Only Metta World Peace truly knows what he wants to do in the post Los Angeles Lakers portion of his life, but this much is clear: he has no interest in being picked up off of waivers by the Sunday evening deadline.
Yet while World Peace told reporters in Los Angeles on Friday that he was considering retiring, playing in China, playing arena football or perhaps becoming a player development coach, the reality remains that he would not be paid the $7.7 million he is owed if he refused to report to the team that claimed him.
