On Monday, a report surfaced that the San Antonio Spurs could be interested in signing forward Metta World Peace. Later in the day, another report suggested the Los Angeles Clippers, who already agreed to a deal with Glen “Big Baby” Davis, who was bought out by the Orlando Magic, were interested in bringing in World Peace.
It is obvious that World Peace wants to join a contender and the Spurs and Clippers aren’t the only two teams he is hoping to hear from.

The Knicks officially released both World Peace and point guard Beno Udrih after neither offseason signing worked out. Both players battled through injuries and fell out of favor in the rotation.
Although World Peace obviously hasn’t been the same player in recent years, he could still help a team as a role player off of the bench.
World Peace averaged 4.8 points and 2.0 rebounds per game in 29 games for the Knicks this season.
