Grizzlies officially sign Joakim Noah
MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The Memphis Grizzlies have signed 33-year-old forward Joakim Noah, a former All-Star attempting a comeback.
Grizzlies general manager Chris Wallace announced Tuesday that the team has signed the 6-foot-11 Noah for the remainder of the season.
Noah made consecutive All-Star appearances in 2013 and 2014. He finished fourth in the Most Valuable Player balloting and was named NBA defensive player of the year in the 2013-14 season.
But he hasn’t been much of a factor in recent years as injuries curtailed his production.
Noah appeared in just seven games with the New York Knicks last season and averaged 1.7 points, 2 rebounds and 5.7 minutes.
He has career averages of 8.9 points, 9.3 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.35 blocks in 11 seasons with the Chicago Bulls (2007-16) and Knicks (2016-18).
