The Memphis Grizzlies and free agent center Joakim Noah are hashing out terms on a one-year deal expected to be completed by early next week, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

A separate report from The Athletic's Shams Charania says the deal is already complete and is for the veteran's minimum.

Noah, 33, was waived by the New York Knicks in October with two years and $37.8 million remaining on his contract.

The 11-year NBA veteran spent his first nine seasons with the Chicago Bulls, earning two All-Star nods and three All-Defensive Team selections. He was the 2013-14 NBA Defensive Player of the Year.

After signing a four-year, $72 million deal with his hometown Knicks in July 2016, Noah spent two injury-plagued campaigns in New York before getting released. Noah played in only seven games in 2017-18.

The 6-foot-11 Noah has appeared in 625 games and posted career averages of 8.9 points, 9.3 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.3 blocks per game.

The Grizzlies have only one true center on their current roster, 33-year-old Marc Gasol.
