Grizzlies agree to deal with big man Noah

Publish date:

Free-agent center Joakim Noah has agreed to a one-year contract with the Memphis Grizzlies, according to a report from Shams Charania of Stadium.

The deal will pay him the veteran's minimum. He will travel to Memphis on Sunday and sign the contract early next week, Charania reported.

Noah, 33, has been rumored to join the Grizzlies since agreeing to a buyout with the New York Knicks last month.

He played in only seven games for the Knicks last season. In 5.7 minutes, he averaged 1.7 points and 2.0 rebounds.

He combined to play 53 games for New York over the last two years, averaging less than five points. He also underwent two surgeries and had a 20-game PED suspension.
