Best NBA Destinations for Metta World Peace After NY Knicks Buyout
David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

It's time for Metta World Peace to find a new home. 

As entertaining as his online exploits might be for all of us, he can't just become a professional Twitter master, and he's still a solid enough role player that he should be able to land with another team once his buyout with the New York Knicks is complete. 

Newsday's Al Iannazzone first broke the news, tweeting, "I am hearing the Metta and Beno buyouts are agreed upon. Not sure when they will be official or announced." 

World Peace himself also told the world, "My agent just informed me this release could happen any hr now. I just want to say 'Thanks for everything.'"

So while he's not officially off the New York roster, he might as well be. And that means it's time for him to start searching for the next uniform he gets to put on. 

He has been having a rough season for the dysfunctional Knicks, as he's almost completely fallen out of the rotation during recent weeks. Sometimes a change is necessary when a veteran is trying to turn things around, and his defensive skills should ensure that he gets a new opportunity. 

Chances are that World Peace won't waste his time with a non-contender, so you can scratch all teams that aren't at least on the verge of making the playoffs. Chemistry is also going to be a concern, so don't expect to see a team like the Miami Heat snatching him up.
