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.
Tommy DeeAgain, 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.
