The New York Knicks have emerged as the strong favorite to sign free-agent big man Joakim Noah, according to league sources. Samuel Umtiti Jersey .Sources told ESPN that multiple teams interested in Noah have all but conceded that the Knicks are his runaway preferred destination.The Knicks meeting with Noah will be Friday afternoon, league sources said.No deals can be officially signed until July 7, but teams and free agents can start coming to verbal agreements on contracts ?starting Friday at 12:01 a.m.?Noah, a former All-Star center, is scheduled to meet with Knicks president Phil Jackson on Friday, according to sources.There is significant interest on both sides. Noah, a native New Yorker, had expressed strong interest in signing with the Knicks in recent days, sources say. He is close with Carmelo Anthony and Derrick Rose, his former teammate in Chicago, who said last week that he would like Noah to join him in New York.The Knicks are eager to land a center this offseason. They have prioritized the position in free agency after trading Robin Lopez, last years starting center, to Chicago in the Rose trade.Noah, 31, is coming off a 2015-16 season filled with injury. He suffered two significant shoulder injuries that limited him to 29 games last season, missing almost a month with a left shoulder tear and undergoing season-ending surgery to repair a left shoulder dislocation in January. He has spent a portion of his summer at The Peak Performance Project in Santa Barbara, California.He has been outspoken in years past about how much he loves Chicago, and there is still some hope within his camp that he will stay with the Bulls, but the likely option is that Noah will take a big-money deal from a team and look for a new start.Im very focused on free agency, Noah said in June, according to international website Sportando. I spent the last 10 years in Chicago. There were good moments and bad moments, but now I have an incredible opportunity for a player, being recruited by a team. I definitely want to live that kind of experience. Its new for me, but its something very intriguing for a player.The Knicks have roughly $30 million to spend in free agency and hope to fit Noah into that space while keeping enough room to add a starting shooting guard. Courtney Lee and Eric Gordon are among the guards the Knicks have a level of interest in, sources say.Some members of the Knicks organization expressed optimism earlier in the week about getting an audience with free agent Kevin Durant. But if the club comes to terms quickly with Noah, its unlikely that it will have the requisite cap space to sign Durant to a max contract. The Knicks are currently not among the teams that have secured a meeting with Durant.Information from ESPN staff writer Nick Friedell was used in this report. Cheap Barcelona Jersey . The Vancouver coach and an announced sellout crowd of 18,910 watched in dismay as the Canucks lost 7-4 to the New York Islanders on Monday night by squandering a 3-0 lead in the third period. Sergio Busquets Jersey . LOUIS -- Heading into the final stretch of the season, the issues for the Chicago Bears banged-up defence only seem to be getting worse. http://www.fcbarcelonapro.com/...e-Ter-Stegen-Jersey/ . Brandon Morrow allowed five runs on six hits over three innings. He struck out two, walked one and hit a batter. Edwin Encarnacion had a two-out, bases loaded two-RBI double in the third inning.ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Jeff Keppinger walked with the bases loaded to drive in the go-ahead run -- his first base on balls in 141 plate appearances this season -- and the Chicago White Sox rallied with three runs in the eighth to beat the Los Angeles Angels 5-4 on Thursday night for their season-high third straight road win. The Angels bullpen wasted a two-run lead as the club lost its second straight and dropped to 8-12 at home. Matt Lindstrom (2-2) got the victory after facing one batter in the seventh, getting Mike Trout to fly out to right to end the inning. Addison Reed pitched the ninth to earn his 13th save in 14 chances. Dane Del La Rosa (1-1) took the loss, giving up all three runs in the eighth. He had pitched two perfect innings with three strikeouts against the White Sox last Friday. The walk was the third in a row issued by Michael Kohn, who threw 12 of his final 14 pitches out of the strike zone. Chicago closed to 4-3 after Alejandro De Aza scored when De La Rosa threw a wild pitch on a strikeout by Alex Rios. Alexei Ramirez tied the game 4-all on a single by Adam Dunn. All seven of the games between the two teams are taking place in a span of 10 days. The series is tied 2-2, with three more in Anaheim. Howie Kendrick gave the Angels a 4-2 lead when he doubled to deep left-centre in the sixth, scoring Mark Trumbo, who walked, and Josh Hamilton, who singled to right. White Sox left fielder Dayan Viciedo scrambled to track the ball over his shoulder, but he misplayed it and Hamilton easily beat the throw to the plate. Chicago tied the game at 2 in the fifth when Conor Gillasspie doubled to lead off, took second on a groundout and scored when Keppinger was safe at first on shortstop Erick Aybars fielding error. Jordi Alba Jersey. The Angels took a 2-1 lead in the fourth when Albert Pujols homered on the first pitch into the right field seats, scoring Mike Trout, who was issued a leadoff walk by Jose Quintana. Chicago led 1-0 in the fourth on a towering homer by Rios with two outs, extending his hitting streak to 11 games. The ball just cleared both bullpens in left field and landed in the first few rows of seats. Angels starter Jerome Williams allowed two runs and five hits in six-plus innings, struck out three and walked none. Making his second straight start against the Angels, Quintana gave up four runs and six hits in 6 2-3 innings, struck out four and walked three. NOTES: Two key Angels relievers took significant steps in their return from injury on Thursday. RHP Kevin Jepsen (shoulder strain, out since April 12) and LHP Sean Burnett (forearm irritation, out since April 27) both threw full-intensity bullpen workouts. Jepsen expects to begin a minor league stint of one or two games this weekend, putting him in line to return late next week. Manager Mike Scioscia said Burnett will probably need one minor league game before being activated, perhaps by Tuesday. ... The Angels recalled RHP Ryan Brasier from Triple-A Salt Lake and selected the contract of RHP Billy Buckner from Salt Lake, making him the 21st pitcher the team has used this season. The club optioned LHP Michael Roth to Double-A Arkansas and designated RHP Barry Enright for assignment.
