Steve Novak has agreed to a four-year, $15 million contract with the New York Knicks, his agent Mark Bartlestein said Monday. Assuming he fulfills the length of his contract, Novak will stick more than two years with the same team for the first time in his six-year career.

Novak joined the Knicks last season after being waived from the San Antonio Spurs in December. He appeared in 54 games averaging 8.8 points in 18.9 minutes per game. He shot 47.2 percent from beyond the 3-point arc, and recorded more than 200 3-point attempts in a season for just the second in his career and first time since the 2008-09 season with the Los Angeles Clippers.
Novak's role on the Knicks expanded as the season wore on. He scored a season-high 25 points on April 17 in a 118-110 win over the Boston Celtics.
