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.
