Ranking Potential Landing Spots for Former Laker Metta World Peace

Is Metta World Peace telling Carmelo Anthony that he'd like to join the New York Knicks?

Metta World Peace has officially been amnestied, and that leaves a bunch of options open for the veteran small forward who has made a name for himself with suffocating defensive play. 

As ESPN's Dave McMenamin reports, World Peace could do a number of things now that he's hitting waivers. MWP will still make the $7.7 million he's owed by the Los Angeles Lakers, but he'll be continuing his professional career elsewhere. 

If World Peace is claimed off waivers by a team he doesn't want to play for, he could retire. He's also considered playing in China. Then again, he could just latch on to a contending team right away and play out the 2013-14 NBA season. 

According to ESPN, Jose Morales, a longtime friend of the small forward, said MWP wants to either stay in Los Angeles with the Clippers or move to his hometown: New York. That said, he's sensible enough that he'd listen to other teams' pitches if they picked him up. 


World Peace hasn't confirmed that these six landing spots are all legitimate options, but they're still the best choices for the next chapter of his basketball days.
