Former NBA champion with the Golden State Warriors, Marreese Speights, believes Joakim Noah deserves to join an NBA team.

Noah is 100 percent healthy again after rehabbing his Achilles injury and Speights claims the NBA veteran deserves one more shot in the league.

“I really don’t know. I say it to myself, ‘He plays hard, Defensive Player of the Year, All-Star.’ But you never know with this League. Maybe it was some stuff outside of basketball, I never know. But, I know he deserves to be in there though,” Speights told Brandon “Scoop B” Robinson of Heavy.

Noah played 42 games for the Memphis Grizzlies last season, averaging 7.1 points, 5.7 rebounds and 2.1 assists.
