Joakim Noah's comeback bid marches on.

Late Saturday night, Jovan Buha of The Athletic reported that Noah and the Los Angeles Clippers have agreed to a contract that extends through not only the end of the 2019-20 season, but the 2020-21 campaign, as well.

Noah signed with the Clips on a 10-day deal just before the league suspended play due to the novel coronavirus pandemic. It was recently reported that the Clippers planned to extend that 10-day through the rest of this season, but now, it appears he'll have a home in Los Angeles for the next one, too.

The Clippers enter the NBA's 22-team Disney bubble with the fourth-best record in the league (44-20) and second seed in the Western Conference. They're slated to face their crosstown rival Lakers (and LeBron James) on the opening night of the restart, July 30, at 8 p.m. CT.

If or when Noah takes the hardwood, it will be his first NBA action since March 23, 2019 with the Memphis Grizzlies. He's been away from basketball during the 2019-20 season rehabbing an achilles injury he sustained in a fluke accident while moving an ice tub.
