Steve Novak grew up in Brown Deer and attented Marquette University, so seeing him get to realize a life-long dream and suit up for the Milwaukee Bucks is pretty cool.
After Novak’s time with Milwaukee was tragically cut short to just 20 minutes last season, it’ll be nice for him to get to spend a whole season with the Bucks.
Novak’s best on-court trait is his three-point shooting, which has stayed consistent even when his minutes haven’t. Novak made 46.7 percent of his threes last season, and has made 43.1 of his long-range attempts over his ten season career.
If the Bucks needed somebody that could shoot and only shoot, Novak is their man. He won’t do much else on the floor–over his career he’s taken 8.5 three-pointers compared to just 2.4 two-pointers per 36 minutes, and all six of Novak’s shots taken with the Milwaukee Bucks are threes.
Finally, Novak has been around the block. He’s got experience on lots of different teams, some of which he can hopefully impart on his younger teammates. Plus Novak has no delusions of grandeur–he’s not going to sit around and gripe about his minutes anytime soon (or ever).
