NBA free agent rumors: Bucks signing Kyle Korver to 1-year-deal

The Bucks upgraded their perimeter game Saturday, signing free agent sharpshooter Kyle Korver to a one-year deal worth $2.6 million, according to ESPN.

The 6-7 Korver is 38 now and his days as a regular starter are behind him, but he can still knock down the 3. A career 42.9% shooter from long range, he had a down year by his standards last season, shooting 38.4%, but that’s still above the league average.

According to the ESPN report, Korver had a “tough decision” choosing between the 76ers and the Bucks, but his relationship with Milwaukee coach Mike Budenholzer played a factor. Budenholzer coached Korver in Atlanta from 2013 through 2016 when he made an All-Star team and had some of the best years of his career. 

Korver split time between the Cavaliers and Jazz last season, averaging 8.6 points per game.
