Metta World Peace signs with Los Angeles Lakers

With training camp just around the corner, the Los Angeles Lakers have apparently signed a deal with Metta World Peace. The 36 year old forward (who is actually older than head coach Luke Walton) was able to beat out enough young players to make the Lakers’ 15 man squad last year, but he will have to prove himself all over again for the 2016-17 season.

It’s unclear what type of role MWP will have for this young Lakers team, but it’s possible that he was brought on to be a veteran mentor, much like he did last season.
