(WOIO) -

According to multiple sources, Metta World Peace has agreed in principle to a two-year deal with the New York Knicks. The former Los Angeles Lakers forward was waived last week by way of the leagues amnesty clause in order to save cap space.

World Peace will still be paid the $7.7 million dollars owed to him by the Lakers, on top of the $1.6 million he is expected to earn as a Knick.

Landing with the Knicks will be a homecoming for Metta,as he played his college basketball for St. Johns University and grew up in the famed Queensbridge projects.
