If the Lakers are flirting with the idea of signing Metta World Peace, it's definitely a surprise to him.
Earlier this week, NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski reported that the Lakers have been talking with Metta's reps about a possible comeback ... though no official deal was on the table.
But when we asked Metta about the report in Hollywood last night, he told us he hadn't heard anything about that.
That being said, Metta said he's "absolutely" down to rejoin the Lake Show if Jeanie Buss wants him back -- insisting he's still ready to compete in the NBA because "basketball is easy."
Yeah, tell that to the Knicks ...
