Metta World Peace won’t be a Maverick.

According to a source, the Mavs don’t intend to enter a bid for World Peace during the amnesty waivers process. The Los Angeles Lakers used the amnesty clause to waive World Peace yesterday.

In a previous life as Ron Artest, World Peace was an All-Star while playing for coach Rick Carlisle with the Indiana Pacers in 2003-04. Their time together ended in ugly fashion – Artest was suspended for the majority of the next season after the infamous Malice at The Palace melee and traded early in the 2005-06 season – but Carlisle has been consistently complimentary of World Peace in recent years.

While Carlisle might have been open to a reunion, the 33-year-old small forward -- who averaged 12.4 points per game last season and is no longer a dominant defender -- simply doesn’t fit into the Mavs’ plans.
