Recently heard rumblings that despite Joakim Noah reaching out to David fizdale, it's likely that he will be stretched by the Knicks.

Noah's tenure in New York is by far one of the worst in recent memory. He was basically ineffective the moment he arrived, became plagued by injuries, and finally let his overly public fued with Jeff hornacek fracture any trust that the organization might have still had in him.

Meanwhile the Knicks are probably going to tank this year. Porzingis might not even be back and whoever they take with their first round pick this year will be most likely looking at heavy minutes. Joakim Noah has become irrelevant in NYC but does that mean that he's done?

4 years ago this guy was all NBA first team and the defensive player of the year. Sure his post Chicago years have not been kind to him, but he was always an intelligent passer, a stout presence at the rim, and a capable help and switch Defender.

While at Florida he teamed up with Al Horford, and won back-to-back championships. Is this guy really done or could he be the final piece? One that not only gives Al Horford the type of rest he should end up needing going forward but could possibly even provide something special playing extended minutes with Horf. After all there might not be a player in the league with more built-in Horford chemistry aside from maybe Paul Millsap.

If Joakim Noah gets stretched would you take a flyer on him?

Noah is beyond cooked.  Not worth a 10-day contract.

I think he's cooked.

I'd invite him to training camp, but wouldn't offer him a guaranteed contract.

Noah is likely done being a productive NBA player. However if he is bought out he will be worth a look of Baynes can not be retained.

lol the words joakin noah and put us over the top should never be used in the same sentence.  stick a fork in him, the dude is done.  he went from energy big, to very good defensive big, to irrelevant over the course of his career and that's where he sits at right now.  i'd rather have Baynes back than Noah tbh.

Camp body / try out, sure! Slim chance he's playable, but I'll always take a look.

I think it’s interesting because of the Horford connection, and because Noah is young enough to have something left in the tank.

I just think his body is too badly broken.

I always liked Noah's intensity. If it was a minimum deal I'd be ok with it. He can probably still play reasonable bench minutes.

Still think Theis is a better backup big, and Noah isn't large enough to do what Baynes did for us last year.

Nice thought though!

At this stage I like what Theis brings to the table way more than Noah. Too broken down at this stage
