Metta World Peace will be back with the Lakers and Thomas Robinson has signed on.

This according to the latest from Yahoo Sports, which tweeted Wednesday about the two free-agent signings.

World Peace, 36, is being brought back to a relatively young Lakers squad, presumably to add some toughness. The 6-foot-7 forward played 35 games for the Lakers last season and averaged 5.0 points and 2.5 rebounds.

Robinson, 25, is a 6-8 combo forward. He spent 70 games with the Nets last season, averaging 4.3 points and 3.1 rebounds. The Lakers are his sixth team.
