It looks like Joakim Noah is following Derrick Rose to the New York Knicks, after agreeing to a four-year, $72 million deal.
According to ESPN, Knicks president Phil Jackson, GM Steve Mills, coach Jeff Hornacek and others met with Noah in Orlando on Friday night (July 1)… and ultimately reached an agreement.
After nabbing Rose last week, a top priority for the Knicks was a center, after sending Robin Lopez to Chicago in the trade… and free agent Noah fit the bill.
Following Noah’s deal, New York will have have, at least, $12 million in remaining cap space to fill up the roster. Next on the list for the team is a shooting guard.
There were talks that talks were “intensifying” with free agent Dwyane Wade, after being frustrated with the situation in Miami. It’s unclear how that will play out now, following Noah’s agreement. Stay tuned…
