With the Portland Trail Blazers suffering dealing with injuries to key big men Zach Collins and Jusuf Nurkic, not to mention the injury-related retirement of Pau Gasol, some have called for the team to reach out to veteran big man Joakim Noah.
While speaking to Dan Sheldon and Nigel Burton on ‘Rip City Mornings’, Terry Stotts says that it already happened, before the season:

No word on if Noah or the team are interested in revisiting conversations with the aforementioned injuries affecting the depth chart. The Trail Blazers were recently awarded a $2.86 million injury exception for Rodney Hood.
