The 36-year-old has been working out with the Lakers daily.
World Peace, a 16-year NBA veteran, made the Lakers’ roster out of camp last season on a non-guaranteed deal and had an impact on the young roster with his mentorship and practice habits. World Peace averaged five points and 2.5 rebounds in 35 games in 2015-16.
He is expected to compete in camp along with undrafted signings Julian Jacobs and Zach Auguste and forward Travis Wear.
World Peace played for the Lakers from 2009-2013 and helped the franchise an NBA championship in 2010.
