Sources tell the Washington Post Joakim Noah will almost certainly sign with New York after free agency begins. He’s expected to get about $18 million a year.

According to the Post, Noah, 31, averaged 4.3 points and 8.8 rebounds per game for the Chicago Bulls in 29 games last season before he had season-ending shoulder surgery in January.
