LAS VEGAS — Metta World Peace is free to come home — 14 years later.

World Peace is a free agent after clearing amnesty waivers last night, and the Knicks officially expressed interest to the agents of the former Ron Artest at the Las Vegas Summer League.

The Knicks are trying to schedule a meeting with World Peace in Las Vegas today or tomorrow. Agent Marc Cornstein said nothing is set in stone on the meeting yet, but said there’s “mutual interest.’’

World Peace, when asked if he’s coming to Vegas to sit down with the Knicks, responded via text message to The Post, “No, going to watch Floyd Mayweather train.”

Cornstein planned to speak with World Peace last night to go over his options.

Knicks coach Mike Woodson acknowledged the club likes what the Queensbridge product can bring.

“I like his skill set a lot,’’ Woodson said. “A lot of teams liked his skill set over the years. He does a little bit of everything.’’

According to a source, at least four teams have called to inquire about the 33-year-old, but the Knicks look to be the favorites, though World Peace hasn’t ruled out playing in China.

“It was a nail-biter and now he is in control of his destiny,’’ World Peace’s other New York-based agent, Doug Davis, told The Post. “We’re not rushing it. We want him to make a smart decision and take all the options in consideration and do what’s best for him. He’s very excited he’s in position to choose his own destiny.’’

World Peace told Yahoo! Sports he wants “to do something unique and fun.

“China has over a billion people. It’s fun,” he said. “I want to be adventurous. I’ve been thinking about it.”

Cornstein sat with Knicks general manager Glen Grunwald at UNLV’s Cox Pavilion, and the two had a brief conversation.

World Peace said a couple of days ago he was over his dream of playing with the Knicks — who passed on him in the 1999 draft — and had wanted to play with them in his prime, but no longer. Davis then downplayed those remarks as World Peace being World Peace. The Knicks have the $1.7 million remainder of their mid-level and the veterans’ minimum of $1.4 million to offer World Peace.

“There’s no reason not to consider New York if there’s strong interest,’’ Davis said.

Eleven under-the-cap teams passed on making bids for World Peace, but Davis said he still expects to hear from some of them.

“Ideally, teams showed respect so he can determine his own future,’’ Davis said.

Artest Sr. told The Post he’s praying the Knicks get it done. The Clippers also are believed in the mix.

“I’m hoping he comes home,’’ Artest Sr. said last night. “It’s New York. It’s home. He wanted to play here for a very long time. He doesn’t have to win a championship here but playing for the Knicks, that’s good enough for me.’’

Woodson has no qualms about coaching the mercurial World Peace, who has had his share of suspensions. Woodson has done a good job reining in J.R. Smith, also considered a league renegade.

“I can coach any player,’’ Woodson said. “I’ve coached guys from 18 years old and built a team in Atlanta. That’s tough for a first-time coach. I don’t think there’s a player who I can’t coach if he’s willing to be coached.

“It’s a matter of pushing the right buttons. If anybody comes to this team, they’ve got to understand it’s all about team and not about individuals here. It’s about the New York franchise trying to win an NBA title.”

If he signs, World Peace could start at small forward with Carmelo Anthony remaining at power forward. However, Woodson said he will consider starting Andrea Bargnani at power forward and shifting Anthony to the three.

“We could — it could be different this year,’’ Woodson said. “Bargnani brings a different dimension to our team. He can do a little bit of everything. I got to get him up to speed defensively. “ Just like Melo [Anthony] is a nightmare for people at the four, [Bargnani’s] a nightmare for players at the four and five. I’ve got to get him acclimated and comfortable and feeling good about himself.”

LAS VEGAS — On the day the Knicks added Metta World Peace, they lost J.R. Smith — possibly for all of training camp and the first two weeks of the regular season.

Four days after announcing his new four-year, $24.7 million package, Smith underwent surgery yesterday in New York to repair a patellar tendon and a torn meniscus, both in his left knee, putting him out three to four months.

The Knicks said Smith had two chronic injuries that gradually worsened. According to a league source, the tendon was chipped.

Smith, who will be 28 in September, certainly won’t be ready for Day 1 of training camp in early October and could miss the season opener later that month.

The Knicks knew about the issue when the season ended and knew Smith would need surgery. Earl Smith, J.R.’s father, claimed the surgery was timed for mid-July during summer league and it had no bearing on his son hiding his injury during free agency.

