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.

ATLANTA — Atlanta Hawks management had to spend too much of the off-season saying "We’re sorry." Hawks players have a different message in training camp: "We’re better." Optimism is based on improved depth and a better understanding of second-year coach Mike Budenholzer’s ball-movement system. Twelve players return from last season’s team that lost a tough first-round playoff series to Indiana. All-Star centre Al Horford, recovering from a torn right pe ...
