Joakim Noah and the Knicks have agreed on a four-year deal worth $72 million, according to ESPN’s Ramona Shelburne.

Noah, who underwent season-ending surgery on his left shoulder in January, averaged 4.3 points and 8.8 rebounds in 29 games for the Chicago Bulls last season. The 31-year-old was picked ninth by Chicago in 2007 out of Florida. 

Last week, the Bulls traded guard Derrick Rose to New York in exchange for Robin Lopez, Jerian Grant and Jose Calderon. The Knicks also received Justin Holiday and a 2017 second-round pick.