A source said teams that inquired about Smith were made aware of his impending surgery. The Knicks had no major qualms about offering him a four-year deal because they considered it below market value and the maximum they were allowed to offer under Early Bird Rights.

The Post reported exclusively on May 23 that Smith played during the Pacers series with an undisclosed left knee injury, with a source saying it was swollen with fluid buildup. The source said at the time, “He shouldn’t have even been playing.’’

Earl Smith said the timing of the surgery was due to it being most convenient for the Knicks’ medical and training staffs, which were to return to Las Vegas so there would be no lapse in his son’s rehab. If part of the preseason would be sacrificed, so be it.

“That was the plan all along,” the elder Smith said.

However, only one Knicks trainer is in Las Vegas, along with team medical director Dr. Lisa Callahan, so the timing still seems odd.

Earl Smith said he expects his son to be back for the season opener.

“Knowing J.R., he will be,’’ Earl Smith said. “It’s a great possibility.’’

Smith’s knee issue helps explain his downturn in the playoffs as the fluid likely was caused by the wear and tear of his cartilage. The Post reported Smith had played with varying degrees of knee pain since March, but he did not miss a single game because of injury. He played 80 of 82 games, resting the final two with the rest of the starters.

According to a source, Dr. Callahan told Smith he had the option of having surgery in March, but he opted to play through it.

Earl Smith said his son was greatly affected by the injury — not by rumored postseason partying.

“His knee was swollen in the playoffs,’’ the elder Smith said. “He didn’t have the lift on his jumper. You can tell something was wrong. They had him keeping late nights.’’

The NBA’s Sixth Man Award winner averaged 22 points on 48 percent shooting in the regular season’s final month, but shot 33 percent in the playoffs. The Post reported in late May that Smith would have a drainage procedure on his knee.

Ironically, Chris Smith, J.R.’s younger brother who is playing for the Knicks’ summer league team, is coming off a torn patellar tendon. Chris’ injury was more severe, according to a source.

* Knicks rookie shooting guard Tim Hardaway Jr., wearing a black brace on the bench, sat out yesterday’s loss to the Bobcats because of his sprained left wrist and may be done for the rest of the summer league schedule. He sprained the wrist late in the first quarter against the Wizards and sat out the rest of the game. Hardaway hopes to play when the Knicks resume action either tomorrow or Thursday in the playoff round.

“Doctors said not to play, I chose not to play and not risk anything,’’ Hardaway said. “I don’t know [about the next game]. It’s up to the doctors what I can do. We’ll be in therapy [today], see how it goes. I really want to get back out there. If it doesn’t happen, it doesn’t happen.’’

LAS VEGAS — Knicks rookie combo forward C.J. Leslie believes the addition of Metta World Peace will help his transition. Leslie scored 15 points — 6-of-15 from the field — in yesterday’s 84-71 summer-league loss to the Bobcats.

Leslie, who fell out of the draft in a stunner, plays roughly the same position of the former Ron Artest. Leslie feels he’ll bring “mentorship and a lot of leadership’’ to the club.

“I think he’s a better teammate than he is on the court at this stage,’’ Leslie told The Post. “I heard a lot about him from other players on the Lakers. He’s a good teammate. I’m looking forward to it.

“He’s been through this game and knows a lot,’’ Leslie added. “He’s going to play hard for us. You don’t have to question that. He’s a big, strong body down low.’’

The Knicks had Leslie pegged as a late first-rounder and feel they got two first-round players out of the draft, in the NC State product and Tim Hardaway Jr., who missed yesterday’s game with a sprained wrist.

In a continuing search for deeper point guard depth, the New York Knicks conducted a workout with free-agent guard Bobby Brown in Las Vegas on Tuesday, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.

Brown, 28, had a breakout season in the Euroleague and has been discussing a return to the NBA with several teams this summer.

The Knicks are considering Brown with one of their remaining veteran minimum slots, sources said. The Knicks need a third point guard to play behind Raymond Felton and Pablo Prigioni.

Brown averaged 18.8 points and 5.3 a.ssists the past season for Siena of Italy. His 41 points in January in a dramatic comeback victory over talented Fenerbahce of Turkey was the highest-scoring Euroleague performance in a decade.

Brown played limited roles for four NBA teams – Sacramento, Minnesota, New Orleans and the Los Angeles Clippers – beginning in 2008 before fully growing his game professionally in Europe over the past two years.

