The Atlanta Hawks have traded Kyle Korver to the Cleveland Cavaliers. In exchange, the Hawks acquired Mike Dunleavy Jr. and a 2019 first-round pick.

It is expected that Dunleavy Jr. will then be traded to a third team, who has not been mentioned yet.

This is reportedly not the only deal the Cavaliers have made on Thursday night. They also traded their 2017 first-round draft pick to the Portland Trail Blazers for their 2018 first-round pick.

The 35-year-old has played in 32 games with the Hawks this season, including 21 starts. He will replace J.R. Smith, who is out for a while following surgery in Dec.

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.

The 36-year-old Dunleavy Jr. has played in 23 games with the Cavaliers, including two starts. He was averaging 4.6 points, 2.0 rebounds, 0.9 assists, 0.3 steals and 0.1 blocks.

Dunleavy Jr. was traded to the Cavaliers in the summertime after playing for the Chicago Bulls for the past three seasons. Dunleavy Jr., along with Vladimir Veremeenko was traded to the Cavaliers for Albert Miralles on July 7, 2016.

This is the first-time since Jan. 16, 2007 that Dunleavy Jr. was traded when he was traded by the Golden State Warriors, along with Ike Diogu, Keith McLeod, and Troy Murphy, to the Indiana Pacers for Al Harrington, Stephen Jackson, Šarūnas Jasikevičius and Josh Powell.

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).
