At 34, World Peace isn’t receiving considerable interest as a free agent, but hopes that he might land in familiar surroundings. The veteran forward would welcome a return to Los Angeles or New York, according to Mark Medina of the L.A. Daily News:

At this point in his career, World Peace might only be receiving offers of the veteran’s minimum to play next season. The one-time NBA champion could be hoping for more, but the three teams he’s interested in signing with may not be willing to pay more than the minimum.

World Peace played in only 29 games for the Knicks last season averaging only 13.4 minutes per game after having a substantial role with the Lakers. World Peace ultimately agreed to a buyout of his contract making him a free agent, but didn’t sign with another team.

With the Lakers in rebuilding mode and currently looking for players willing to take less, World Peace may become an option for the team with a need at small forward. The Lakers currently have a number of guards on the team that includes Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Jordan Clarkson, Nick Young and Kendall Marshall. Kobe and Young can play at the three spot, but both players are better suited at shooting guard.

In World Peace’s last season with the Lakers, the veteran forward averaged 12.4 points, 5.0 rebounds and 1.6 steals per contest.

    I know he’s a fan favorite and a favorite team mate of Kobe’s, but really, at this point in his career is he even better than Wesley Johnson? I don’t think so IMO

  • LakerJ

    Henry signs for one year. Marshall was waived. This is what we look like so far pending Clarkson being signed.

    Lin, Nash, Clarkson
    Kobe, N. Young
    X. Henry,
    Boozer, Randle, Kelly
    Hill, Davis, Sacre

    Aminu next???

      Woah.. Nice. Now Clarkson can get more play time.

      Evan Turner would make a nice edition to the SF position.

    You guys are so sorry for still paying attention to the Lakers.
    Charlotte executed a short term deal with Stephenson, who is a star in every sense and would be the best player on the Lakers roster right now, why not the Lakers.
    The Heat gave Deng a short term contract at a cheap rate.
    Why did the Lakers not do it. Spencer Hawes was also, cheap for the Clippers.
    The Laker should be picking up these stars and roll players until they can get a real star who might be willing to come to LA. When the roll players are in place, then, and only then, will any star consider coming to the Lakers.
    But, what the Lakers are collecting are D league junks.
    This is not the team that has had Magic, Shaq and Kobe.

    Once the roster is basically complete. Trade Lin, Henry, Sacre to Philly for MCW and Thad’ Young. We need defense on the perimeter. MCW has a good start with ROY and Young is a solid piece. Both along with Randle could be future pieces to make a talented squad. This will help lure the FAs over the next 2 years. Either trade pieces or bringing in max players over the next two years. Preferbly Marc Gasol and Rudy Gay

    • Harv2177

      Starting 5: MCW/Kobe/Gay/Boozer/ M.Gasol
      Bench: Clarkson/Swaggy/Young/Randle/Hill

    WE NEED A CENTER , No more PF or SF please , things we need are reliable role players and a center that is all we ask for
