The Atlanta Hawks have traded Kyle Korver to the Cleveland Cavaliers for Mike Dunleavy, Mo Williams and a 2019 first-round pick. Korver is a 35 year-old shooting guard who has played for 4 teams(the 76ers from 2003-2008, the Jazz from 2008-2010, the Bulls from 2010-2012, and the Hawks from 2012-2016). Korver is a one-time all-star and has a career average of 10 points per game and 3.1 rebounds per game. These are definitely not glittery stats, but he has a career three point percentage of .429 and once had 127 games in a row with a three-pointer. Korver plays shooting guard and is a catch and shoot player who only has a career average of 1.8 assists per game. Korver has never had a triple-double in his life and has only had a double-double 7 times. Korver has never averaged more than 15 points in a sesason. We will have to see how this trade plays out but it seems like the Hawks might have the better end of this trade.
