Daniel Artest, Metta World Peace’s brother who had a brief professional career, told The Post the Knicks were missing a certain element last season — “a goon.’’ He feels his brother can fill the bill.

The Knicks got beat — and beat up — by the Pacers last May in the playoffs. And they signed World Peace partly with the rugged Pacers in mind.

“They’ve got a good team but they never had that goon — that defensive goon last season,’’ Daniel told The Post yesterday from his home in Indianapolis. “Someone that’s not afraid. If Ron was on the team, they would have gotten past the Pacers.’’

The former Ron Artest is renowned as one of the league’s all-time most physical players, and that has gotten him in trouble. He was suspended 73 games for the infamous “Malice at the Palace” brawl when he played for Indiana. He’d probably like to shed some of that image.

“I’m not worried [he’s washed up],’’ Daniel said. “It’s all about heart. The way Ron plays, he will help the Knicks out the way he plays defense and take pressure off Carmelo [Anthony], [who] won’t have to guard the best forward guy anymore. [World Peace] can guard the power forward. He held a lot of power forwards like Zach Randolph, David West and LaMarcus [Aldridge] last season way below their scoring average. He’s still very strong and has a lot of game left.’’

Daniel Artest doesn’t mince words when he describes his brother’s physical game. Daniel wore No. 51 at South Nevada Community College in honor of his father, who wore the number in high school at Long Island City. Daniel didn’t play high school ball because he periodically dropped out.

It was at Daniel’s suggestion that World Peace wear 51 for the Knicks. When asked to describe his own game, Daniel said, “I’m the non-NBA version of Ron. I play tough, emotional, and I’m dirty, too.’’

The younger Daniel, 6-foot-5 and 275 pounds, didn’t follow his brother’s NBA path. He did play on the Kings’ summer league team in 2007 and tried out with the Lakers in 2009. He also had a stint in Germany and played in a minor league, the ABA, with Kentucky, Atlanta and Indianapolis.

Daniel still communicates with World Peace virtually every day and claims his brother’s first choice was to play with the Clippers for family reasons after being waived by the Lakers.

“The Clippers were his first choice,” Daniel said. “He loves L.A. and wanted to stay. But the Clippers had their team ready. The Knicks were the other option.’’

“I think it’s awesome. He gets to go back home to finish his career where it started. He’s beloved in New York. Everyone I’ve ever spoken to always said they wanted him to go to the Knicks. He’s putting in all the work this summer to keep Knicks fans happy. They can love you one day and be against you the next if you don’t perform.’’

Daniel has been an ardent Spurs fan since he was 10 and tried to orchestrate his brother to San Antonio. Their father, Ron Artest Sr., was in the Navy and always trumped up Spurs legend David Robinson. And Daniel knew fellow New Yorker Lloyd Daniels, who wound up in San Antonio.

Daniel said Spurs coach Gregg Popovich expressed interest in his brother during the playoffs.

“I finally met Popovich, told him I was a big Spurs fan and he said he always liked Ron on his team,’’ Daniel said. “I relayed the message, tried to convince [World Peace], but my brother didn’t believe me.’’

As it was, Daniel feels his brother was miscast by Lakers coach Mike D’Antoni.

“Personally, I don’t think D’Antoni used him right,’’ Daniel said. “He should have posted him up more and catered to Dwight [Howard]. They were running and running. Nobody was happy there. That’s why they had the season they had.’’

Will World Peace fit in with Knicks coach Mike Woodson?

“He’s a defensive coach,’’ Daniel said. “He always talks defense first. And he’s never had enough guys like Metta on his team.’’

All it took was one report and one legacy, one dynasty. Someone says the Lakers want to nab Carmelo Anthony in the summer of 2014, says they could have up to $50 million in cap space, and someone else says Kobe and ‘Melo are best buds, says this is the Lakers, they get who they want when they want. Did we all forget Anthony currently plays in New York City? The big-city Knicks aren’t letting their franchise player bolt without a f!ght, and they’re offering him what Miami offered Dwyane Wade before the titanic summer of 2010: the chance to pick his future teammates.

That summer, Wade courted his hometown Chicago Bulls, armed with Derrick Rose, cap space and a plethora of solid backup singers yearning for a star. In the end, Miami’s adopted son stayed with the Heat, then brought Chris Bosh and eventually LeBron James along with him.

