Metta World Peace Re-Signed To Lakers, Sources Say

Metta World Peace has agreed to terms with the Los Angeles Lakers and will sign a one-year deal with the team according to Adrian Wojnarowski.

World Peace—who didn’t play in the NBA at all last season—is reportedly scheduled to sign his deal with the Lakers today before taking a physical tomorrow. Assuming that all goes well, he will then join the team in Hawaii next week where the Lakers will hold their training camp this preseason (must be nice!).

World Peace probably won’t play a huge role for the team this season, if he makes it, but he is expected to serve as a mentor to young Lakers star-in-the-making Julius Randle.
