Joakim Noah signs with Clippers for remainder of season

LOS ANGELES -- The LA Clippers signed center Joakim Noah for the remainder of the season, the team announced Sunday.

The 2013-14 Defensive Player of the Year's deal with the Clippers also includes next season (non-guaranteed) according to a source.

The Clippers signed the two-time All-Star to a 10-day contract on March 9, only two days before the NBA season was suspended on March 11 because of the coronavirus pandemic.

During the 2018-19 season, Noah played in 42 games for the Memphis Grizzlies, averaging 7.1 points and 5.7 rebounds.

Clippers coach Doc Rivers starts Ivica Zubac at center but utilizes Montrezl Harrell and JaMychal Green against centers as well. Noah, 35, gives the Clippers added depth, 60 games of playoff experience and another center who can possibly provide some minutes when needed to help defend against opposing big men.
