Knicks of­fi­cially waive Noah af­ter 2 sea­sons

Sunday Star - - SPORTS -

NEW YORK (TNS) — The Knicks sev­ered ties with Joakim Noah on Satur­day af­ter­noon, an­nounc­ing they have waived the former Al­lS­tar af­ter two dis­ap­point­ing sea­sons.

A source told the Daily News that Noah was waived out­right, mean­ing he gave up no money in a buy­out.

The 33-year-old has been away from the Knicks since Jan­uary, when he and former coach Jeff Hor­nacek got into a heated al­ter­ca­tion at prac­tice. As it turned out, that mo­ment sym­bol­ized the end of Noah’s Knicks ca­reer.

Noah signed a four-year, $72 mil­lion deal in 2016 and he leaves with $38 mil­lion of that re­main­ing. The Knicks will be pay­ing Noah $6.4 mil­lion an­nu­ally un­til 2022.

Noah to­taled 53 games over two sea­sons with the Knicks, av­er­ag­ing fewer than five points. He had two surg­eries and a 20-game PED sus­pen­sion.
