The New York Knicks will soon face Joakim Noah for the time since leaving them.
The New York Knicks finally released center Joakim Noah earlier this season after he had a falling out with former head coach Jeff Hornacek last season.
Now ESPN NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that Noah is signing with the Memphis Grizzlies.
With the Knicks still paying Noah, he’s only signing a $1.73 million deal that is the veteran minimum.
Well, with this news, Noah will be back at Madison Square Garden with the Grizzlies on February 3rd.
So, will Knicks’ fans cheer or boo Noah?
I have no idea, but they can’t fault Noah for Phil Jackson giving him a contract that he didn’t deserve. Not to mention that the Knicks decided to shut him out after his incident with Hornacek.
Then again, Noah didn’t really help the Knicks much during his time in New York.
It will be interesting to see how Noah fits into the Grizzlies’ rotation and if he’ll even be healthy when Memphis visits the Big Apple given the fact that he’s had his fair share of injuries during his career.
Comment below and give us your thoughts on Noah signing with the Grizzlies.
