Report: With Joakim Noah near suspension return, Knicks eying Mindaugas Kuzminskas trade


Joakim Noah will complete his suspension for performance-enhancing drugs over the weekend and be eligible to play Monday.

So, the Knicks must open a roster spot.

Ian Begley of ESPN:

New York has 15 players - the regular-season roster limit - with guaranteed salaries plus Jarrett Jack on an unguaranteed deal. But the Knicks are 5-1 since making Jack a starter. They shouldn't cut him.

Kuzminskas had a solid rookie season last year, but he hasn't even been active for a game yet this season. He's clearly frustrated and would probably welcome a trade.

But he's also already 28 and making $3,025,035 in the final year of his contract. I doubt teams clamor for him, especially considering how little the Knicks seem to value him - a pretty large indicator.

Kuzminskas is a fine pro with all-around skills, including high energy. He should surface somewhere - if not traded, at least sometimes back onto New York's active roster.

Some previous comments from LeBron riled up members of the Knicks organization, and there's been animosity between the two sides ever since.
