Where in the World will Metta go?

On Wednesday, July 10, the Los Angeles Lakers amnestied small forward Metta World Peace after picking up former Philadelphia 76ers shooting guard Nick Young.

World Peace, formerly Ron Artest, took to Twitter to respond, but did so in an unconventional way.

Following a series of unusual tweets, he then tweeted more, saying that he wanted to leave the NBA and go play either basketball in China with Yao Ming, hockey, arena football or even become a developmental coach.

More recently, World Peace will be meeting with his hometown team, the New York Knicks, within the next few days to discuss the option of joining the team. The contract would be worth $1.6 million for the 2013-2014 season.

World Peace has also expressed interest in joining the Los Angeles Clippers.

Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni went on record saying that the decision to amnesty World Peace was strictly financial, but whether this was a good decision or not is debatable.
