The New York Knicks will sign free agent Steve Novak to a one-year deal, according to a report by Yahoo! Sports. Novak, who was waived by the San Antonio Spurs Monday, will still have to clear waivers before the Knicks could sign him.

Novak has been known as a three-point specialist since coming *into the league since 2006.

If he does end up signing with the Knicks, it will be Novak’s fifth team since entering the league. He’s a career 41% shooter from beyond the arc, where he has taken the majority of his shots.

Why not sign Michael Redd?

He'd be a better option than Novak IMO.

Have you seen Novak stroke the ball?... I don't care how good Redd was/is... I would take Novak probably against any player in the league as a pure shooter.

Definitely thread worthy.

So if the Heat sign someone like a Dexter Pitmann or Jamaal Magloire or Jesus Christ (ala Tim Tebow) at a discounted price for the veteran's minimum, you wouldn't be saying such things I'm assuming!?

I think Redd can be healthy enough to play some 6th man minutes or maybe even start at SG with Fields off the bench. That's why I would pick him.

Ladies and Gentlemen of PSD, we have just seen the end of the NBA as we know it. With Charlotte acquring BJ Mullens and the Pacers allowing Paul George to grow to 6-10, this deal now moves the world power of balance towards the Eastern Conference. With Amar'e and Chandler down low, and the Orange Hope from Syracuse, Novak will be able to launch bombs at a 100 percent rate, wherever he feels deserves to be punished. He'll save us from the North Korea by launching bombs right into the heart of Pyongyang, breaking the new leaders heart and breaking Korea in Half. Now that the three gods have assembled in the eastern conference, these people named Rose, James, and Howard will be after thoughts. The teams will be so great that the ECF will consist of a three way final played in the skies of mount everest. The winner of the battle of the Gods, will go even higher into the abyss and deal with the Next Jordan and the Mytical beast known as Griffin. The final result will end up creating a new planet where the God Tebow will protect.

Not sure if it was a Heat fan. I'm not going to search back a 1 year old thread.I tried looking for the Magloire thread using google, but didn't find it. I did find others threads, all our signings for 2nd/3rd stringers and such were started by other teams' fans. Which is why I asked, because it's typically other team's fans always posting news on the Gen NBA board about us.

It is comical how defensive Heat fans are. The Heat are not winning the title, AGAIN, but that is no reason to be all sensitive. Relax. And Steve Novak is a great shooter. He is lights out but he has never been given siginificant minutes in his career ...good signing overall...

I'm not sure why this is a problem when it's news? I thought signings should be reported no matter what? Travis Outlaw got amnestied. Not huge news but still news, right? BJ Mullens to Bobcats got a thread....so?

Anyways, really good pickup. We needed a new stretch 4 after "Purp-A-Traitor" left. He ends up being a much better shooter than him. Not worried about his lack of rebounding. We'll have someone at the C spot to clean that up.

I've done my fair share of traveling and came to the conclusion that I wouldn't wanna be anywhere else. But you guys are really funny to me, I see clippers fans post as much as they want no matter how.relevant or irrelevant the post may be. I see laker fans post in this forum, about foolish conspiracy theories because the league didn't wanna take that crap of a deal they were trying to give the hornets. But I'm fine with all of that, its just seems to me like people from other cities try to talk down about anything Knicks related on here. Here's a newsflash for you guys.... The Knicks barring something really crazy will be a top five team in this league, they will go far and deep into the playoffs and they will punish a lot of teams in this league. That's a fact. Oh.. Steve Novack, any shooter like that put on a Dantoni team is worth mentioning.

He can come in and play stretch 4 and hit a three pointer or two when needed. Not going to play lockdown D or take anyone to the rim but that is not what we need.

You act like he was signed by the Knicks to be a starter?

Everyone knows he will play a few minutes a game if at all and most nights be9th or 10th off the bench. I dont understand how people have such a fit over a bench player. He is good for what the Knicks need, a spot up shooter to hit a three every now and again when Melo and Amare are being doubled all game.

not having a fit... but if you believe he is a 10th man...why on earth should the rest of us care (ie why is there a thread about him in the main forum)...

and if he is a rotation player... my point stands... lets see what the guy can do with actual minutes... bc he has a very small sample size from which to draw many conclusions.

I remember Jeff Van Gundy saying he's the best shooter he's ever seen and Mark Jackson mocked him, then Steve hit 3 threes in a row. It was pretty funny but I hope he improves his rebounding because shooting wise, he's a keeper.

If Eddy Curry gets a thread and is a 10th man, how is it a problem for this to get a thread? If It was a big deal it would be locked already. People need to quit whining, If it isn't Miami. It's a problem. No sort of direction in this section anymore.

Novak couldnt maintain a .417% if teams built gameplans around him and he shot the 3 on a constiant basis throughout the game.

Comparing ONLY his % too guys like Allen/Miller/Peja/Bird too say hes a better 3 pt shooter is foolish at best

Hmm, shooting almost 5 per game this year and he's at 47%....over his past 5 games, 14ppg, 4.0-7.2 from 3. 56%!!

Knicks have done a great job plucking gems out of nowhere.

The most impressive part of his game is his ability to pump fake, dribble, reset and drill it, and also his ability to drill it with dudes right in his face, fadeaways, anything. He sets his feet in a millisecond after being completely off balance and drills it.

He usually misses 2-3 to start the game and once that 1 shot goes down its all over....you let him shoot he will drill 5 in a row.

