NBA free agency rumors: Grizzlies sign C Joakim Noah to 1-year deal

The Grizzlies have agreed to a one-year deal with free agent center Joakim Noah, according to ESPN, which cited unidentified league sources.

Noah’s deal is worth $1.73 million as part of a prorated minimum deal for the rest of the season, according to the report.

The 33-year-old was waived by the Knicks in October.

New York still owes Noah $38 million from the four-year deal he signed for $72 million in 2016.

Noah was in just 53 games over the previous two seasons with the Knicks. He played only seven games in 2017-18 while averaging 1.7 points and 2.0 rebounds.

The 2007 No. 9 overall pick is a two-time All-Star and has averaged 8.9 points and 9.3 rebounds in his career.