Like the rest of the NBA, Anthony surely hasn’t forgotten that summer, and HOOPSWORLD reports the Knicks have already hit the NBA’s leading scorer with their pitch:

On the Anthony front, there is a chance he looks at greener pastures in 2014, but sources close to the process say the Knicks have already let Anthony know that their books will be basically clear in 2015 and he can pick his teammates much as Wade did in Miami.

With the New York market behind him and the almost unlimited checkbook of the Knicks, Anthony will have a lot of options in 2015 and while teams like the Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers might be tempting in 2014, Anthony has a lot of influence in New York and they are willing to let him build his own team in NYC in 2015

By 2015, the massive contracts of Amar’e Stoudemire, Tyson Chandler and Andrea Bargnani are all off the books. J.R. Smith and Raymond Felton have modest player options for 2015-16 totaling a little more than $10 million. Pablo Prigioni‘s $1.7 million is non-guaranteed. Iman Shumpert and Tim Hardaway Jr. could still be on their rookie deals (C.J. Leslie as well). The cupboard is clear. The Knicks can make a splash.

It’s a hard sell, asking a star player in his prime to wait. But as HOOPSWORLD points out, there’s a good chance both ‘Melo and LeBron stay where they are next summer, turning what could be a monster free agency offseason into just an appetizer featuring dishes like Chris Bosh, Rudy Gay and possibly Brandon Jennings.

What will ‘Melo do next summer?

While Carmelo Anthony praised the Knicks offseason moves, saying the Andrea Bargnani trade was a “steal for us,’’ he stopped short of predicting he and the Knicks would have a long marriage.

Anthony can opt out of his contract after the 2013-14 season, so the Knicks’ success in the coming season could be pivotal to whether he re-signs or looks for greener, warmer pastures — perhaps in Los Angeles. The Lakers already are eyeing an Anthony/LeBron James tandem with their cap space.

When asked if this season was major for him in terms of making a decision, Anthony demurred.

“I can’t do that,’’ he told ESPN.com while coaching at his summer basketball camp in Las Vegas. “It’s too tough right now.

“It’s a big year,” said Anthony, who just came back from China for his Jordan Brand trip. “A huge upcoming season for me, as a team and as an organization.”

It could be a bigger year for the Nets, and Anthony gave them more lavish praise for their offseason moves, calling it “special.’’

The Nets are widely considered having surpassed the defending Atlantic Division-champion Knicks because of their summer additions of Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce, Jason Terry and Andre Kirilenko.

“We’ll see whether we have enough,” Anthony said. “We haven’t even stepped on the court yet.

“It’s special what [the Nets) did,” Anthony added. “J-Kidd [Jason] will have four or five future Hall of Famers. I played with him for a year and also with USA Basketball and I know his mentality. He knows the game. It won’t be hard for him to deal with those guys because he’ll put them in position and only have to tell them things one time.’’

Knicks general manager Glen Grunwald said this month he expected Anthony to re-sign, and Anthony said in China he “doubts it’’ when asked if he will be a Laker in 2014-15.

“We obviously love Carmelo,’’ Grunwald said. “We think he’s great for New York and New York is great for him. We see a long-term successful partnership with him as we go forward.’’

The Post reported soon after the season ended Anthony hoped the Knicks would add a secondary scorer to help him. Maybe the big Italian, Bargnani, who is training with Italy’s National Team, becomes that guy.

“I’ve been staying under the radar,” Anthony said. “I let them do what they do. We got [Metta World Peace], and I think Bargnani was really a steal for us. He’ll help us spread the floor. We got J.R. [Smith] back and we kept the core guys together.”

* John Baker, the agent for 6-foot-11 center/power forward Jeremy Tyler, said he believes his client will be at the team’s training camp.

The Knicks are desperate for a backup center to Tyson Chandler after shipping out Marcus Camby.

Tyler excelled at the Vegas summer league as the team’s starting power forward.

“From all indications, they want him in training camp but no formal negotiations have taken place,’’ Baker said.

Tyler said in Las Vegas the Knicks were his favorite team growing up in San Diego.

“Who wouldn’t want to be a Knick?,’’ Baker said.

Tyler is expected to receive a partially guaranteed minimum contract. He jumped from high school to Israel and the Philippines before playing last season for Golden State and Atlanta. The Knicks have three open roster spots and are trying to sign a third point guard.

The Knicks have had "conversations" with representatives for free-agent guard Delonte West, a league source confirmed. The team has not offered West a contract and, the source cautioned, there is no guarantee that an offer is coming.

