Knicks talking with Noah reps daily for resolution

Former Knicks center Joakim Noah has signed on with the Grizzlies and will join the team next week.

The New York Knicks are still trying to reach a resolution, and an end, to their relationship with center Joakim Noah.

According to a report from Chris Mannix of Yahoo Sports, Knicks general manager Scott Perry has been in constant contact with Noah’s representatives. The Knicks are hopeful of trading Noah, but are more likely to have to waive him and “stretch” his contract over several seasons.

Whatever happens or however it’s done, the Knicks are very clearly hoping to part ways with Noah before the season.

He appeared in just seven games last season and has basically bombed since signing a four-year, $72 million contract with the Knicks in 2016. The Knicks have tried mightily to figure out a way to part ways since about the middle of last season. His finest years came earlier this decade as a member of the Chicago Bulls.

Noah, 33, is 6-foot-11 and was drafted by the Bulls with the ninth overall pick in 2007.
