Team officials at the NBA summer league in Las Vegas would not confirm the move, but World Peace says he is excited to join Carmelo Anthony and the Knicks.

He was in Las Vegas for the NBA summer league.

World Peace was waived Thursday by the Los Angeles Lakers, who used the amnesty clause to create salary cap space. The 6-foot-7 forward will still be paid the $7.7 million that was owed to him by the Lakers/

World Peace grew up in New York and attended St. John's, when he was known as Ron Artest.

In 14 NBA seasons with five teams, he has averaged 14.1 points and 4.7 rebounds per game.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Knicks are currently 22/1 to win the 2014 NBA Championship, although that could change with the signing of Metta World Peace. The Heat, meanwhile, are 2/1 favorites while the Thunder are 6/1 and the Rockets are 9/1. The Bulls are also 10/1 while the Clippers and Spurs are both 12/1, respectively.
