Joakim Noah is doing well in adjusting to the Clippers system according to head coach Doc Rivers.
Noah, who started Wednesday's exhibition win over the Magic and played 15 minutes, has long been lauded for his ability as a passer. His role, which could expand depending upon the status of Ivica Zubac (not in Orlando) and Montrezl Harrell (family emergency), is a bit different with the Clippers but Rivers had nothing but positive things to say about the veteran center. “He’s an elite passer. We already knew that,” Rivers said after Wednesday's win. “What I love was the screening and rolling. He is so used to coming towards the ball and getting the ball, and we are asking him to do something completely different, and that’s screen-and-roll more. So he’s still getting used to it, but I thought today overall, he did a great job." JaMychal Green will benefit more in the short-term with Zubac and Harrell away from the team, but Noah is worth keeping tabs on. Jul 23 1:20 pm (EST)
