Yahoo! Sports’ Adrian Wojnarowski reports the forward has signed a two-year deal with the New York Knicks. World Peace, a Queens native and St. John’s alum, was released by the Los Angeles Lakers just last week for salary cap reasons. World Peace had just finished the fourth year of a five-year, $33 million contract with the Lakers at the time of his release, an amnesty buyout. World Peace’s deal with the Knicks is reportedly worth $3.2 million.

World Peace played 75 games and started 66 last year for the Lakers, scoring 14.1 points per game and adding 4.7 rebounds per contest.
