LOS ANGELES (AP) - While former Lakers and Knicks forward Metta World Peace remains a free agent, he's signed on to work as a girl's high school hoops coach.
Palisades Charter High School coach Torino Johnson tells the Orange County Register (http://bit.ly/1oYiqhv ) that World Peace will be an assistant coach at the Los Angeles school.
Johnson says he first met World Peace while coaching his daughter, Sadie, when she played for the Palisades Dolphins.
From 2009 to 2013, World Peace played for the Los Angeles Lakers. Last season, the 34-year-old forward played 29 games for the New York Knicks.
World Peace, previously known as Ron Artest, has also authored two children's books since 2013.
