Sources: Cavs in talks to acquire Kyle Korver from Hawks

 

Michael C. Wright

ESPN.com | 9:11 PM ET


 

The Cavaliers and Hawks are in deep discussions on a deal that would send veteran shooter Kyle Korver to Cleveland, sources confirmed to ESPN.

The Cavs would send Mo Williams and a protected 2019 first-round pick to Atlanta, and Mike Dunleavy also would be part of the deal, likely being traded to a third team, sources said.

The trade was not finalized Thursday night, and Korver was on the active list for the Hawks' game in New Orleans.

The Vertical first reported the talks between the teams.

In a separate deal, the Cavs are in talks to send their 2017 first-round pick to Portland to reacquire their 2018 first-round pick the Trail Blazers own, a source said. This would enable the Cavs to use their 2019 pick to make the deal with Atlanta.

Korver, who is earning $5.2 million this season in the final year of his contract, is averaging 9.5 points per game and shooting 40.9 percent on 3-pointers. He was an All-Star in 2015.

The Cavs have been looking for depth following the loss of J.R. Smith for three months to a broken thumb. They also lost Chris Andersen for the remainder of the season to a torn ACL. In addition, Kyrie Irving missed his third straight game Wednesday with hamstring tightness, and Kevin Love was out as well with food poisoning that caused him to lose 10 pounds.

"It's slowing up our process because of what we're trying to build," said LeBron James, who also has been ill.

ESPN first reported Sunday that the Hawks had made the decision to field trade calls from interested teams on Korver as well as All-Star forward Paul Millsap and veteran swingman Thabo Sefolosha. All three players can become free agents this summer.

ESPN's Marc Stein contributed to this report.

Mo Williams and a protected 2019? Could we not do any better?

You're not going to get much better for an expiring veteran that has lost a step, and also....

Very likely a third team is eating a deal from Cleveland to lower the tax and free up a roster spot. Hearing a few w/ cap space are talking with Cavs/Hawks.

Also, Millsap could be gone by the end of the weekend. Hearing the Hawks may blow the whole thing up. They want the pieces before Butler is dealt is the word. Also, Bud apparently doesn't love this roster, despite the recent success. 

Just the start. The team is going to get blown to pieces. The little birdie is right, Bud did not want Dwight Howard and was forced to get him.

To be honest once Horford left Korver was always gone. He's the one who told him to leave, and going from playing with Horford to playing with Howard has to weigh heavily on his spirit.

Well with his shooting being some of the worst he's done in over 5 years, you'd think he would have loved having an actual rebounder on the team.. 

but you've made your infatuation with horford known sooo... :rolleyes:

He needs a passing center more than a rebounding center.

Outside of the fast break, Korver got NO open looks in the half court with Howard in. The reason why he did better off the bench was Mike Muscala is a passing center.

And he couldn't create his own shot... sooooo expendable

None of y'all get it at all. It's MUCH easier to create a team around a mobile unselfish center than it is one that isn't really mobile. You need star players at the wing for this to work with Howard, and it's not something you're getting without taking two seasons off from the playoffs.

Otherwise, this isn't going to work. Even if Korver stayed and Millsap resigned, the maximum this team was going to get was 3 straight of more of the same of the 00s-10s era.

Here's the kind of team you need to make this work with today's version of Dwight Howard:

PG - Jrue Holiday
SG - find a version of Klay Thompson
SF - find a version of Kawhi Leonard
PF - Paul Millsap
C - Dwight Howard
