Knicks reach agreement to retain Steve Novak
Knicks and Novak come to agreement on 4-year, $15 million deal to keep the shooter in Madison Square Garden.
Novak gained immense popularity last season as a spread-the-floor shooter able to knock down shots, especially during the Jeremy Lin "Linsanity" stretch. He and Lin shared a keen awareness of each other's play and Novak punished teams committing inside on Lin or Carmelo Anthony with dagger 3-pointers.
But he was limited in the playoffs, unable to get on the floor due to his defensive issues. As a power forward, he struggles with bigger players and as a small forward he can't contain on the perimeter. But as a shooter, it's hard to find someone better. Novak shot 47 percent from 3 on 282 attempts last season.
Novak also became popular for co-opting Aaron Rodgers' "Discount Double-Check" championship belt celebration after making a big shot.
