Knicks exploring options to part with Joakim Noah

The New York Knicks reportedly are trying to part ways with the veteran center following his recent argument with head coach Jeff Hornacek, Yahoo! "He had a 'heated verbal exchange" with coach Jeff Hornacek last week and is now away from the team for "personal reasons".

Noah, 32, signed a largely untradeable four-year, $72 million contract in the summer of 2016, when Phil Jackson was the Knicks president.

After appearing in just 46 games last season, Noah has managed to make it into just seven games during the 2017-18 campaign.

"According to two people with knowledge of the situation, Noah's playing time in Tuesday's loss against the Golden State Warriors at Oracle Arena is at the root of the friction", wrote Amick.

The officially stated reason for Noah's absence from the Knicks' last two games was "personal reasons". The Knicks are not giving any indication of when, or if, Noah will return.

In addition to the resignations, Blackmun's email stated an interim board must be in place by February 28 and then in turn replaced within 12 months.

Noah, 33 next month, was not at Monday's practice and past reports said the Knicks expected him to rejoin the team in Milwaukee Thursday.

There was a time when any team in the league would have loved to have Joakim Noah on their roster.

Noah is one of the most decorated centers of his generation. Such an agreement wouldn't change the cap hit the Knicks incur on the remaining years of Noah's deal.

Of course, the Knicks would like to get out of Noah's contract.

Basically, it's hard to see anyone who thinks Noah's contract was a good idea, and for a Knicks team that is trying to build around younger players and have an eye on the future, having him around is kind of unnecessary.

With their prices sky-rocketing, the two players' original franchises RCB and KKR didn't use their Right To Match (RTM) cards. Stokes has been struck with controversies of late and was dropped from the England Ashes squad following a pub brawl.

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.

Noah has fallen from grace in NY, however, and is now being excluded from a rotation that features Enes Kanter and Kyle O'Quinn in center.

Waive:?The Knicks could choose to waive Noah, though they'd likely attempt to negotiate a buyout before exploring this option.

Noah served 12 games of that suspension to start this season.
