His amnesty now finalized, it is time for Metta World Peace to move on from the Lakers. In fact, talk of his next destination has bubbled since before he was even let go, with the Knicks reportedly topping his list of choices. By Friday, though, another name had risen to the top of World Peace's list, according to a report from USA Today's Sam Amick: the Clippers. According to the report, World Peace is still interested in returning to the NBA, despite telling reporters in Los Angeles on Friday that he would be open to playing in China, becoming an arena football player or coaching. That said, hes not interested in relocating, hence the appeal of the Clippers, who could only pay him a veterans minimum deal of 1.4 million. World Peace still has to go through a 48-hour waiver period beginning Friday night. If a team were to pick him up in that time, whatever it agreed to pay him would count against the 7.7 million the Lakers still owe. If he clears waivers, hell have a chance to sign as a free agent with the team of his choosing. World Peace could be putting these options out there solely to dissuade teams from picking him up off the wire, and if he is picked up and refuses to report, hed lose the 7.7 million coming his way. Amick writes that World Peace has a list of teams he'd like to play with beyond just the Clippers and Knicks, which includes the Nets, Bulls, Heat, Thunder, Spurs and Pacers. There has been no confirmation as to whether the Clippers are interested in World Peace's services.
