Joakim Noah

Joakim Noah

— The Knicks continue to be busy this offseason, reportedly closing in on an agreement with Bulls free agent center Joakim Noah that will pay him $18 million per season.

Noah, a two-time All-Star and former NBA Defensive Player of the Year, would rejoin former Bulls guard Derrick Rose, whom the Knicks acquired in a trade on draft day, and shore up a frontcourt that was depleted when New York sent center Robin Lopez to Chicago.

“Oh, I want him,” Rose said of Noah during his introductory press conference with the Knicks last week. “I think his family knows that. I think everybody knows that.”

The 31-year-old Noah averaged 4.3 points and 8.8 rebounds in 29 games this past season — starting just twice as Bulls coach Fred Holberg moved him to a bench role — before he had season-ending shoulder surgery in January. A native of New York, he is close with Rose and Knicks star Carmelo Anthony.

Free agent deals can’t be signed until July 7, but verbal agreements can be made starting Friday.

The Knicks reportedly also plan to add a shooting guard, with Courtney Lee and Eric Gordon said to be among their targets. Signing Noah likely would take them out of the running for Kevin Durant, but they reportedly are not one of the teams Durant had agreed to meet as he heads to free agency.

The Bulls, meanwhile, are expected to also lose Pau Gasol in free agency as they start to rebuild around All-Star guard Jimmy Butler.

— The Thunder reportedly are attempting to make a play for Hawks free agent center Al Horford, offering other teams players such as Enes Kanter and Kyle Singler to clear cap space.

Horford, who played for Thunder coach Billy Donovan in college at Florida, winning two NCAA championships, has played all nine of his NBA seasons with the Hawks. After Thunder star Kevin Durant, he is likely to be the most highly sought player in free agency.

A four-time All-Star, Horford averaged 15.2 points and 7.3 rebounds while playing all 82 games last season.

— Michael Phelps became the first American male swimmer to qualify for five Olympics when he won the 200-meter butterfly at Wednesday’s U.S. Olympic trials.

The most decorated athlete in Olympic history, Phelps appeared to be done with competitive swimming after the London Olympics, especially after his well-documented troubles that included a second drunk driving arrest. But Phelps, who turns 31 Thursday, committed himself to turning things around.

“With everything that’s happened and being able to come back, that was probably harder than any swim I’ve had in my life,” he said.

ON THIS DAY TRIVIA (answer below): On June 30, 1993, the Celtics had the 19th overall pick in the NBA draft, which they used to select which center from Iowa who had an unremarkable pro career?

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “I need to pitch better. It’s nothing else, it’s not bad luck — it’s me. I’ve got to get better. … I’m just putting us behind the 8-ball in a lot of games. I’m not setting the tone the way that I need to. It’s crushing me right now, but I’ll get there.” — Red Sox pitcher David Price, after Wednesday’s 4-0 loss to the Rays dropped his record to 8-5

STAT OF THE DAY: 6 — Runs scored in the ninth inning Wednesday by the Yankees, as they rallied for a 9-7 victory over the league-leading Rangers

‘NET RESULTS: Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo gets an inside-the-park home run when the Reds outfielders can’t corral his fly ball to left-center.


SOOTHING SOUNDS: The late Florence Ballard, a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer for her days with the Supremes, was born on this day in 1943.
