Steve Novak Is Ready For His Closeup

Soon-to-be Marquette graduate Steve Novak is hitting the job market later this month, meeting with prospective employers on both an individual and group basis hoping to find the best fit for his skill set.

Todd Rosiak updates readers on Novak's pursuit of the NBA today, noting:

The 6-foot-10 forward will begin his journey toward professional basketball in earnest on Tuesday, when he travels to Washington for a four-day boot camp of individual instruction and personal training arranged by his agent, Doug Neustadt.

Shortly thereafter, Novak will begin crisscrossing the United States for a series of workouts with individual teams, beginning with the Houston Rockets on May 24. From there, he'll also work out for the Los Angeles Clippers, Los Angeles Lakers, Memphis Grizzlies, Minnesota Timberwolves and hometown Milwaukee Bucks.

Novak is expecting another six or seven teams to bring him in for workouts as well.

Draft Express currently has Novak going in the early second round as does NBADraft.net.

Good luck, Steve. And congratulations on earning your degree.
