When Metta World Peace signed with the Knicks this summer after being waived using the amnesty clause by the Lakers, it was a coming home party. It was supposed to be where he finished his career, a place he could be loved and help the Knicks get over the hump with his defense.

Today MWP told Twitter he's working on a buyout with the Knicks.

His brother Daniel went on a Twitter rampage Saturday, criticizing everyone in the organization, calling Mike Woodson "a puppet," saying owner James Dolan is manipulated by people, etc.

The Knicks, everyone!

MWP has appeared in just 29 games this season, averaging 4.8 points and 2.0 rebounds in a little over 13 minutes per game. As messed up as the Knicks are, there's a reason the Lakers used the amnesty on him and a reason he's struggled to get minutes since returning from injury. Then again, could he honestly be worse than what we've seen from New York?

His brother tweeted that Indiana, Miami, and the Spurs are in play if the buyout is finished. A return to Indiana would certainly be... interesting.
