The Milwaukee Bucks and new head coach Larry Drew are going hard after his former players he coached last season with the Atlanta Hawks — the latest being sharp-shooter Kyle Korver.

According to RealGM.com, the Bucks are offering Korver a three-year, $20 million deal.

The Brooklyn Nets were courting Korver for the past couple of days, but they cannot match the lucrative deal Milwaukee is offering so they have since removed themselves from the Korver sweepstakes.

The Bucks have also already shown interest in Hawks players Jeff Teague and Josh Smith, now Korver too.

Milwaukee traded away their sharp-shooter J.J. Redick on Tuesday to the Clippers in a three-team trade and are now on the hunt to find someone to replace Redick’s shooting prowess. None fit the bill better than Kyle Korver.

San Antonio is also believed to be in the mix for the 3-point assassin, sources say.
