Knicks and Joakim Noah looking to part ways

  • The Knicks are

According to Shams Charania of The Vertical, Noah and head coach Jeff Hornacek got into it during practice recently, which has led to the Knicks looking into getting him out of NY. Now, with a glut of big men on current president Steve Mills and GM Scott Perry's roster, the 11-year veteran has appeared in only seven games this season, averaging 5.7 minutes, 1.7 points and 2.0 rebounds.

The hurdle: Noah isn't keen on giving back money to the Knicks in potential buyout discussions.

Noah was not at Monday's practice, according to the New York Daily News, and the team is still saying his absence is due to "personal reasons". He's now away from the team for what has been described as personal reasons.

Srinagar: Two civilians killed in security forces 'firing'
Two boys, Javed Ahmed Bhat and Suhail Javed Lone were killed by the Army when their convey was pelted with stones on Saturday. Seven Army personnel were also sustained injuries and eleven vehicles were damaged in the clash, the statement said.

But in light of recent events, the Knicks have made a decision to roll up their sleeves and get to work. Another unappealing option: the Knicks can waive Noah via the stretch exception after the season, which would cut New York's cap hit in half per year but spread it out over a longer period of time. As the Daily News reported, Noah shouted at Hornacek after being removed from last week's loss to the Warriors.

There's uncertainty about whether Noah will rejoin the team in NY this week, league sources said. It was a four-year, $72 million deal for a player who had suited up for just 29 games the previous season. GM Scott Perry said earlier in the season he did not want to do that, as he liked having Noah's veteran presence around.

Now, less than two full years into the deal, it's getting worse for the Knicks.

Arsenal will get Aubameyang… if BVB finds replacement
The transfer window will slam shut on January 31, and the saga looks set to rage on as we near the deadline. But it is reported that Arsenal have ruled out letting Giroud leave. "We have up to now refused them all".

If the Knicks have any chance of removing the contract from their books, they will need to package him with a quality asset, like an early draft pick or a talented young player.

While the organization would love to trade the 32-year-old before the February 8 deadline, it won't be easy to convince another team to take on more than $37 million over the next two years. If either O'Quinn or Kanter is traded, the coaching staff would likely give Hernangomez the opportunity to take the departing center's minutes, keeping Noah out of the regular rotation.
