Steve Novak trade to Utah Jazz now official


Last week, the Utah Jazz made a trade with the Toronto Raptors to acquire Steve Novak and a future second round pick to the Jazz in exchange for Diante Garrett.

On Thursday, after the NBA’s moratorium period had been lifted, the trade became official.

The trade for Novak gives the Jazz a “stretch four” power forward that new head coach, Quin Snyder, has been looking for. However, Novak is primarily a role player off the bench, so don’t expect him to see starter minutes with the Jazz.

Notes on Novak posted by the Utah Jazz include:
