When the New York Knicks decided to part ways with forward Metta World Peace (and they officially released World Peace, along with point guard Beno Udrih, on Monday), many contenders were expected to be interested in signing World Peace.
The San Antonio Spurs are apparently interested in signing bringing World Peace in. The Los Angeles Clippers, who signed Glen “Big Baby” Davis on Monday, are also reportedly showing interest in the 14-year veteran. The Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder, the two favorites to play for the NBA Championship this season, are also expected to make a run at World Peace.
However, there is one team that is seemingly interested in every big name that has no desire to chase World Peace.
Also on the Metta World Peace front, sounds very unlikely that Brooklyn will have interest and keep him in the Big Apple.
