BREAKING: Joakim Noah signs with title contender

March 6, 2020

The Los Angeles Clippers and free-agent center Joakim Noah have reportedly agreed to a 10-day contract, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski. Noah, who last appeared with the Memphis Grizzlies during the 2018-19 season, will report to the Clippers next week.

Noah, 35, appeared in 33 games with the Grizzlies, averaging 7.1 points per game (ppg) and 5.7 rebounds per game (rpg).

Noah’s best seasons came with the Chicago Bulls, where the University of Florida product collected two two All-Star appearances and led the Bulls both offensively and defensively during former MVP Derrick Rose’s absence.

This past offseason, Noah spent time rehabbing an undisclosed Achilles injury which required surgery. Noah confirmed the injury on Instragram after posting a video of his rehab efforts

Noah will compete with starting center Montrezl Harrell and back-up Ivan Zubic for playing time. The Clippers’ acquisition of Noah suggests that head coach Doc Rivers soured on the small-ball lineup featuring Harrell at the five.
