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.

The Good, Bad and Ugly from the Atlanta Hawks' Early Season

Nov 2 2014 8:32pm CST | Source: Bleacher Report

The Atlanta Hawks have started the 2014-15 regular season with a 1-1 record. The team lost its first contest in Toronto to the Raptors 109-102 on October 29 and won its home opener on November 1 against the Indiana Pacers 102-92. Neither the Hawks' overall performance nor their record screams "good," "bad" or "ugly"—"average" would be the most appropriate word. But certain player ...

Just where will this promising Raptors start end?

Oct 29 2014 9:49pm CDT | Source: Sportsnet.ca

In 2001-02 some publications tabbed the Toronto Raptors as the favourite to emerge from the Eastern Conference and play in the NBA Finals. A year later Vince Carter and Antonio Davis and the rest were on a team that won 24 games. The fall from the peak of Vinsanity was fast and hard. In 2007-08 the Raptors looked like a good bet to improve on the 47 wins they earned the season before in what seemed like such a promising portent for Bryan Colangelo’s reign as general m ...
