Knicks sign Metta World Peace

It’s official

The artist formally known as Ron Artest has agreed to terms with the New York Knicks on a two-year deal, with the second year being a player option.

World Peace cleared waivers late Sunday afternoon after being amnestied by the Los Angeles Lakers, which made the veteran small forward an unrestricted free agent.

World Peace reportedly agreed to sign for approximately $1.6 million per season, meaning the Knicks used the remainder of their mini-midlevel exception to sign the former Laker.

In true Metta World Peace fashion, the newest Knicks star took to Twitter to take a light hearted jab at his newest rival:
