Joakim Noah is going Hollywood for his next NBA chance.
The former Knicks and Bulls center agreed to a deal with the Clippers on Friday, according to ESPN. The oft-injured free agent will join the team on a 10-day contract next week with the hopes he will finish the season with the club, the report said.
Noah, 35, last played in an NBA game on March 23 of last year with the Grizzlies. The former NBA Defensive Player of the Year spent two mostly unproductive season with the Knicks, playing in just a combined 53 games after being signed to a four-year, $72 million contract by then team president Phil Jackson.
The Clippers have had their eyes on Noah, who had been working out between Los Angeles and New York. The Clippers, currently the second seed in the West behind the rival Lakers, see Noah as a physical and veteran presence that may be needed in the postseason.
