Knicks waive Noah after just two seasons

Joakim Noah's disappointing Knicks career is over after just two seasons.

By using the stretch provision, the Knicks will add about $13 million in cap space to sign free agents next summer, according to the newspaper.

NY will waive and stretch Noah.

Joakim Noah will soon be a free agent.

Noah was diagnosed when he was just three-years-old and Buble said that he and his wife will be withdrawing from public life. The " Haven't Met You Yet " artist is leaving the entertainment world after Noah's battle with cancer.

Former team president Phil Jackson signed Noah to a four-year, $72 million contract in 2016, a move that didn't bring the Knicks much of a return on their investment.

Noah finished with an average of 4.6 points and 7.9 rebounds with NY. Noah's $18.5 salary is still penciled in the Knicks' books for this 2018-19 season. 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.

The Knicks have been trying to deal Noah since last season but have been unsuccessful, since they were unwilling to include any of their young pieces or draft picks in a deal to potentially dump Noah's atrocious contract.

The Knicks also waived Kadeem Allen and Jeff Coby, getting their roster down to 17 players.
