Noel and Paul parted ways in December after the center signed a one-year, $5 million deal with the Knicks.

The suit alleges Paul was negligent in advising Noel to turn down a $70 million extension with the Mavericks in 2017. Promising him he was a “$100 million player,” Paul reportedly convinced Noel to leave his then-agent, Happy Walters.

Represented by his new agency, Noel earlier this month signed a three-year deal with the Knicks that could be worth up to $32 million with bonuses.
