peace’s tenure with the Pacers and the uncertain future of Kawhi Leonard could result in the Spurs having interest in the veteran forward.

For what it’s worth – World Peace (while still strange) isn’t the distraction he once was with the Chicago Bulls and Indiana Pacers, so there’s not much the Spurs would have to worry about in that regard.
