"Backup forward Steve Novak was waived by the Spurs on Monday, shortly before the team’s scrimmage at the AT&T Center.

Novak had been signed to a contract on Thursday. He played on the team for 23 games last season, averaging 4.0 points in 8.6 minutes per game.

His departure comes on the heels of Antonio McDyess’ retirement earlier this season.

Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Novak likely is headed to New York with a guaranteed contract."

I like it. Gives Jorts and Jerome more time to mature, and Novak can really stroke the three. Will get the vet min, so we can still use the mini-MLE on Stevenson, Redd or Posey. Sign me up.
