On Wednesday, the Los Angeles Lakers signed Metta World Peace to a one-year, non-guaranteed contract, according to Yahoo!. Last year the Lakers gave Peace a one-year deal worth $1.4 million, so it’s unlikely he’ll see any additional boost in salary. The 36-year old small forward will be reunited with former teammate, now head coach, Luke Walton, with whom he won two NBA titles while in a Lakers uniform.
World Peace spent a season playing in China before returning to the NBA last season with the Lakers. During 2015, Peace appeared in 35 games, averaging 5.0 points and 2.5 rebounds, and averaging just 16.9 minutes a game.
