Knicks waive Noah after just two seasons

On Saturday, the New York Knicks finally severed ties with Joakim Noah, announcing they have waived the former All-Star after two astoundingly disappointing seasons.

Per ESPN's report, the Knicks will use the stretch provision, allowing them to spread the money they owe Noah in his final season over three years.

Noah underwent knee surgery in February of his first season with the team, and just one month later was hit with a 20-game suspension for violating the league's anti-drug policy.

The Chicago Bulls selected him with the ninth overall pick in the 2007 draft. He won Defensive Player of the Year in 2013-14.

Amazon Kills AI System That Was Biased Against Women
Amazon , a source said, has a new team assembled to give online screening another try, this time with a focus on diversity. The engineers told Reuters the idea was scrapped past year once it was determined the gender bias could not be corrected.

Noah signed a four-year, $72 million deal in 2016 and he leaves with $38 million of that remaining.

Noah's tenure in NY was a tumultuous one, marred by injuries and a suspension.

He was unable to regain his rotation spot once he was eligible to return and didn't play again following his argument with Hornacek after playing 4 1/2 minutes in a loss at Golden State on January 23.

The former Chicago Bulls centre averaged 4.6 points and 7.9 rebounds with NY.
