Lakers News: Kobe Bryant Tweets About Amnestying Metta World Peace

It’s been a busy day in Lakerland as the team agreed to terms on a one-year contract with Chris Kaman and it’s been reported that they’ll amnesty Metta World Peace.

While they can’t officially announce the transaction with World Peace until July 10-16, Lakers guard Kobe Bryant confirmed the transaction via his Twitter account tonight:

World Peace was praised by Bryant several times due to his incredible work ethic and uncanny determination to win at all costs, something that resonated deeply with Bryant.

The game that Bryant is referring to is when World Peace hit the game clinching three-pointer against the Boston Celtics in Game 7 of the 2010 Finals after Kobe couldn’t buy a basket.

World Peace went on to have one of the more memorable post-game press conferences, where he thanked his psychiatrist for his play on the court.

Since Dwight Howard left for Houston, the Lakers are looking to get as far under the luxury tax threshold in order to secure as much cap space before next off-season.

The 2013-14 free agent class includes superstars like LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Dwyane Wade and John Wall to name a few.
