Noah, Knicks reach agreement, parting ways

Joakim Noah and the Knicks have finally brought their relationship to an end following a disappointing two-year run.

It’s finally over. Joakim Noah and the New York Knicks are finally parting ways.

According to Shams Charania of Stadium, Noah and the Knicks have agreed on a “waive and stretch” agreement that will be executed before Monday, making Noah a free agent.

The Knicks host media day Monday and begin training camp Tuesday.

The latest developments bring an end to a disappointing run for Noah and the Knicks. It began after Noah signed a four-year, $72 million contract with the Knicks in 2016.┬áThe Knicks have tried mightily to figure out a way to part ways since about the start of last season. Noah’s 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.

According to Charania, “Noah has worked diligently this offseason, and several teams are monitoring his upcoming entrance in free agency.”
