It looks like Joakim Noah is bringing the curtains down on his incredible 13-year NBA career.
According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the LA Clippers are waiving Noah - a move that appears to be a by-product of the team re-signing Reggie Jackson.
Wojnarowski further reports that Noah's agent Bill Duffy indicates that former All-Star is 'likely headed towards retirement'.
Clippers are waiving center Joakim Noah -- and his agent, Bill Duffy of @BDA_Sports, tells ESPN that Noah is "likely headed toward retirement." One of his era's most ferocious competitors, Noah played 13 seasons, made two All-Star games and was a 3-time All-Defensive team choice.- Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) December 2, 2020
The 6'11" center had signed a two-year non-guaranteed deal with the Clippers prior to the NBA restart in Orlando.
In the five games he played in Orlando bubble, Noah averaged 2.8 points and 3.2 rebounds which included a game against the Oklahoma City Thunder where he finished with nine points, six rebounds, and five assists in 29 minutes played.
Drafted ninth overall in the 2007 Draft, Noah played nine years of his career with the team that drafted him - the Chicago Bulls, earning two All-Star selections with the franchise.
His best season, the 2013-14 campaign, he averaged 12.6 points, 11.3 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 1.5 blocks, and 1.2 steals in 80 games.
Helping the Chicago Bulls win 48 games, without Derrick Rose, Noah finished 5th in the season's MVP voting. That season also earned him his lone Defensive Player of the Year Award and his lone All-NBA selection.
