According to the OC Register, the Los Angeles Lakers will part ways with forward Metta World Peace, by amnestying him between July 10-16. Kobe Bryant tweeted that he wishes that wasn’t the case: “Sweet a guy as he is, @MettaWorldPeace will be waived via amnesty by Lakers to save about $30 million, barring some late change … Lakers will sign (a small forward) for minimum salary or move Kobe to SF. […] ‘No game 7 win without Metta! This is a tough day for laker nation … Personally I’d keep Metta and make a run with the unit we have and just add a few pieces #keepthepeace #lakersstilldeciding.'”
