Novak works out for the Bucks

Here's a few articles on Steve Novak's latest job interview:

Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel offers perspectives from the Bucks' Dave Babcock.

"I think he's a 'tweener,' " said Babcock, who listed Orlando's Pat Garrity and former Houston sharpshooter Matt Bullard as players Novak most closely resembles.

"I don't think he's a 2. He's a shooter. You can play him as a 3, or you can play him as a pick-and-pop 4, where you put him in pick-and-rolls and you make them guard him and he spreads out the defense."

Colin Fly of the AP covers Novak as well. Read about it here, an excerpt appears below
Novak, from Brown Deer, Wis., said he's been told he'll be picked anywhere from the late first round to not at all.

"It's hard to know," Novak said. "I don't go searching for things. I know that it's really going to be hugely dependent on my workouts and what I do and that kind of thing. So I don't try to get to wrapped up because when it comes down to it, it comes to the workouts and proving to the scouts I can play at that level."
