Jeff Hornacek was asked on Monday about the status of Joakim Noah and when his situation may be resolved.
“I’m not sure,” Hornacek said. “In the summer, Scott [Perry, the general manager] and Steve [Mills, the team president] will be talking with him. I guess that’s how it will get resolved.”
The Knicks attempted to trade Noah at the deadline after his confrontation during a January practice with Hornacek.
New York is most likely to stretch and waive Noah after September 1st to create additional 2019 cap space if they're unable to trade him in July. Noah is signed through 19-20 and stretching him at that point would spread that season's salary of $19.3 million over three years.