Ladies and Gentlemen of PSD, we have just seen the end of the NBA as we know it. With Charlotte acquring BJ Mullens and the Pacers allowing Paul George to grow to 6-10, this deal now moves the world power of balance towards the Eastern Conference. With Amar'e and Chandler down low, and the Orange Hope from Syracuse, Novak will be able to launch bombs at a 100 percent rate, wherever he feels deserves to be punished. He'll save us from the North Korea by launching bombs right into the heart of Pyongyang, breaking the new leaders heart and breaking Korea in Half. Now that the three gods have assembled in the eastern conference, these people named Rose, James, and Howard will be after thoughts. The teams will be so great that the ECF will consist of a three way final played in the skies of mount everest. The winner of the battle of the Gods, will go even higher into the abyss and deal with the Next Jordan and the Mytical beast known as Griffin. The final result will end up creating a new planet where the God Tebow will protect.

Who knew you could see the future.:)

They did accumulate some damn good young core of talent with literally no assets.

Fields - 2nd round pick we got in Lee trade
Harrelson - 2nd round pick we bought
Novak - vet min
Lin - free vet min signing
Shump - mid-late first rounder whos arguably got lotto talent (Corey Brewer was a lotto pick, Shump is already 10x better as a defensive stopper)
JR is 26 and was also free.

These guys should all be Knicks for a long long time. JR sounds like he wants to stay here for a while to and says hes willing to pick up his option next year to do so.

Well,

We have the bi-annual starting at $2m for Novak. He might get higher offers, but will he really leave NY and the system that finally gave him a shot? I doubt it.

JR has the player option, which he said over the ASW he plans on picking up. I'm ok if he leaves though, he's not a great team player.

Davis would have to sign for the vet min again of about $1.4m, but remember he'll still be getting $20m+ from CLE next year, so I doubt money is an issue for him. He keeps saying how its always been his dream to play here and he really is having fun again because of Mike's system. Would he really leave for more money when he's already getting $20m+? Doubt it... but if he does we can still get a backup PG elsewhere. Not the end of the world.

I think Novak is the piece we really need to keep. The only one I see leaving is JR, because I think he's more about the money and I could see a team throwing $5-6m at him.

Agreed. I don't care one way or another with JR. His dunks are amazing but thats about it. The ball definitely goes to him and dies.

If you trade Stat for an expiring you put yourself under the cap and lose the MLE.

So you'd end up with almost the same amount of money to spend, and you lost Stat for nothing.

We might end up resigning all the guys anyway and we can keep stat.

Stat will turn it around, you're not going to find a replacement for him with $4-5m in cap space you save.

If your biggest problem is a guy averaging 17 & 8 we're in good shape. I think stat will be huge come playoff time.

How did that turn out for Williams?

I think Novak is a little smarter than Williams.

And I don't see a team throwing a HUGE amount of money at Novak anyway, maybe $3m? Possible, but I don't see Novak leaving such an ideal situation for a coach he loves, and a team that gave him a shot just for a little extra money. He seems like a very intelligent man, I doubt he's starving for money.

Shawne on the other hand was never the sharpest tool in the shed.

I think Shawne Williams doing what he did works in our favor. The Knicks will gladly remind Novak that Williams left for a minimal pay day and is in a horrible situation where hes not even playing or being used properly - and losing a ton of games in the process.

Mike has shown that certain guys will thrive under him that won't necessarily thrive elsewhere. It really depends on the offers, but if its like 2.5M opposed to 1.9 or w.e he would make with the vet min I think he might take it to stay in a good situation.

Wishful thinking though.

If he was getting payed as a 17-8 guy i have no problem at all. As for the MLE, couldn't we take back something along the lines of Ryan Anderson, Hedo, and maybe another filler, that would still have us over the cap until 2013? I'm no cap expert, man. But i do know that Amar'es contract is a problem.

Its not really a problem at all. Amare has 3 years left on his deal after this. NY is going to be WAY OVER the cap those 3 years, especially after we sign Lin & Fields.

So its not like you can create cap room to sign someone else if you get rid of Amare, you'd be getting rid of him just to get rid of him. I understand he's not a franchise player, but he's still a guy I want on this team, especially come playoff time. Depth doesn't win in the playoffs, stars do, and Amare is a big time proven playoff performer.

I think people get too carried away worrying about how much some guys make, at the end of the day does it really matter to any of us how much Amare makes? Is his contract stopping us from signing other players? No... maybe it stops you from resigning a guy like JR, but is that really worth getting rid of the guy?

Unless the Knicks completely blow up their team, they aren't going to have cap space until Chandler/Melo/Amare contracts come off the books. So let it be, this is the best position NY has been in in a LONG time. Amare isn't hurting us.

Now correct me if I'm wrong, which I frequently am, can't they go above the cap to retain him. If they let him go they will still be over the cap, so would it even make a difference from a cap standpoint of them brining in a veterans minimum?

I think they have early bird rights on fields so they can resign him and go over the cap, but they can also get someone that would produce similarly for the min and go over the cap to sign that vet @ the min.

I actually don't understand why people think he's a good defender... He blows assignments all the freaking time.

On offense he may not be outstanding at any one particulary area, but he is solid in almost every area. Two important things that come to mind are his ability to lead the fastbreak and his improved passing which is above average for his position. Remember who coaches the Knicks. He is more valuable to us than he is to other teams.

Furthermore, forget about the CONTEXT of why he isn't easily replacable, who are these veteran minimum wings you speak of, that can put up a statline of 10-5-3 on near 50% shooting night in and night out. You don't think Fields will get offered more than the veteran minimum? I do. And because we have his birdrights it won't be a problem when it happens.

He's the perfect complimentary player, but i guess he sucks because he doesnt score 20ppg.

Fans that actually follow NY on a regular basis will tell you Fields was one of our best players early on. Him & Chandler were the only ones carrying their weight early in the season.

I remember a stretch of 8 games where Fields averaged 16, 6 & 5. You dont get like him for the vet min, not at 23 years of age where he has room to grow.

but anyway before everyone went off topic, No Amare's contract isn't hurting us.
