I really hope Noah gores to the Clippers.

Would be awesome to see him win a ring at the end of his career, and do it by likely beating LeBron and AD in the playoffs.
and maybe he faces his old buddy Horford and PHILA in the Finals too.

The irony that he would become a 'Hollywood as Hell' legend in LA if he's part of the first Clippers championship.
He's got the money, he would really be playing for his legacy. Ballmer would love him.
It would give us a horse to root for in the playoffs too.

even if they don;t pick him up now, maybe he comes in for his workout now ands they sign him down the road :pray:

Also, per rotoworld:

Joakim Noah will join the Clippers for workouts this week.
He had an individual workout with the Lakers in August before they signed Dwight Howard. Noah had a strong finish to the 2018-19 season with Memphis and still has plenty of gas left in the tank, so he would be a solid addition as a third-string center behind Ivica Zubac and Montrezl Harrell.


How many bigs is joakim better than on the bulls?
Felicio, kornet, Gafford come to mind.
Sure gafford and kornet are likeable and have potential but when available guys are arguably better than what you have then it’s kind of frustrating.
A guy like Melo is probably being blackballed but look at hutch, valentine and it’s easy who I’d rather get minutes for a competitive team.


Im just astonished why the Bulls wont sign former players such as Noah, Deng, Gibson, Rose.
Like Noah is several times better than garbage Felicio whose making nearly 10. All of them still better than our bench combined.
Or are they shunning the Bulls since the team isnt good enough?

Who's to say they haven't reached out to agents of those guys who rebuffed them. In each case there is reason for player resentment.

That’s a bad assumption. They’ve been reporting before the summer bulls were interested in Gibson. Rose also damn near blatantly says he wants to be a Bull all the time. Bulls didn’t give either an offer sheet. Though I agree those guys are better than most of our bench.

Taj got paid, so he was out. Rose and Noah aren't the sort of guys who Jim's style would likely mesh with. Deng may have issues.

I tell you, Bulls gear is just timeless. It looks good basically on everyone.

Joakim Noah is not expected to workout with the Los Angeles Clippers, league sources told Andrew Greif of the Los Angeles Times.

Noah was initially scheduled for a workout this week.

The Clippers will go into training camp with one open roster spot.


Per Wiretap. Too bad, he would have been a great fit on the Clippers. I'd still take him on this roster. He has a lot of game left.

I would want him on the team too, but it would be more for sentimental reasons, even though, like you said, he still has some game left.

The issue is, we went from being relatively thin in the front court, to it being basically our deepest position, so I don't know where he would fit.

We should be on the look out for a swing player first and foremost. Hell, if we could get in the Iggy sweepstakes, that would be massive.

He's also from Chicago so wouldn't be surprised if he grew up a Bulls fan

Noah would be a good addition for this team. In my mind I don't see him getting much playing time, but his true value would be helping and teaching Lauri and Wendell how to truly affect the game without scoring. Imagine a Lauri and or Wendell being able to make the proper reads and racking up assist and rebounds any where as well Noah did. That kind of development would put the team in a really good position to win games and even put up a fight in the playoffs.

Maybe the quote is out of context, but it just comes off weird.

Return to Chicago Bulls
