Is Joakim Noah the right fit for Kristaps Porzingis?

Wanna come play for the Knicks? Cool, but it's still all about the Unicorn. Joakim Noah is on the minds of many Knicks fans these days. Unlike with Kevin Durant, New York seems pretty high on his list, particularly if this New York Post article is to be believed. And it all makes sense: Noah is a native New Yorker, the Knicks need a center. But how much their needs actually intertwine is a matter of perspective, and far more complicated than it may seem at first blush. I'm not even talking about Noah's shooting percentage or defensive effectiveness or his injury history or any of that ......

Joakim Noah’s Knicks momentum keeps building

The positive feelings the Knicks have toward Joakim Noah are mutual. According to an NBA source, the Knicks have “a very high interest” in signing the 6-foot-11 Noah to play center in a frontcourt that would feature Carmelo Anthony and Kristaps Porzingis. Another NBA source said Noah is eager for at least a sit-down with...

Trail Blazers: Joakim Noah Could Be The Perfect Fit

Is Joakim Noah the perfect fit for the Trail Blazers? There are a number of notable NBA stars available in this year’s free agency, and once again it seems that the Trail Blazers might find itself on the outside looking in. Despite the surprising success of this past season and the appeal of playing alongside […] Trail Blazers: Joakim Noah Could Be The Perfect Fit - Rip City Project - Rip City Project - A Portland Trailblazers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Report: Bucks plan to make 'substantial' offer to Joakim Noah

Peace out, draft season. Hello, free agency rumor season. Hook it up into my veins. It has begun. According to a report from Sporting News' Mitch Lawrence, the Bucks may be in the running to make an offer to former Chicago Bulls big Joakim Noah. Lawrence lists the New Knicks, Minnesota Wolves, and Washington Wizards as other suitors, with Washington reportedly willing to offer the full max to Noah. Given that the 31 year-old is coming off of surgery to repair a dislocated shoulder, that type of contract seems ... superfluous. Though the Bucks likely aren't (and shouldn't be) considering...

It certainly looks like Derrick Rose is recruiting Joakim Noah to Knicks

Is Derrick Rose already trying to make extra-nice with Knicks free-agent target Joakim Noah? The Rose recruiting may have already started as Rose and Noah, former Bulls teammates, were hanging out late Thursday at the 1Oak club in Manhattan. Rose will be introduced at a Knicks press conference Friday at 4 p.m. at the Garden. According...

Wizards are prepared to offer Joakim Noah a max deal, according to a report

Earlier this week, it was reported that the Wizards would be among several teams interested in Joakim Noah in free agency. And while we weren’t completely enamored with the idea of going after him at the time, at least we understood the logic of trying to bring Noah in to shore up the Wizards’ big man depth. But if a new report from Mitch Lawrence of the Sporting News is correct, the Wizards have much bigger plans in mind for Joakim Noah. Let’s start with the basics: The Wizards are prepared to go all out for the 2014 NBA Defensive Player of the Year because they have glaring holes up...

Washington Wizards reportedly among teams interested in free agent Joakim Noah

One of the biggest needs the Wizards will need to fill this summer is at backup center. They need someone dependable down low who can fill in for Marcin Gortat when needed and perhaps provide a little extra on the defensive end when needed. The first name to pop up in the rumor mill certainly addresses one of those concerns, but definitely not the other: Free agency buzz, which comes fast: can add the Wizards to the list of teams with interest in Noah. He'll have a few suitors. #twolves— Darren Wolfson (@DWolfsonKSTP) June 22, 2016 It would be a nice little coup if the Wizards could...

Jaleel Roberts will play for the Wizards in Summer League again in 2016, according to report

The Washington Wizards’ Las Vegas Summer League team is starting to form into shape. Last year’s draft picks Kelly Oubre and Aaron White should be there, as should Jarell Eddie, who the team signed last season. It appears they’ve also addressed the center position as well. Jaleel Roberts, who played for Wizards in Summer League and received an invitation to training camp, will be , according to J. Michael of CSN Mid-Atlantic: The 7-1 center, who the Wizards paid to attend a skills camp in 2015, played in Australia this past season and will be in Las Vegas for summer league again next...

Wade Baldwin IV would be a perfect fit next to Jimmy Butler for the Chicago Bulls

Can the Vanderbilt sophomore be the Bulls' point guard of the future? The Chicago Bulls are not fortunate enough to enter the summer with just one problem. As Joakim Noah and Pau Gasol prepare for free agency, the future of the front court is in flux. As Mike Dunleavy gets another year older, Tony Snell grows another year closer to hopelessness and Doug McDermott continues to provide more questions than answers, the Bulls have to figure out what they're doing on the wing. It's a team that has to fix a defense that ranked No. 24 in efficiency after Jan. 1 while also boosting an offense that...

Wolves reportedly targeting Joakim Noah, which could spell the end for Kevin Garnett

From the moment Tom Thibodeau was hired as the Timberwolves’ head coach and president of basketball operations (POBO is a great acronym, by the way), there has been speculation that the former Bulls coach would target former player Joakim Noah in free agency. Much of the speculation came in the form of “this makes a ton of sense,” which of course it does. Noah is a defensive-minded big man who thrived under Thibodeau with the Bulls, and his energy + style of play + leadership would be natural fits on a young Wolves team. He would be nice in a rotation with Karl-Anthony Towns and...

2016 NBA free agency: Should the Heat look to sign center Joakim Noah?

The Heat are very familiar with Bulls center Joakim Noah’s skill set. Noah has averaged 9.5 points and 8.8 rebounds in 23 games against Miami over his career. But is it now time for the Heat ...

Cavs desperate for home magic after Game 2 blowout

Twenty minutes after enduring their Game 2 beating Sunday night at Oracle Arena, Cavaliers players filtered from the showers. Three days earlier, Cleveland looked poised to challenge the reigning NBA champions. The Cavs have dropped their past seven meetings with Golden State, a stretch of futility dating back to Game 3 of the 2015 Finals. The cohesive team that won its first 10 playoff games has given way to sloppiness. When reporters flooded a somber visiting locker room Sunday to conduct the postmortem, players struggled to provide an explanation. “I think that’s one of the...
