New York Knicks Vice President, Basketball Operations and General Manager Glen Grunwald announced today that the team has re-signed forward Steve Novak.
Novak, 6-10, 240-pounds, averaged 8.8 points, on 47.8-percent shooting from the field (161-337) and 47.2-percent (133-282) from downtown, over 18.9 minutes in 54 games off the bench after being claimed off waivers on Dec. 21. He led the NBA in three-point field goal percentage (.472), becoming just the second Knick to accomplish the feat (Campy Russell, 1981-82). His three-point prowess included eight games with three triples, eight games of four treys, six five-triple games and a career-best eight three pointers during an Apr. 17 win versus Boston. The Milwaukee, WI native was originally selected by Houston in the second round (32nd overall) of the 2006 NBA Draft following a four-year career at Marquette University.
