Jean-Pierre Aubry, president of French club Paris-Levallois: “Ron Stewart has provided me the name of Jason Collins, he knows him well. I asked Greg (Beugnot) and Jacques (Monclar) to keep an eye on this.”
Ron Stewart knows Noah very well as he coached him. A comeback of “Yooks” wouldn’t displease him, even if the offer is not on the table yet. “I think you can’t take [what he said] seriously,” said Stewart. “Levallois is the only place where he played in France, so he’s talking about us”. In the meantime, the Bulls center has several weeks to think about his future. When he came back from Lituania on Monday, the recent silver medalist said he only thought about taking a break. Surely in Hawaii “to learn how to surf”. Fans of Paris-Levallois remain in the dark for now.
During the lockout, there’s no guarantee Joakim Noah won’t sign overseas. But if he had to sign somewhere, it would be in Paris-Levallois. In a chat with orange.fr, the Bulls center said he still has a bond with the club where everything started for him.