CHRIS HERRING

With the Knicks beginning to wrap up their summer, their team is finally taking shape.

They addressed one of their biggest needs—perimeter defense—by landing free agent Metta World Peace, whose signing became official Tuesday. And on paper, that deal gave the Knicks a formidable starting five—one that would allow World Peace to play small forward and let Carmelo Anthony stay at power forward, where he thrived last season.

One key question remains, though: Where does this leave Amar'e Stoudemire?

One by one, each Knick transaction this summer has de-emphasized the role of Stoudemire, 30, who has two seasons left on his five-year, $100 million contract.

There was the trade for Andrea Bargnani, who plays the same position and has the same limitations as Stoudemire—namely defense, rebounding and to some extent, health.

And while on the surface World Peace wouldn't appear to affect Stoudemire's role, there is a caveat. World Peace's ability to serve as a swingman—which allows Anthony to fill the power forward spot—leaves the frontcourt considerably more crowded than it was last season, when injuries afforded ample playing time to Stoudemire and a litany of other big men.

The exit of Steve Novak, who was traded for Bargnani, also figures to make life less easy for Stoudemire. He used a post game last year, and he was a force while on the court with the three-point specialist. He shot 69% at the rim in the 284 minutes he shared with Novak—up from the 55% he shot from there when Novak was on the sideline, per NBA.com.

If the Knicks have taken steps to rely less on the six-time All-Star, the reasoning is clear: They don't know what to expect from Stoudemire's fragile knees, which required separate surgeries and a minutes restriction last season. Also important: The Anthony-led Knicks have managed a far better record without Stoudemire (52-19) than with him (38-38) the past two seasons.

General manager Glen Grunwald played down the summer moves and any specific tie they might have to Stoudemire. "I don't think either Metta or Andrea necessarily impact his role," he said. "They're all good players, and good players will play. We think [Stoudemire] can be a key contributor for us."

None of this is to say Stoudemire hasn't performed when he has been healthy enough to play. He was incredibly productive on offense in the minutes he received. He shot 57.7% from the field, and was 11th in the league in scoring average (21.8 points) per 36 minutes.

Because of that, it'd be understandable if Stoudemire—who made the team relevant again when he signed on as a free agent back in 2010—wanted a bigger role. After all, last year he became only the third NBA player over the past 30 years, after Mehmet Okur (2010) and Kenyon Martin (2011), to start in every one of his games for five consecutive seasons, but not start in any during the sixth year, according to Stats LLC.

In a sign of how much has transpired lately, it is no longer clear whether Stoudemire—if he's a reserve—would get the nod as a sixth man even if J.R. Smith were to miss the start of the season to rehab his surgically repaired knee. World Peace and Bargnani each figure to get consideration for that spot, too.

Almost every scenario creates a conundrum. If Stoudemire starts, but is on a minute limitation, he'd probably be close to maxed out minutes-wise near the end of games.

And if he comes off the bench along with Bargnani, opposing teams would likely feast at the rim and on the glass. Both are subpar as lone rim protectors. And of the 58 players who stood 6 feet 11 or taller and logged 500 minutes last year, Stoudemire and Bargnani finished Nos. 51 and 58, respectively, in rebounding rate, according to Stats.

Simply put, there is no ideal fit or situation anymore. And perhaps that is why the Knicks have made the moves they have.

As speculation grows about Carmelo Anthony's opt-out for next summer, Glen Grunwald offered his perspective. More:

The Knicks won't be able to do anything about the rumors about what Melo may do and the effort the Lakers reportedly plan to make to lure him to LA until February. That's when they are clear to sign him to a contract extention.

Melo said after this past season that he plans on being in New York a long time, but that won't be a.ssured until he signs an extension. As we've seen with Dwight Howard (and, coincidentally, Melo in Denver), that's not necessarily as simple as it seems.

As you know, the Knicks can offer him the most years and money than any other team. The Lakers will have a ton of cap space and ESPN.com reported that their ambitious plan is to try to sign both Melo and LeBron James in 2014.

Kobe Bryant wants that sixth ring. That is one way to get it.

But what hasn't been discussed is that the Knicks will have cap space in 2015. Would Kobe come to New York (the Garden is one of his favorite places) to get ring No. 6?

First things first, Melo has to either commit to staying or entertain free agency, which he passed on in 2011 by signing an extension after his trade to the Knicks.

