    A person with knowledge of the details says Joakim Noah and the New York Knicks have agreed to a four-year deal worth $72 million.

    The Knicks filled the center spot that opened when they dealt Robin Lopez to Chicago by turning to the versatile Noah, a New York native who has spent his entire career with the Bulls.

    The deal was agreed to Friday night, the person told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because deals cannot be signed until July 7.

    Noah battled injuries last season and was limited to a career-low 29 games, but Derrick Rose said he wanted his former teammate in New York with him after the Knicks acquired him from the Bulls last week. Noah made it clear that was his goal Friday when he posted a photo of himself on Instagram slipping on a Knicks hat.
