Report: Warriors Interested in Former Defensive Player of the Year

Joakim Noah has only played seven games this season, but the Warriors are reportedly interested in adding the veteran big man to their bench. 

Noah, who turns 33 in two days, has not suited up in a game since Jan. 23. That game was a Knicks loss... to the Warriors. He played 4 minutes and 31 seconds, scored two points and grabbed one rebound. 

The veteran may never play again for the Knicks and could be a buyout option. If that does happen, the Warriors, Thunder and T'Wolves are all interested in Noah, according to Frank Isola of the New York Daily News. 

In the seven games that he has played, Noah is averaging 1.7 points and 2.0 rebounds per game in New York. Back in 2012-13 and 2013-14, Noah was an All-Star with the Bulls and was named the 2013-14 NBA Defensive Player of the Year. 

Noah has been out of the rotation and off the court ever since an altercation with head coach Jeff Hornacek one month ago in Denver. The issue reportedly first came to fruition the night before in Oakland after the team's loss to the Warriors.
