If Joakim Noah agrees upon a buyout from the New York Knicks before the deadline to become playoff eligible, he is expected to receive interest from a number of contending teams.
The Warriors, Timberwolves and Thunder are believed to have interest in signing Noah.
Minnesota would give Noah the opportunity to reunite with Tom Thibodeau.
Noah remains away from the Knicks following a January altercation at practice with Jeff Hornacek. Hornacek pushed Noah and Noah pushed him back before the two were separated.
Noah hasn’t addressed his status publicly since leaving.
Noah signed a four-year, $72 million deal with the Knicks in 2016 and he has two seasons remaining on the deal. It would benefit the Knicks to wait on parting ways with Noah unless he took a significant reduction off the contract.
