Manny Pacquiao has expressed interest in recruiting former NBA All-Star Metta World Peace to the Filipino boxing champion’s newest venture — professional basketball.

Pacquiao has become player/coach of the newly formed Kia Sorentos in the Philippine Basketball Association, adding to his other careers as a world-champion boxer and local congressman. Local media this week quoted Pacquiao saying he intended to speak to the 34-year-old forward about joining the expansion team.

“We need a good import,” (Pacquiao) said. “If we get (Metta World Peace), that would be nice.”
