The San Antonio Spurs wasted little time in adding a new player to the roster after Larry Owens rejoined the Tulsa 66ers this weekend.
According to Jonathan Givony of DraftExpress, the Spurs will be signing forward Steve Novak to a 10-day contract.
Novak recently had a two-game stint with the Reno Bighorns of the D-League, averaging 18.5 points on 68 percent shooting from the field and 64 percent from beyond the arch.
Novak has NBA career averages of 40 percent on three-pointers and seems to be in the mold of Matt Bonner, so he should provide the Spurs with some extra depth and shooting help off the bench until Bonner returns to the lineup.
The signing is expected to be official tomorrow. With the addition, the Spurs roster will be at 13 players.
The way I see it, the Spurs are using the 10-day contracts to see how will players fit to their system hopefully Steve Novak is the man! :) PS. I think he will be gone as soon as Bonner can play.
Novak could be a great steal if he plays well. The Spurs can keep him because they have 2 more roster spots. I like this move.
Does he have better defense than bonner?? It seems he has a faster release than Bonner and doesnt need to be that open to hit the three...
