Joakim Noah is officially no longer a member of the New York Knicks, according to ESPN. The team waived him, spreading out the money the team owes Noah over several years with "stretch provision"; they'll be paying approximately $6.4 million per year through 2021 rather than working around his $19.3 million salary cap.
In just over two years with the team, Noah never averaged more than 5 points per game. In the 2016-17 season, he played half and the year after he only played 7 games after a 20-game ban for violating the substance policy.
In February, Noah fought with his former coach and The Knicks were unable to find anyone to take on Noah's large contract, hence the decision to waive him. He will become an unrestricted free agent next week.