Grunwald will have that as Priority One once the regular season begins. On Tuesday, he discussed it on a conference call with reporters.

"We obviously love Melo," he said. "We see it being a long-term, successful partnership with him."

Do you agree with Grunwald?

Whether Knicks owner James Dolan has forever soured on Iman Shumpert is unsubstantiated. What is crystal clear is Knicks coach Mike Woodson preferred Iman Shumpert had played more than just one game in the Las Vegas summer league.

Shumpert arrived late and left early. The summer league was sandwiched between two non-Knick events. One was the basketball camp Shumpert runs in his hometown of Oak Park, Ill., which kids pay to attend. The second was an NBA-sponsored trip China to be a league ambassador.

The organization wanted to look at Shumpert at point guard, but didn’t get a long look. Starting at point guard alongside rookie Tim Hardaway Jr., Shumpert, playing with his high-top dyed blond in the front, was 0-for-5 from the field with four turnovers and four a.ssists in the summer-league opener last Friday.

Then it was Adios Las Vegas.

Woodson said upon Shumpert’s departure the Knicks combo guard had “a prior commitment,’’ referring to China. Woodson then gave a pointed critique of Shumpert’s offensive game, saying the Knicks coaches would work with him in earnest when he returned July 26 because he “has a long ways to go.’’

The Shumpert issue took an even more bizarre twist yesterday with a YouTube video that surfaced in which ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith made an off-the-cuff, off-the-air remark to Dwight Howard during a taping, indicating Dolan was unhappy with Shumpert’s summer league.

“And by the way, [James] Dolan was ready to trade [Shumpert] because he didn’t want to work out in the summer league,’’ Smith said to Howard, according to the videotape.

Smith added to Howard, “Dolan’s talking about trading him. I said, ‘Trade who? You better hold on to that boy. You better not lose Iman Shumpert.’ That boy can play.”

Smith addressed the video on his ESPN radio show yesterday and said he heard Dolan felt that way before the summer league began an doesn’t believe the Knicks owner still feels that way because Shumpert showed up in Las Vegas.

After Shumpert bolted town, Woodson said the guard needed to improve his offensive repertoire. With the possibility of J.R. Smith missing the start of the season because of knee surgery, the Knicks appear desperate for Shumpert to emerge as their secondary scorer while also dabbling at point guard.

The Knicks are still searching for a third point guard via free agency. Aaron Brooks, Sebastian Telfair and Euroleaguer Bobby Brown are on their radar but they may just roll the dice with summer league standout Toure Murry.

“We’re going to develop [Shumpert] as the summer goes along,’’ Woodson said. “There’s a lot of individual things he’s got to learn from a skill standpoint to better his game. He’s been good the last few years. He still has a ways to go in terms of things we expect him to do for us.

“He’s got to develop go-to moves where he can score the basketball and get shots,’’ Woodson added. “Defensively, I like everything about him. Offensively, he has to learn to play with the basketball, get players off and get and make shots for himself.’’

When Shumpert had a slow start upon his return last January, the Knicks were listening to trade offers, with Phoenix offering Jared Dudley. Shumpert had a strong finish to the season and it would seem highly unlikely they will trade him — unless it brings them Boston’s Rajon Rondo.

Shumpert said in Vegas he was not there against his will. Some fans were upset Shumpert was forced to play summer league, fearing he may reinjure his knee.

“I’m here with a smile,’’ Shumpert said. “I’m not here with angry eyes. I’m happy to be healthy.’’

Despite entering his third season, Shumpert had never played summer league. The lockout wiped out summer league when he was a rookie and he was rehabbing his ACL tear last July.

“I can get hurt working out by myself in the gym,’’ Shumpert said before the opener. “I’m not thinking about me getting hurt.’’

We might offer Brown a contract soon... I just want to know if Bobby Brown is better than Toure Murray... they should have both of them square up in training camp.

Also, Jeremy Tyler is coming to camp, and I think we should bring Terrence Jennings too to compete against him.

Imo, Shump did the right thing just playing just one game. I didn't expect him to play at all, coming of a torn acl. Knicks knees not looking all that good right now. Don't know about Murray as 3rd string point. He's not even a real pg plus doesn't have an outside shot as far as I'v seen in summer league games. I like this kid Tyler though, would be a nice addition, but knicks got a back up pg problem.