The Knicks have three open roster spots, so they have room to bring West in, if they choose. GM Glen Grunwald said recently that the team is open to adding a backup guard and a big man. West could fill the void at backup guard.

The talented but troubled 30-year-old last played in the NBA in 2011-12. He suited up in eight games for the Texas Legends, the Dallas Mavericks' D-League affiliate, in 2012-13, averaging 10 points on 35 percent shooting.

The conversations between West's representatives and the Knicks, which were first reported by CSNNW.com, are believed to be preliminary.

In addition to West, the Knicks have shown interest in other young guards to fill their void on the bench. New York was impressed by the play of Toure' Murry in the summer league and has extended a training camp invite to the former D-Leaguer. They also have reportedly shown interest in Bobby Brown. Grunwald has said that he may leave one or two roster spots open to give a training camp invitee the chance to earn a spot, leaving open the possibility for a player like Murry to earn a roster spot with a strong performance in camp.

New York is also said to be in the market for a backup big man to spell Tyson Chandler. The Knicks were impressed by the play of 6-foot-10 big man Jeremy Tyler during summer league. Tyler told reporters in Las Vegas that the Knicks have extended a training camp offer to him.

A league source familiar with the team's thinking said late last week that the Knicks are "standing pat" in the free-agent market for the moment.

If the Knicks choose to add West, it wouldn't be without risk. They'd be bringing in a player who was released by the Mavericks after two locker-room incidents at the beginning of the 2011-12 season. Also, there is no guarantee that West can play at the level he showed two years ago.

Those are factors that the Knicks would have to weigh if they decided to offer West a contract.

The Knicks have decided rest is more important for Amar’e Stoudemire than “The Dream Shake’’ and wisdom of Hakeem Olajuwon.

Stoudemire will not return to the Olajuwon camp in Houston to work on his post moves again this month as had been planned, The Post has learned.

Stoudemire had planned to return to Texas to refine the post moves he learned last summer. That Olajuwon is about to be named to the Rockets staff as instructor for Dwight Howard and Omar Asik is not a factor in Stoudemire not attending.

According to a Rockets source, Houston is allowing Olajuwon to fulfill any of his prior commitments with opposing players this month before he exclusively works with Rockets big men. Hence, Stoudemire might never work with Olajuwon again.

Nevertheless, there’s still a chance forward Carmelo Anthony will fulfill his plans and work on his post moves with Olajuwon after being switched to power forward last season. But Amar’e will be a no-show.

Knicks doctors are treating their $100 million investment with heavy caution after two knee debridement surgeries last season marred his 2012-13 campaign, reducing him to 29 regular-season games. Stoudemire made his second comeback in the middle of the playoff’s second round and his rustiness hurt team chemistry in the Pacers’ debacle.

The Post reported exclusively Knicks medical director Lisa Callahan has discussed putting Stoudemire on a 20-minute restriction with the possibility of not playing in back-to-back games.

Knicks coach Mike Woodson said last month the plan was for Stoudemire this summer, but he never said Stoudemire wouldn’t make it to Olajuwon’s camp. It was Woodson’s idea last summer for Stoudemire to add a low-post element and work with the coach’s former Houston teammate.

Stoudemire has been touring Israel since mid-July, exploring his Jewish roots after coaching Canada in the Maccabiah Games .

“The main thing with Amar’e is we need him to rest,’’ Woodson said at the Las Vegas summer league. “Last summer, he put in a lot of time. He had some bad luck because he worked his butt off last summer. This summer we’ll rest him and make our push to get him ready for vet camp.”

Knicks general manager Glen Grunwald echoed the need for Stoudemire to slow down. Last October, he broke down in training camp.

“He really worked hard in last offseason, maybe too hard,’’ Grunwald said. “We need to pace him and have him ready for the season so when the real games and playoffs begin, he’s there for us. We’re hopefully a little smarter this year and understand where his body is at.’’

Grunwald added he still felt Stoudemire could play at a high level, even in his reduced role.

“Amar’e can definitely return to All-Star level play,’’ Grunwald said. “If we’re going to be a championship team, every player has to make some sacrifices and take the role that gives us the best chance to win. I’m not going to predict but Amar’e can certainly come back to All-Star status. He has the talent.’’

Olajuwon said he was looking forward to Stoudemire’s return to his camp because he was very enthusiastic pupil last August.

