Clippers Have Interest In Signing Metta World Peace


We knew the Los Angeles Clippers would be active in pursuing players who were being bought out by their teams. After officially signing Glen Davis today it looks like the Clips may have interest in former Los Angeles Laker Metta World Peace.

The Clippers made two minor moves before the NBA Trade Deadline when they shipped Byron Mullens to Philadelphia and Antawn Jamison to Atlanta. By making these moves they created room on the roster to sign players who were sure to be bought out by their current clubs. Adding Davis filled a huge void at the PF/C position and now the Clippers may add Peace.

While Sam Amick of USA Today, who first reported the story, doesn’t believe it’s a slam dunk that the Clippers would sign Metta, it would make sense. Peace is still a capable defender whom Doc Rivers could use on his second line. Peace is going to want to go to a contender and he is obviously familiar with Los Angeles. Davis and Peace would certainly be upgrades over Jamison and Mullens. The Clippers should absolutely consider this move.
