Leon Rose and World Wide Wes have added yet another former Wildcat to the New York Knicks roster. According to Adrian Wojnarowski, Nerlens Noel is headed to New York on a one-year deal with the Knicks.

Noel joins a roster that already includes Kevin Knox, Julius Randle and new draft pick Immanuel Quickley, plus new assistant head coach Kenny Payne. Noel will compete for minutes with Mitchell Robinson, a former WKU Hilltopper, and then there’s new draft pick Obi Toppin, the older brother of current UK player Jacob Toppin. How’s that for Kentucky connections in the Garden?

The 2013 SEC Rookie and Defensive Player of the Year, Noel played his last two NBA seasons in Oklahoma City, alongside Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, Hamidou Diallo and Patrick Patterson.

We have to be Knicks fans, right?
