ANALYSIS: Watching him stroke long-range shot after long-range shot and taking a close look at his statistics reveal that Novak is the best outside shooter in this year's draft. A career 46 percent three-point shooter and a 93 percent free-throw shooter, Novak's lifetime three-point shooting percentage and free-throw percentage are higher than fellow sharpshooter J.J. Redick, who finished his career shooting 41 percent from three-point range and 91-percent from the line. Novak only missed 18 free throws his entire college career. Novak had a lot to lose playing at the pre-draft Portsmouth Invitational if he did not shoot well, considering that is his primary strength. No one is going to draft him to defend or post up, because he does both poorly. But Novak continued to shoot well and made the All-Portsmouth first team, averaging 16 points and six rebounds, while shooting 46 percent from three-point land. His height and smooth shooting mechanics allow him to get his shot off and should continue to allow him to do it in the NBA. In college, 73-percent of Novak's shot attempts were three-pointers, and he will have no problem shooting from NBA three-point range. He connected on six three-pointers in a game nine times his senior season, and he averaged 17.5 points per game. However, shooting is where it starts and ends with Novak, though he has improved his rebounding by gradually getting stronger throughout college. He averaged a career-best 5.9 rebounds last season. He is not a good athlete and sometimes struggles against athletic defenders. But he does seem to step up to his competition. Last season, he scored a career-high 41 points in a win over Connecticut. Because of his outstanding shooting ability, Novak will be drafted in the early-to-mid second round and expect him to be on an opening day roster.
