Agree completely. Nevertheless, I still expect his role to continue a steady decline. And the OP's question has to do with theoretical trade value, not actual trades. Theoretically, there is in fact a line where the Knicks would receive enough value in return to move Novak.
Fair enough. His minutes being reduced is also a good sign imo.

I can't imagine what Novak's trade value is, but i do know he is needed on this team.
Like I said in another thread, this version of Novak is ok with me.
I wanted him to improve his overall game at the expense of lethal shooting from three that tight defenses take away anyway.
I can' totally live with a 40% three point Novak if he defends good, get a few boards, and at least attempt more than just threes.
He's doing that, imo.
These tough-talking puppies need to get back on the porch before they tussle with the God and wind up underneath the lawn (KG Vs Bargnani)--Andrew Sharp vis Grantland.

I'll keep Novak, thank you very much. Sure against some teams he can disappear because of match ups, but he's such a valuable part of this team. Whenever he's on the court he's contributing because even if he's not hitting 3s, teams are covering him tight and it opens up the paint.

You want to know his trade value but don't want to trade him? So during the first seven games of the season you are already thinking about roster changes. This is such a ballboy thread its not funny. Novak is important. Some games he will play more because of favorable matchups, some games less because of unfavorable matchups. That is the luxury of have a 13 player deep team.

novak is our only pure shooter. imagine we're in a game down 2 or 3 with like 10-20 seconds left with the ball. he's going to be in there. whether he's taking the shot for the win or simply a decoy he serves a purpose. teams must respect his ability to shoot.
as far as his trade value who knows. at this point i think it's certain his value to our team right now is higher than anything we can get in return for him. especially a draft pick which won't help until the future.

Omg, you are acting like Novak needs to play 20 minutes to be effective. He is a 3 POINT SPECIALIST. We can utilize him every now and then to knock down a couple of threes and he can hit the bench afterwards.

The Knicks need some D cause they don't get any. They are a sexually frustrated team needing the D! Where's the Defense!

We need to draw some plays for Novak. He hasn't shot the ball well for his standards this season. Getting him some good looks might get him out of slump.

come on, we got bigger things to worry about than Steve Novak.
He is waht he is.
Every 6-7 games he will just explode for 20 points in 15 minutes and basically ice the game for us. That's insanely valuable.
That's a weapon every team desperately needs

Can't trade Novak. He's untouchable.

novak isnt going anywhere, allows us to space the floor and is a great weapon off the bench.

He's had plenty of good looks, and has been bricking 'em.

He's got to just catch and shoot...he's too good.

So if he's not gonna get minutes when Amare comes back and Camby get's in the mix, why would we trade him? So we can get another player who won't get minutes?
Either way I'm not trading Novak. Id rather have a specialist on the bench than just another body
