    Default Lakers to Amnesty Metta World War.... any chance of return to NY roots?

    [Only registered and activated users can see links. ] will be waived via amnesty by Lakers to save about $30 million, barring some late change.>

    via Kevin Ding "Dong", Orange County Register reporter.

    He could be gotten for vet. min... Does he want to return to New York, I think I remember him saying he wasn't opposed to it... Anything is possible...

    His defense and 3 Pt shooting could be useful, could actually put him in starting rotation along side Shumpert at the SF...
    Iman and Meta at the wings, two defensive minded players, both are intriguing offensive outside shooters which is what we need...

    Felton -- Shumpert -- MWP -- Anthony -- Chandler starting 5 -- This I would sign up for...

    I feel like he makes since on our team and would fit well. He's crazy but he's tough.

    Well he's still getting the 8 mil that's owed to him for the Lakers so I doubt he would mind taking the mle or minimum to come to NY

    TWO THINGS...he's AMNESTIED so LA pays him 7.7 million dollars but it does not go into their salary cap and the luxury tax is reduced BUT he says he wants to play in CHINA or Coach...and does not want to sign with an NBA team...but WE GOT HIM. YIPEEE

    smokescreen... he didn't want to be subjected to play for any organization but the one he chooses... of course he didn't want to be amnestied but now he can choose where he wants to go... the knicks were one of his top destinations and it looks like he has reconsidered his previous banter on "NBA not being an option next season" (smokescreen to defer teams from acquiring him via the waiver process)...

    Even if it was a smokescreen he could have said that playing for the Knicks was a life long dream instead of playing for the Knicks was a ship that sailed. Really not sure he's coming now that he's cleared waivers because I believe his options are wide open since he cleared waivers, he can retire, play in the AFL, go to China and still get his amnesty money from the Lakers.

    He will probably come to the Knicks just because its home town... and there's a good chance of getting another chip. I don't think he cares about the money at all. Dude sold his championship ring, so he will play the game for pride. We will see...