“He put in so much work, was excited and so confident,” Olajuwon said. “To see he didn’t get a chance to really show it, I felt very bad for him.’’

* Marc Cornstein, the agent for free-agent point guard Beno Udrih, told The Post five teams are still in the mix for his client’s services.

The Knicks appear long shots because they only have the $1.4 millon veteran’s minimum to offer.

“If he signs with the Knicks the reasons will not be because of the money,’’ Cornstein said. “It would be a disservice to say they’re long shots or favorites. He’s examining the situations.’’

Amid their search for a young big man who could provide interior scoring, rebounding and defense, the Knicks are having discussions with free agent Ivan Johnson, a player source told ESPNNewYork.com.

The 29-year-old Johnson, who became an NBA player in 2011 and has played for the Hawks, was initially campaigning for a mini mid-level contract. But with remaining attractive free agents like DeJuan Blair and Antawn Jamison in the veteran's minimum financial ballpark -- Blair signed with the Mavericks for that amount -- the free-agent market is quickly changing.

"I think the mini mid-level will be tough to get at this time," the source said.

So it's likely that the 6-8, 255-pound Johnson will be financially accessible to the Knicks. The question is: could it mutually work out?

The source said, "I think it would be a great fit for Ivan to get big minutes [in New York] and further prove he can play in this league."

Johnson is known for his high motor, finishing ability and being a tenacious defender, who has good hands and timing to deflect balls and grab rebounds. Sometimes, however, he can be a little out of control. In 2012, the Hawks fined him for "conduct detrimental to the team" and later for making an obscene gesture.

Johnson could bring versatility to the Knicks' frontcourt. Carmelo Anthony is still mostly an outside facilitator even when he's at the 4 position; Amar'e Stoudemire will play limited minutes because of his surgically-repaired knees; Tyson Chandler missed 16 games last season and is now one year older and needs more support; Andrea Bargnani only played 66 games in his past two injury-riddled seasons; and Kenyon Martin has had serious injury issues in the past and he's turning 36 this December.

Johnson can play forward and center, which would fill a need for the Knicks.

"That would be a nice get for the Knicks," another source said. "I like him."

Another big man the Knicks had "strong interest" in, according to a player source, was Kris Humphries -- if the Celtics carried out their potential plan to buy him out. Humphries was also interested in playing for the veteran's minimum in New York. But a source familiar with Humphries said a buyout is unlikely at this point, as the Celtics, who acquired Humphries in the Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry trade this summer, envision a key role for him next season.

Other bigs on the Knicks' radar include (via sources): Cole Aldrich, Hamed Haddadi, Jerome Jordan, Gani Lawal, Shavlik Randolph, who was waived by the Celtics on Thursday, and Henry Sims. Jeremy Tyler, who played on the Knicks' summer league team, has received a training camp invite.

JANNERO PARGO IN THE PICTURE: According to a player source, the Knicks are now in conversations with Pargo, a veteran point guard who played for the Wizards, Hawks and Bobcats last season.

Pargo, 33, is known for his transition playmaking and spot-up shooting, but he's not great at getting in the lane and creating his own shot. However, he works well off of pick-and-rolls, and his court vision and quick reaction time enable him to see passing lanes through traps.

The Knicks also remain interested in point guards Beno Udrih and Bobby Brown, according to a source familiar with the Knicks' thinking. The Knicks have until Aug. 15 to decide on an offer for Brown, who has an opt-clause on that date in his upcoming contract with Chinese basketball club Dongguan. Regarding Delonte West, he's unlikely to be considered, according to a player source.

The Knicks will also invite Toure Murry and "a few young developmental point guards to training camp," according to a source.

Looking ahead, the Knicks have three roster spots remaining, so even if they sign a free agent soon training camp invites, such as Murry and Tyler, could still receive guaranteed contracts at the minimum.

Agent Marc Cornstein said he believes about five teams still have interest in PG Beno Udrih, including #Knicks. Are #Knicks longshots because they only have the $1.4M veteran's minimum to offer? Probably, though Cornstein won't say. “If he signs with the Knicks the reasons will not be because of the money,’’ Cornstein told me. “It would be a disservice to say they’re long shots or favorites. He’s examining the situations.’’ Knicks have been outbid for point guards all summer. Udrih made $7M last season and hear he's all about the money. Don't bank on this signing. Cornstein is long past wanting to shuttle guys to New York, where he is based, though he did get Metta World Peace here.
