The San Antonio Spurs have decided to extend Steve Novak's stay in San Antonio. They announced today that they have signed the 6-10 forward to a second 10-day contract.
Novak, a 6-10 forward, appeared in five games for the Spurs, averaging 2.6 points in 4.3 minutes per game, while shooting .444 (4-9) from the field and .429 (3-7) from three-point territory.
Prior to joining the Spurs, Novak appeared in two games with the Reno Bighorns, averaging 18.5 points and 6.5 rebounds in 29.5 minutes, while shooting .684 (13-19) from the field and .643 (9-14) from three-point range.
With Novak on board for another 10 days, the Spurs now have two non-rotation three-point threats with Novak and Chris Quinn, who they could call on late in games to hit some clutch threes. One thing is apparent, the Spurs don't want to lose another playoff series due to shots not falling from beyond the arch.

I agree with you guys, Steve Novak will be a nice insurance off the bench. Even if the Spurs sign him thru the remainder of the season, I think they still have open roster spots left so that is not a problem. Good luck Novak!
