Buyout Rumors

Sources indicate the likeliest scenario still is Noah becoming a stretch-provision waiver at the Sept. 1 landmark date — as first reported by The Post. Waiting until Sept. 1 would enable the Knicks to maximize their salary-cap savings while not having Noah’s $72 million deal strangle their cap for too many years. Of course, things can change. There’s hope among Knicks brass the team can find a trading partner for Noah, who played seven games this past season.
