LAS VEGAS (AP) - Metta World Peace says he will be signing with the New York Knicks.
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.
