So they were going to flat out cut him in a week if they couldn't trade him, but instead they get the best three point shooter in basketball/multiple picks/a nice older big man to help coach their young bigs and give them a nice boost.
Novak is a sniper from deep. Knicks weren't a good fit for him since Melo dominates the ball.
Novak is useless. Cause any team with a competent coach knows to just have the man who is guarding him press up on him. He cant dribble and he cant create a shot for himself. The only thing he can do is shoot when blatantly wide open.
That is why he got that stupid contract last off season he got alot of open shots cause he was just some scrub nobody cared about. Last season when other teams knew who he was he sucked.
i don't think Derozan is that bad for the Clippers. it's also become apparent that gm's don't value bledsoe nearly as high as his perceived value. Derozan is overpaid but for a team as far over the cap as LAC how much does it really matter
