Salt Lake City, UT (SportsNetwork.com) - The Utah Jazz acquired forward Steve Novak and a draft pick from the Toronto Raptors in exchange for guard Diante Garrett on Thursday.

Novak averaged 3.3 points in 54 games last season with the Raptors.

He is the sixth-most accurate three-pointer shooter in NBA history and owns career averages of 5.0 points and 1.4 rebounds over 414 career games in eight seasons with Houston, the Los Angeles Clippers, Dallas, San Antonio, New York and Toronto.

His career .432 three-point percentage is second only to Golden State's Stephen Curry (.440) among all active players, while his career .892 free throw percentage would rank fourth if he had enough attempts to qualify.

Garrett averaged 3.5 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 71 games last season with Utah.

The pick acquired by the Jazz was originally New York's 2017 second-round selection.
