But at this point Steve Novak has no guarantees he will return. The 6-foot-10 forward and former Marquette star is a free agent and is waiting to see how the Bucks will fill out their 15-man roster. “The A priorities have to take place,” Novak said Tuesday. “There have been conversations that have gone on with guys like Dwyane Wade and other big free agents, and those have to happen first. We understand that. What can happen contract-wise has to rely on those other signings, so we’re being patient. We have very open dialogue at this point. It’s good. We understand this is just part of the process.”

“Novak is a guy we thought was going to help in that department,” Kidd said. “Hopefully we can re-sign him. We liked what he did briefly on the floor, but we also enjoyed what he did for us off the floor, even being hurt. That’s what a vet does. We would all love to have him back. That kind of threat is what we need as a team to have any kind of success.”

The 32-year-old Novak has gone through an emotional time this season, being deeply affected by the tragedy that hit Oklahoma City assistant coach Monty Williams and the entire Thunder team. Novak was with the Thunder when Williams’ wife, Ingrid, died Feb. 10 of injuries suffered in a car crash in Oklahoma. “I’ll be honest,” Novak said in an interview at the Bucks training facility. “I haven’t had some kind of low point from this (injury). The injury backed up to being in Oklahoma City and I was with Monty Williams. He was going through an extremely tough time. “Life was put into perspective very clearly just a few weeks before (the injury). I think that really helped me, the things he said that day (at Ingrid’s funeral service). Just the things that happened were so powerful.”
