The New York Knicks are unlikely to bring Joakim Noah back into the organization under David Fizdale. The Knicks plan to part ways with Noah unless they can find a trade involving his two years and $37.8 million remaining on his dea.
The Knicks will use the NBA's waive-and-stretch provision to release Noah after Sept. 1.
After the hiring of Fizdale in June, Knicks management didn't rule out the possibility of Noah rejoining the organization for the 2018-19 season.
Scott Perry has been attempting to move Noah but hasn't come close to finding a deal.
Noah and the Knicks separated in February following a heated argument between Noah and ex-coach Jeff Hornacek.
Phil Jackson signed Noah to a four-year, $72 million deal in 2016.
