After World Peace was amnestied in order to save the Lakers about $15 million in luxury tax, rumors began to circulate about him returning to his Queensbridge roots with the New York Knicks.

However, Metta had different ideas in mind when speaking to ESPN’s Dave McMenamin and NBC LA’s Shahan Ahmed yesterday. World Peace informed them he has no interest in playing in the NBA if he doesn’t clear waivers and would like to go to China or play arena football.

Today is a new day and World Peace already has a new plan: playing for the Clippers.

According to USA Today’s Sam Amick (h/t SportsCity.com):

A person with knowledge of World Peace’s situation told USA TODAY Sports that he now has the Los Angeles Clippers atop his list of possible destinations. The Queensbridge, N.Y. native previously had his hometown New York Knicks as his preferred choice his list of favorites, but he is now said to be more interested in joining the new-look Clippers while being able to avoid relocating.

Assuming Metta does clear waivers, the Clippers would unfortunately be an ideal destination for him. While he would only receive the veteran’s minimum, the Lakers will still have to pay him the remainder of his contract which is $7.7 million.

For World Peace, avoiding relocating elsewhere would benefit him and his family. For the Clippers, it sounds like they are looking to play some small-ball and World Peace was decent at the ‘4’ position this past season.

It’s going to be difficult possibly seeing World Peace in a Clippers uniform, but I’m sure all of us want Metta to make the best decision for him and his family.

In four seasons, World Peace averaged 9.4 points and delivered his best performance as a Laker in Game 7 of the 2010 NBA Finals in route to his first championship.
