Clippers sign Joakim Noah to 10-day deal

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

The Los Angeles Clippers have signed another big man. The team has signed free agent center Joakim Noah.

However, with the season a little more than a month left, he has been signed to a 10-day deal by the team. At this time, it’s unclear if he’ll sign another 10-day deal, or if they’ll part ways.

The Clippers have been intrigued by Noah all season. There was some speculation back in September that the big man could sign with the team.

Back in February, there was some more speculation, but instead of signing Noah, the Clippers signed free agent Marcus Morris.

It is going to be tough for Noah to see playing time. Montrezl Harrell and Ivica Zubac are receiving the most time off of the bench for the Clippers.

The 35-year-old New York, New York native has not played at all this season. In fact, he has been limited to 49 games the last three seasons so far.

He signed with the Memphis Grizzlies on December 4, 2018. Noah then appeared in 42 games with the team, including one start.

He averaged 7.1 points, 5.7 rebounds, 2.1 assists, 0.5 steals, and 0.7 blocks in 16.5 minutes per game.

It’s been years since Noah was a productive player throughout a season. In fact, he has not averaged more than 10 points in a season since the 2013-14 season with the Chicago Bulls.

That season, he appeared in 80 games, including 80 starts. He averaged a career-best 12.6 points in 35.3 minutes per game.
