Spurs Novak likely to accept offer to play in Spain or Russia

It looks like Steve Novak will be playing overseas during the lockout.

According to Gery Woelfel of the Journal-Times, the San Antonio Spurs backup forward plans to play in either Spain or Russia if the NBA’s lockout extends into the regular season.

Should he pursue his plans to play abroad, Novak would be the second player on the Spurs 2010-2011 roster to play overseas during the lockout.

Backup point guard Chris Quinn has already signed to play for BC Khimki in Russia on a one-year, $1 million deal.

Novak, appeared in 23 regular season games for the Spurs last season averaging 3.5 points on 52.5 percent shooting from the field, including 54.8 percent from the 3-point line.

He is an NBA veteran and has played for four different NBA teams (Houston Rockets, LA Clippers, Dallas Mavericks and the Spurs).

For his career, Novak is averaging 4.0 point and 1.1 rebounds on 44.3 percent field goal shooting, 41.7 percent from beyond the arc.

  1. Novak to play in Spain? Nooooo… My dreams of having another Bonner-Novak frontcourt will never come into reality! 😀

  2. Playing overseas will be perfect opportunity for Novak to shine! I’m sure international scouts while start noticing him, once he keeps hitting those 3s.

  3. Good luck Steve! Come back to the Spurs after one season, Bonner needs you! LOL! In all seriousness, this guy can shoot the ball and has played decent basketball in his short stint with the Spurs.

  4. I think Novak will earn more money overseas, this a good opportunity for him to show what he’s got in international competition.
