  • The Knicks have a Joakim Noah dilemma. Why are they trying to rush

According to Reuters, the Knicks front office is looking to use a little-known provision known as "waive-and-stretch" to part ways with Noah.

"If the Knicks can't find a taker for Joakim Noah, 33, the league's 2014 defensive player of the year, or can't get him to agree to a buyout, which was a plan met with resistance in the past, the team likely will use the waive and stretch provision to dump the veteran in September, league sources confirmed Wednesday", Fred Kerber of the New York Post reported.

After the hiring of David Fizdale in June, Knicks management didn't rule out the possibility of Noah rejoining the organization for the 2018-19 season, but that scenario has gained no traction, league sources said.

Les enfants se trouvaient dans "les pires conditions de vie et de pauvreté que j'aie jamais vues ", a confié un officier . Le petit garçon aurait apparemment séjourné dans ce taudis quelques semaines avant l'intervention de la police.

In doing so, the team would still have to pay Noah because he has compensation protection in his deal, but they could lessen the cap hit on the team's salary by stretching his deal out.

Noah and the Knicks separated in February following a heated argument between Noah and ex-coach Jeff Hornacek. Noah became vociferous toward Hornacek in the aftermath of a brief appearance in a January 23 game and engaged the coach verbally in practice the next day. A weighty one at that - the last two years of the four-year, $72 million deal Noah signed during the summer of 2016, when free agency was a bacchanalia where money flowed liberally from National Basketball Association teams to players. He played 46 games in the 2016-17 season, losing time to various injuries and an arthroscopic surgery on his left knee. One is to keep Noah and allow him to eat up a massive amount of cap space and a roster spot for the next two years, while not even really being a part of the team.
