The Scoop: MWP struggled to earn minutes under Knicks coach Mike Woodson last season, and he wasn't picked up after being waived by New York in February. He'd undoubtedly be a popular figure in China if he does sign with the Blue Whales, but we've learned not to assume anything until Metta signs on the dotted line -- before signing with the Knicks last summer, he said that he might retire, play in China, or coach in the Arena Football League.
