Steve Novak Joins Mavs For Training Camp

Yesterday’s signing of Brian Cardinal did not signal the end of the Mavericks’ summer moves, it appears, as they have invited three-point specialist Steve Novak, a 6-foot-10 forward, to camp, according to Eddie Sefko of the Dallas Morning News. Novak joined Cardinal and Bobby Simmons, another free agent, last week for workouts with the Mavs, who must have liked what they saw.

Sefko says Dallas likes Novak because he “plays a similar style” to Dirk Nowitzki, as a tall forward with range extending beyond the arc. Novak sure can shoot the three-ball, with a career mark of 40.3 percent, but he can’t do much else. As Tom Haberstroh of HoopData.com points out, via Twitter, Novak only attempted one layup last season, in 364 minutes.
