MWP is going back to Lakers

MWP back to la

Free-agent forward Metta World Peace has reached agreement on a one-year, non-guaranteed deal to return to the Los Angeles Lakers, league sources told Yahoo Sports.


World Peace will sign his contract Thursday, and take a physical to formalize the agreement on Friday, league sources said.
World Peace is expected to make the roster and play a role as a small forward off the bench, and a veteran extension of coach Byron Scott in the young Lakers locker room.

He will join the Lakers in Hawaii on Monday for the start of training camp.

World Peace has been out of the NBA for a year, and eager for the chance to potentially end his career with the Lakers, where he won a championship and became a fan favorite.

World Peace, 35, has been participating in informal workouts with the Lakers throughout the summer, and has impressed the organization with his connection to the younger players, especially 2014 No. 7 overall pick Julius Randle.

World Peace has been out of the NBA since the New York Knicks waived him during the 2013-14 season. He played last season in China and Italy.

World Peace played four seasons with the Lakers from 2009-13 and was instrumental in them winning the 2010 championship. Los Angeles amnestied World Peace after the 2012-13 season.

In 15 NBA seasons, World Peace has averaged 13.7 points and 4.7 rebounds. He had stops with the Chicago Bulls, Indiana Pacers, Sacramento Kings, Houston Rockets, Lakers and Knicks.
