Our player preview series is back here at SDS. Today, we break down expectations for Hawks shooting guard, Kyle Korver.

Training camp has officially begun for the Atlanta Hawks. This team’s journey to answer the many questions about themselves has begun, as well.

One of the big questions concerning the Hawks is the production of sharpshooter, Kyle Korver. After a superhuman effort in the 2014-2015 season, Korver’s production regressed significantly. Whether it be because of injuries or defenses adjusting to his style, Korver’s offense needs to get back on track in order for the Hawks to contend in the Eastern Conference.

At age 35, Korver is entering the final year of his contract and a season that will determine his future in the league. It may be unreasonable to expect a return to his 2014-2015 form, but many would like to see Korver’s floor spacing become elite again.

In this preview, we will discuss the possibilities and expectations for Korver. Which version of him will we get? Let’s break it down.
