Metta World Peace's brother cites Spurs as possibility

Daniel Artest, the outspoken brother of veteran small forward Metta World Peace, went on an epic Twitter rant Saturday morning upon learning that his older sibling is soon to be bought out by the reeling New York Knicks. (UPDATE: Artest has since deleted the Tweets.)

Take it for what its worth, but one Tweet included the teams MWP would apparently prefer playing for after his release:
Miami, SA or Clippers. Indy in play

Whether the Spurs would have any interest in remains to be seen, particularly after swapping Nando De Colo for small forward Austin Daye before the trade deadline. But Yahoo! Sports reported on Saturday that theyll sift through the buyout market before making a decision whether to re-sign Shannon Brown, whose second 10-day contact expires today.

World Peace, 34, has played sparingly for the Knicks this season, averaging 4.8 points and 2.0 rebounds with an 11.8 Player Efficiency Rating in 29 appearances. Danny Granger, another possibility should Philadelphia buy him out, has better averages but is shooting just 35.9 percent this season with a 10.4 PER. And as the E-Ns Mike Monroe notes, World Peace at least has ties to the Spurs. (It should be noted as well that Granger played with current Spurs reserve Jeff Ayres, and for assistant coach Jim Boylen, in Indiana.)
