NBA Free Agent Rumors: Kyle Korver, Atlanta Hawks Agree on Four-Year, $24M Deal

The Hawks just made one of the best moves in free agency — getting Kyle Korver to come back to Atlanta.

According to ESPN.com’s Marc Stein, Korver and the Hawks agreed to terms Wednesday night on a four-year deal worth an estimated $24 million.

Kover was one of the most sought after free agents on the market and had several teams fighting for his services, most notably Brooklyn, Milwaukee and San Antonio.

The Bucks reportedly offered the 6’7” sharp-shooter a $20 million deal over three seasons, but he turned it down. The Nets were limited to offering a three-year deal worth just under $10 million.

Korver spent last season with the Hawks, averaging 10.9 points, 4.0 rebounds and 2.0 assists, while posting a .461 field-goal percentage and .859 free-throw percentage. He was also the second-best sharp-shooter in the NBA last season, hitting 45.7% of his 3-pointers (Jose Calderon – 46.1%).

Korver also has an active streak of 73 straight regular-season games with a 3-pointer made. It’s going to be great to see him add to that streak in a Hawks uniform next season!
