Former Florida Gator Joakim Noah joins Los Angeles Clippers

The free agent deal keeps the 12-year veteran with the playoff-bound team for the rest of this season.

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Clippers have signed free agent Joakim Noah to a new contract for the rest of the season, three months after the former Florida Gator standout first signed a 10-day deal with the team.

The two-time All-Star averaged 7.1 points, 5.7 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 42 games for Memphis last season. Noah originally signed with the Clippers on March 9, two days before the NBA put its season on hold because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The 35-year-old center was the 2014 defensive player of the year. Noah provides the Clippers with playoff experience and additional depth at the position.

Noah’s 12 years in the NBA also include stints with Chicago and the New York Knicks.
