The Atlanta Hawks are close to trading forward Kyle Korver to the Cleveland Cavaliers. The players involved going back to the Hawks are not known at this time.
Korver joins the reigning NBA Champions. He is a three-point specialist and will likely come off the bench for his new team. He will likely replace J.R. Smith, who had surgery in Dec. and will miss extended time.
The Cavaliers are not making this move for now. They’re making this move for the postseason when Korver could potentially have his biggest impact.
This will be the fourth team that he has played for his in National Basketball Association career. He previously played for the Philadelphia 76ers, Utah Jazz and the Hawks.
The Hawks are rebuilding and would like to start over. They are also interested in moving Paul Millsap as well.
Dwight Howard, their big off-season addition, could be moved as well.
The 35-year-old has played in 32 games with the Hawks this season, including 21 starts. Korver is averaging 9.5 points, 2.8 rebounds, 2.3 assists, 0.7 steals and 0.4 blocks. The three-point specialist is also shooting 40.9% from three-point range.
This is also Korver’s second trade in his career. He was also traded in 2007, as he was dealt on Dec. 29, 2007 when he was traded by the 76ers to the Jazz for Gordan Giriček and a 2010 first-round draft pick (Trevor Booker).
