Spurs signing Novak to 10-day contract

Steve NovakThe San Antonio Spurs wasted little time in adding a new player to the roster after Larry Owens rejoined the Tulsa 66ers this weekend.

According to Jonathan Givony of DraftExpress, the Spurs will be signing forward Steve Novak to a 10-day contract.

Novak recently had a two-game stint with the Reno Bighorns of the D-League, averaging 18.5 points on 68 percent shooting from the field and 64 percent from beyond the arch.

Novak has NBA career averages of 40 percent on three-pointers and seems to be in the mold of Matt Bonner, so he should provide the Spurs with some extra depth and shooting help off the bench until Bonner returns to the lineup.

The signing is expected to be official tomorrow. With the addition, the Spurs roster will be at 13 players.
