NBA: Atlanta Hawks Agree to 4-Year, $24 M Deal With Kyle Korver

Jul 4 2013, 1:25am CDT | by

Free agent shooting guard Kyle Korver reached a four-year, $24 million deal with the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday.

Free agent shooting guard Kyle Korver reached a four-year, $24 million deal with the Atlanta Hawks on Wednesday. 

This was confirmed by no less than NBA.com's David Aldridge who added the Milwaukee Bucks and Brooklyn Nets also tried to lure the coveted guard prior to him reaching an agreement with his prior team, the Hawks. 

ESPN.com, which first reported the deal, adds the San Antonio Spurs were also interested in vying for his services. The ESPN report also features details of Brooklyn (three years, $10 million) and Milwaukee's (thre years, $21 million) offers, which Korver reportedly turned down.  

In spite of Korver's new deal, contracts can't be officially signed until July 10 when the free agency moratorium is lifted. 

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution's Chris Vivlamore, Korver "drew praise from general manager Danny Ferry and former coach Larry Drew last season for his professionalism, character and competitiveness."

Korver said in April he enjoyed his time in Atlanta and believes Ferry will do great things for the Hawks. 

"I really enjoyed my year here in Atlanta. I enjoyed the team. I enjoyed the organization. I believe Danny Ferry is going to do some great things here. I really think he is. I think it's a great opportunity to bring in guys who are going to play fun basketball. 

"I know the vision that he has, you know the kind of basketball that he likes to watch. I think he is going to bring in those types of guys. I like the same basketball that he likes. I'm very open to coming back here."

Korver is entering his 12th NBA season after previously playing for the Philadelphia 76ers, Utah Jazz and Chicago Bulls. He has career averages of 9.6 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.6 assists. A renowned three-point specialist, he shot .457 from the three-point arc in the 2012-13 NBA season.

Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson's Team USA Experience Will Pay off for Warriors

Of all the NBA teams that could use one more mini-leap from their two best players to launch themselves squarely into the championship conversation, the Golden State Warriors—with Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson—fit the bill best. Luckily for them, the two will have three full weeks of FIBA Basketball World Cup experience at their backs heading into training camp. Entering the tournament ranked No. 1 in the world, Team USA will look to captu ...

Team USA's Klay Thompson Breaks Down the Skills That Make Him a Shooting Star

Aug 27 2014 6:26am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

After a spirited practice at the United States Military Academy at West Point last week, Warriors sharp-shooter Klay Thompson had enough energy to break down a player far less crucial to Team USA's hopes in Spain—mine.    "I see you," Thompson said in assessing this writer's shooting form. "That's not bad." Still, the Warriors sharp-shooter suggested I begin my set-up a bit higher for a quicker release. Coming from one of the best shooters ...

The continuing evolution of DeMar DeRozan

Aug 26 2014 10:21am CDT | Source: Sportsnet.ca

If you wanted any indication of USA Basketball’s opinion of Raptors star wing DeMar DeRozan, consider those who didn’t crack the final roster for the upcoming FIBA World Cup in Spain: Damian Lillard, John Wall, Paul Millsap, Gordon Hayward and Kyle Korver. Some have called it “surprising”, others “well-deserved,” but make no mistake about it: DeRozan’s inclusion on Team USA represents another giant leap forward in what is shaping up to be a rather impressive career.
