After the worst win percentage in franchise history, the Los Angeles Lakers made numerous moves, highlighted by drafting D’Angelo Russell and trading for Roy Hibbert. While the team recently signed Jonathan Holmes, they are also reportedly signing Michael Frazier.

With the first preseason game in Hawaii not until Oct. 4, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reveals the Lakers are ‘seriously considering’ signing their former player and one-time champion, Metta World Peace:

The Los Angeles Lakers are discussing the possibility of signing free agent forward Metta World Peace to a one-year contract, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

In addition, Wojnarowski shares there are varying degrees of interest within the organization about bringing him back. However, World Peace has been playing against Julius Randle during the off-season:

There are varying degrees of interest within the Lakers organization about bringing him back to the franchise at 35 years old, but World Peace has been in the Lakers’ practice facility this offseason playing against the team’s players, including 2014 first-round pick Julius Randle, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

World Peace signed with the Lakers before the 2009-10 season where he was instrumental in Game 7 of the 2010 NBA Finals against the Boston Celtics. After four seasons with the franchise, World Peace was amnestied after the 2012-13 season.

Since being amnestied by the Lakers, World Peace moved on to the New York Knicks for 29 games, but has since played for China and Italy this past season.
