The New York Knicks are reportedly ready to move on from veteran center Joakim Noah.

New York is prepared to waive Noah before the regular-season roster is set on Oct. 15 barring the sudden emergence of a trade proposal, according to Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News.

Noah is still owed $38 million from the $72-million contract that former Knicks president Phil Jackson signed him to in 2016. Since then, Noah has battled persistent injuries and a PED-related suspension, and is now entangled in a self-imposed exile after he clashed with former head coach Jeff Hornacek over a lack of playing time last season.

It's unclear if Noah will give back some money after being waived, but the Knicks can open roughly $13 million in cap room for next summer by parting ways with the 33-year-old pivot.
