Joakim Noah will soon be a free agent.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski and Ian Begley, the New York Knicks will waive the former Defensive Player of the Year on Saturday and stretch the remaining $38 million on his contract.

Noah spent the first nine seasons of his career with the Chicago Bulls, where he developed into a two-time All-Star and an All-NBA defender. He then signed a four-year, $72 million contract with New York as a free agent in the summer of 2016.

In the two seasons since, Noah has played in only 53 games with the Knicks, posting averages of 4.6 points, 7.9 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game.

Noah will be available to sign with a new team early next week once he clears waivers, Wojnarowski notes.
