Again, sign me up. MWP brings the toughness and playoff experience that the Knicks need to add. He can defend 3 positions and can play the 3 or the 4 in Mike Woodson's system. This is a move they had to make if and when it goes down.
The Knicks are the strong frontrunner to sign World Peace to a contract worth almost $1.6 million for the 2013-14 season, sources said. A possible deal could include a second year with a player option, league sources said. The Knicks plan to give World Peace half of their $3.1 million taxpayer midlevel exception. The other half of the exception was used to re-sign guard Pablo Prigioni.
The Knicks are confident World Peace will sign with them, league sources told Y! Sports.
