The Cavaliers have had success in recent history of acquiring forgotten role players, such as Channing Frye, and turning them into productive players. With J.R. Smith being out indefinitely with an injury, Korver will provide Cleveland with another hot shooting option.
Kyle Korver is averaging 9.5 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 2.3 assists while shooting 44% from the field and 41% from three with the Atlanta Hawks this season.
