The New York Knicks have officially waived veteran center Joakim Noah, putting to bed one of the most ill-fated free-agent signings in recent National Basketball Association history.

In two forgettable seasons with New York, Noah suited up for just 53 games and averaged 4.6 points, 7.9 rebounds, and 2.0 assists in roughly 20 minutes per game.

Per ESPN's report, the Knicks will use the stretch provision, allowing them to spread the money they owe Noah in his final season over three years.


According to a report from ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Ian Begley, shortly before the news was officially announced, Noah had been resistant to a buyout because there are no teams expected to add him to their rosters. They will be playing Noah $6.4 million a year until 2022, however. The pact quickly proved disastrous, however, as Noah has played a total of 53 games with NY - including just seven appearances last season - averaging 4.6 points and 7.9 rebounds in just under 20 minutes per game overall.

Noah spent the first nine seasons of his career with the Chicago Bulls, where he developed into a two-time All-Star and an All-NBA defender.
