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.

Is Klay Thompson Really the Best Two-Way Shooting Guard in the NBA?

Sep 17 2014 11:16am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

With a three-point rocket in his arsenal and the defensive versatility to slide anywhere along the perimeter, Golden State Warriors shooting guard Klay Thompson is among the top two-way players at his position. For Thompson's agent, Bill Duffy, that distinction isn't enough. Duffy, who has until October 31 to negotiate a contract extension for the fourth-year sniper, said his client needs ...

Where Can New York Knicks Find Carmelo Anthony More Scoring Help?

Sep 16 2014 4:26pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

On the NBA's offensive scale of frigid to fiery, New York Knicks scoring forward Carmelo Anthony grades out as inflammable. The 30-year-old is as lethal as point producers come at this level, a 6'8", 235-pound machine with three-point touch, a powerful post game and a vast array of weaponry at all areas in between. But the Knicks need more than Melo. As this franchise traverses its seemingly unending road to re ...

How Team USA Experience Will Develop Andre Drummond Even Further

Sep 11 2014 5:37am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Team USA experience and playing with many of the NBA's top players will bring nothing but positives to center Andre Drummond's development. Just two summers ago, Drummond was competing in the Summer League as an unproven rookie with both extremely high potential and plenty of question marks about his game. Not only did he earn a Team USA tryout in 2014, he nabbed a roster spot on the heavy favorite to take home a FIBA World Cup gold medal.  Drummond ha ...

How Washington Wizards Can Seamlessly Integrate Paul Pierce

Sep 9 2014 7:06am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Washington Wizards made a few key tweaks to their roster this offseason, but none will change what the team looks like on the court more than the move to replace Trevor Ariza on the wing with Paul Pierce.  For the last two seasons, Ariza plied his trade as a catch-and-shoot specialist in Washington, topping out with a 40.7 percent finish from beyond the arc last season. According to SportVU data released by the NBA and STATS LL ...

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

Aug 29 2014 1:50pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

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 ...

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 ...
