Metta World Peace said he knew going to New York would be “an adventure’’ and it is living up to the billing.

The Queensbridge product has not only found himself out of the rotation but has found himself mentioned in trade talks that could send him to Toronto in a package for point guard Kyle Lowry. Sunday is when he can be traded under NBA bylaws regarding free agents who signed over the summer.

World Peace played 11 seconds in Friday’s 90-86 loss in Boston.

“Actually the reason I came to New York is because I wanted to try to win a ring in New York,’’ World Peace said. “That was the only reason. That’s my goal. My goal never changes. It was a risky goal. I didn’t weigh all my options. I didn’t weigh nothing. It was a challenge. That said, I’m ready for whatever is presented.’’

World Peace had spent his whole career wondering if he ever would get to be a Knick. But the general manager who signed him, Glen Grunwald, was fired four days before training camp.

“There’s nothing to deal with,’’ World Peace said of the trade reports. “It’s like, ‘What am I dealing with? I’m getting paid to play basketball.’ Some guys take trade rumors more personal. What am I dealing with? I work hard. I still can play. I love challenges.

All the teams that called me, I wanted an adventure — China, Knicks, Arena Football. This is an adventure. This is good. You have to be ready for the unpredictable. I’m glad I can go through unpredictable situations.’’

Asked how tough it would be to go to a rebuilding situation in Toronto, the former Ron Artest said: “Whatever team I’m on, you’re never rebuilding. When you get Metta World, you’re officially a championship mentality when you get World Peace. Talking about the division, I heard that a lot. But that’s not Metta World. He brings championship [hopes]. That’s what I do.’’

World Peace started in Cleveland on Tuesday, but when Kenyon Martin returned, he was a DNP Wednesday in the win over the Bulls. He has been out of the rotation in three of the last four games.

“The team is stacked,’’ World Peace said. “I knew coming into the season, it wasn’t going to be the same but I was ready.’’
