Joakim Noah, who played for the Chicago Bulls the last nine seasons, will become a free agent this offseason where he has a chance to find a team that will give him a major role at this point of his career. NBA rumors has linked Noah to the likes of the Minnesota Timberwolves and New York Knicks but energetic big man admitted that he will consider “every offer on the table” this summer.
Via sportando.com, Noah discussed his free agency plans and his disappointing experience last year with the Bulls.
“Playing time, man. I haven’t played many minutes this season and that was a major change for me. It was difficult, there was a change of culture in the team and many things changed,” Noah said in the article. “Then I got hurt and the season was over for me. I was very disappointed, man. Definitely a bad season but you know, you need to go through adversity to become a better player.”
Some other teams that may interest Noah, according to various NBA rumors, are the Los Angeles Lakers, Charlotte Hornets and Houston Rockets, who all need an additional big man to improve their front court.
NBA rumors will continue to surround Noah until he chooses his next team in the 2016 free agency. But among the five teams mentioned, it looks like the Minnesota Timberwolves have the best chance of landing Noah because of the presence of former head coach Tom Thibodeau in Minnesota. Thibodeau coached Noah in Chicago where the pair had successful runs to the postseason.
