- Report: Hornacek shoved Noah during altercation - February 18, 2018
New York Knicks center Joakim Noah has left the team indefinitely for what the club has called “personal reasons’’ and the veteran big man may not return until next week, according to a report from The New York Post.
Noah is unhappy with his role on the Knicks and was frustrated with head coach Jeff Hornacek on Tuesday after only playing 4:31 in the 4th quarter against the Golden State Warriors.
Noah was “pissed,” according to The Post, because both Kristaps Porzingis and Kyle O’Quinn sat out and felt he deserved more playing time.
The Knicks have ramped up their efforts to trade Noah but the 32-year-old has one of the NBA’s most untradeable contracts. Noah signed a four-year, $72 million free agent deal with the Knicks last offseason.
New York refuses to part with any draft picks, making it even more difficult to find a suitor for Noah.
