After practice incident, Knicks exploring ways to part with Joakim Noah

  • Joakim Noah

The veteran forward and Knicks head coach Jeff Hornacek had at least one heated argument that led to Noah's indefinite leave, . It is one more remnant of the disastrous reign of Phil Jackson, who signed Noah for four years at $72 million. In the time that Noah did play a year ago, he averaged five points, 8.8 rebounds and 2.2 assists over 22.1 minutes per game while shooting 49 percent from the floor and 43.6 percent from the free-throw line.

"According to two people with knowledge of the situation, Noah's playing time in Tuesday's loss against the Golden State Warriors at Oracle Arena is at the root of the friction", wrote Amick.

There's uncertainty about whether Noah will rejoin the team in NY this week, league sources said. If the Knicks were to find a team to take Noah, they likely would have to take back another bad contract.

But in light of recent events, the Knicks have made a decision to roll up their sleeves and get to work.

Trading Noah will be no easy feat for the Knicks.

There was a time when any team in the league would have loved to have Joakim Noah on their roster.

There's uncertainty about whether Noah will rejoin the team in NY this week, league sources said.

ESPN reported Noah has no desire in a buyout.

"From Noah's view, this was a far cry from the plan that had been discussed - not to mention a disrespectful way to treat a veteran who hadn't played in the previous 10 games."
Such an agreement wouldn't change the cap hit the Knicks incur on the remaining years of Noah's deal.

While the organization would love to trade the 32-year-old before the February 8 deadline, it won't be easy to convince another team to take on more than $37 million over the next two years. He was serving a 20-game suspension for the first 12 games this season for the use of a banned substance. He's been the Knicks' fourth-string center behind Enes Kanter, Kyle O'Quinn and Willy Hernangomez.

If the Knicks have any chance of removing the contract from their books, they will need to package him with a quality asset, like an early draft pick or a talented young player.
