Metta World Peace is now an unrestricted free agent after clearing amnesty waivers, and according to several reports, the rugged forward isn’t wasting anytime trying to figure out his next move.
Al Iannazzone of Newsday is reporting that the Knicks will now be the first team in line to try to sign World Peace.
If Metta World Peace clears amnesty waivers at 5 pm, the Knicks are expected to be first in line to sign him.

Chris Broussard is reporting that World Peace would prefer to play for his hometown Knicks, but that the Clippers are also in the mix, along with possible interest in heading to China to play for the Shanghai Sharks, who have utilized former Sharks and Rockets great Yao Ming as a go between.
Source close to Metta just told me MWP definitely wants to play for Knicks. Clippers fairly distant 2nd, China 3rd
