Despite their recent run on ex-Bulls, the Wolves will not pursue Joakim Noah if (or when) he's released from the Knicks.
Earlier rumors had the Knicks using the stretch provision to rid themselves of Noah some time in September, and the Thibs connection was strong enough to get people guessing that he'd certainly end up on the Wolves. That doesn't appear to be the case, however, as Minnesota has enough frontcourt depth to get by already. Noah should be facing a brutal market once the Knicks sign the proper paperwork.
