Novak Pre-Draft Camp: Final Evaluation

Steve Novak's performance last week at the NBA pre-draft camp in Orlando solidified his status as a solid second round pick according to NBAdraft.net. Per this evaluation, Novak is the 'best pure shooter in the draft' and was the sixth best player in the camp:

Steve Novak (Marquette) -- 9.33 ppg, 3 rpg, 45% fg%, -- With his college coach Tom Crean here each day rooting him on, Novak was solid although his greatest strength his 3 point shot wasn't hitting at his normal clip (2-8) 25%. Kyle Korver struggled in the predraft camp, but it didn't stop him from being an excellent second round pick. Novak is not able to create shots the way Redick can, but as a pure shooter is the best in the draft.
