The 6-foot-11, 228-pound Noel played in only 30 games last season with the Dallas Mavericks, starting six.
In 15.7 minutes, he averaged 4.4 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.0 steals in 15.7 minutes per game.
Noel turned down a four-year, $70-million contract offer last season from the Mavericks.
Noel missed three months of the season because of a thumb injury and was then suspended for the final five games of the season for violating terms of the NBA/NBPA Anti-Drug Program.
Noel, a four-year veteran, carries career averages of 9.3 points, 7.2 rebounds, 1.4 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.4 blocked shots per game.
He is a career 51.2-percent shooter.
