New York Knicks Considering Moving on from Veteran Joakim Noah
Joakim Noah’s time with the New York Knicks is coming to an end.
At this point, it is unlikely that the former All-Star will ever play another game with the franchise, despite a change in the coaching staff. The Knicks will look to use the NBA’s waive-and-stretch provision to release Noah after September 1, that is unless they can find a trade partner willing to take on the last two years of Noah’s $37.8-million contract.
Noah and the Knicks have not seen eye to eye since February following a heated argument between Noah and then head coach Jeff Hornacek.
Noah signed a four-year, $72-million deal with the Knicks back in 2016 while Phil Jackson was at the helm.
