Knicks waive Joakim Noah af­ter 2 sea­sons

The Record (Troy, NY) - - SPORTS -

NEWYORK >> Joakim Noah’s dis­ap­point­ing Knicks ca­reer is over af­ter just two sea­sons.

Un­able to find a trade, the Knicks waived the 33-year-old cen­ter Satur­day with two years and $37.8 mil­lion re­main­ing on his con­tract.

Noah had been away from the team since clash­ing with for­mer coach Jeff Hor­nacek last sea­son, when he ap­peared in just seven games. The Knicks had al­ready de­cided he wouldn’t re­join the club un­der new coach David Fiz­dale but were hop­ing they could find a long shot trade to get some­thing back for him without hav­ing to cut him.

The New York na­tive signed with his home­town team in 2016 and drew a loud ova­tion in his first ap­pear­ance at Madi­son Square Gar­den, where he was in­tro­duced as be­ing from the Hell’s Kitchen sec­tion of the city, rather than from Florida, the team he helped win two NCAA cham­pi­onships.
