Cavaliers To Acquire Kyle Korver In Trade With Atlanta Hawks

According to Shams Charania of The Vertical, the Cleveland Cavaliers are set to acquire sharpshooting forward Kyle Korver from the Atlanta Hawks.

With recent discussions of Atlanta potentially trading Paul Millsap floating around the NBA world, it seems this may be the first domino to fall for the Hawks.

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.
