The New York Knicks will make a roster move before Joakim Noah’s 12-game suspension ends this weekend, general manager Scott Perry told reporters.
“We know that is looming,’’ Perry said. “We’re going to have to address the roster. We’ve been working through the process for a few weeks. By Sunday at 5 p.m., there’ll be a resolution one way or another. Whether it’s a trade or waive an individual.’’
According to the New York Post, “Mindaugas Kuzminskas’ agents have gauged interest around the league for a trade as the Lithuanian forward appeared to be on the outs.”
The Knicks could also make a move involving veteran point guard Ramon Sessions, who has seen his time reduced during the Knicks’ current upswing, in which they’ve won six of eight games.
However, Perry didn’t want to single out any possibilities.
“I think it would be unfair for me to comment about any guy as it relates to if he’s going to be here or not,’’ Perry said. “What I will say about Ramon, Ramon is a true professional. The guy is a pro. He goes about his business the same way every day whether he’s playing or not playing. That sets a fine example.”
Noah was suspended by the league for use of a banned substance.
