Kyle Korver continues to win at life.

The recently selected Team USA training camp member got another win by being re-elected as vice president of the National Basketball Players Association.

Grantland’s Zach Lowe reports that the Hawks wing player will serve a three-year term after being re-elected.

Korver is a solid veteran in this league who is very well-respected, making him an ideal candidate for the role.

He was great for Atlanta last year, averaging 12.0 points per game on 47 perent shooting from beyond-the-arc.

The National Basketball Player’s Association (NBPA) has had issues since the 2011 lockout with union chief Billy Hunter and unanimously voted to remove Hunter from him position on February 16, 2013, during the NBA All-Star break. Since then, the Players Association has also seen Derek Fisher leave his role as president and be replaced by Chris Paul, and also voted in a new Executive Director to replace Hunter in Washington D.C. Attorney Michele Roberts earlier this week.

Korver should bring some stability to the turbulent NBPA, as he is a re-elected member and not a first-time selection.
