Knicks coach Jeff Hornacek said center Joakim Noah is "ready to move on and maybe have an opportunity somewhere else," according to Ian Begley of ESPN.
Noah has played in just seven games this season. Noah's rocky tenure with the Knicks continued last month when he reportedly had an altercation with Hornacek during practice.
"We're trying to get our young guys to step it up," Hornacek said, according to Newsday. "That's kind of old story and all done with as far as I'm concerned."
Noah been away from the team for a significant portion of the season. His absence was once deemed to be based on "personal reasons," but the team ultimately determined it was "a mutual decision."
The 32-year-old veteran signed a four-year, $72 million deal with the Knicks in 2016, but was suspended in 2017 for violating the NBA's anti-drug policy and subsequently suffered a rotator cuff injury.
Noah, who spent the first nine seasons of his career with the Bulls, has averaged 4.6 points and 7.9 rebounds per game in 53 games with the Knicks.
