The Knicks Have Interest in Steve Novak

From Adrian Wojnarowski:
Should Steve Novak clear waivers after Spurs release, New York will likely sign him to a guaranteed deal for season, sources tell Y!

Truthfully, I don't know all that much about Steve Novak, so I had to do some research.

- He's 6' 10", 245 lbs.
- He went to Marquette and shot the 3-pointer better than Ben Wallace shoots free throws - an incredible 46%
- In the NBA he's shot pretty well, albeit in very limited amount of playing time. His best season came with the Clippers in 2008-09, when he averaged 16.4 mpg, 6.9 ppg on .444 FG% and .416 3FG%

And some miscellaneous facts!
- Steve's favorite snack is Triscuit crackers in cocktail sauce
- The first concert Steve ever went to was a Lou Bega concert because he loved "Mambo #5"
- In his off-time, Steve loves to build hammocks and finger paint

Seems like Steve would try and fill the Shawne Williams' role as a stretch 4 off the bench. With the "room" exception... eh, could be better used. As a veteran's minimum signing, I approve!
