A couple of weeks back, the Thunder sent point guard D. J. Augustin and marksman Steve Novak to the Nuggets, ostensibly to obtain Randy Foye, but mostly to cut payroll and the luxury tax imposed thereupon. Denver released Novak, who then signed for the rest of the season with Milwaukee.
And then this:
The Bucks have announced that Steve Novak will miss the rest of the season with a sprained MCL, tweets Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today. The newly acquired small forward suffered the injury during Saturday’s game with the Pistons.
Novak appeared in seven games for Oklahoma City and three for Milwaukee this season. He will regain free-agent status at the end of the year.
