6:15pm: World Peace texted Brad Turner of the Los Angeles Times (on Twitter) and expressed that he is interested the Clippers, but has to "meet them first".

4:03pm: Metta World Peace has gone unclaimed on the amnesty waiver process and is now a free agent, a league source tells Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports (via Twitter).  Teams had until 4pm central to claim the forward.

While World Peace was rumored to be eyeing a move to China, it now appears that he wasn't entirely serious about that notion.  A source told Chris Broussard of earlier today that his top preference is to sign with the Knicks with the Clippers as a fairly distant second and China in third.  The interest between MWP and the Knicks is believed to be mutual.
