Trading Block: Joakim Noah


Joakim Noah is on the trading block. After being considered a major acquisition for an exciting 2016-17 season with Derrick Rose, Courtney Lee, Carmelo Anthony, and Kristaps Porzingis, Noah is now outside the rotation after Enes Kanter and Kristaps Porzingis have been on fire to start the season, and Kyle O’Quinn and Michael Beasley have been backing them up effectively.

Noah got a bit lost in the big apple; once an icon of high character in Chicago, Noah was suspended 20 games for drug abuse as a Knick last season. Still, a team looking for energy, leadership, a veteran presence, and a mobile center should take a flyer on Noah while his face value is sunk. Here are the best trades for Noah:

Brooklyn: Joakim Noah for Timofey Mozgov

Charlotte: Joakim Noah, Courtney Lee for Nicolas Batum, Cody Zeller

New York: Joakim Noah, Lance Thomas, 2020 2nd Round Pick for Robin Lopez, Nikola Mirotic

Cleveland: Joakim Noah, Courtney Lee for J.R. Smith, Iman Shumpert

Detroit: Joakim Noah for Boban Marjanovic, Jon Leuer

Milwaukee: Joakim Noah, Courtney Lee for John Henson, Mirza Teletovic, Rashad Vaughn

Washington: Joakim Noah for Ian Mahinmi

Memphis: Joakim Noah, Lance Thomas for Chandler Parsons

New Orleans: Joakim Noah, Lance Thomas for Solomon Hill, Omer Asik, Alexis Ajinca

Utah: Joakim Noah, Ron Baker for Alec Burks, Joe Johnson
