Metta World Peace says he is fine with a possible reserve role on the New York Knicks this season, if Mike Woodson believes that would be best for the team.

"I mean, I came off the bench when I was in Houston, they tried it. I had to start later because I had to get us out of the first round. And then I came off the bench when I was in L.A. and they tried it and then I had to start," World Peace said. "So I don't have an issue with coming off the bench. I've been starting for 15 years, so hey, it should be somebody else's chance to start.

"I've been starting for 15 years. I could've went to any other team I wanted to and started. I got calls from Oklahoma (City) and the Clippers, all these teams, but I came here and it wasn't to start, it was to win a ring."

World Peace started 66 of 75 games played last season.
