Joakim Noah’s tenure in New York hasn’t exactly gone well. After signing a massive four-year, $72 million deal with the Knicks during the summer of 2016, Noah has turned into a shell of what he used to be as a player. In the year and a half that he’s suited up for the franchise, Noah has appeared in 53 total games for a myriad of reasons.
Basically, it’s hard to see anyone who thinks Noah’s contract was a good idea, and for a Knicks team that is trying to build around younger players and have an eye on the future, having him around is kind of unnecessary. The issue, of course, is that it’s hard to imagine any team that would take on his contract.
But in light of recent events, the Knicks have decided to roll up their sleeves and get to work. According to Shams Charania of The Vertical, Noah and head coach Jeff Hornacek got into it during practice recently, which has led to the Knicks looking into getting him out of New York.
