Korver-to-Sixers deal ‘possible,’ but ‘far from certain’

The potential deal that would send Kyle Korver from the Cavs to the Sixers is far from a certainty.

Word spread Thursday about the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Philadelphia 76ers having discussions regarding a potential deal that would send Kyle Korver to Philadelphia and Jerryd Bayless to Cleveland, as first reported by Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer.

However, Marc Stein of The New York Times reported early Friday morning the deal is anything but a certainty. Korver began his NBA career with the Sixers, for whom he played five seasons.

There have been rumors of the Cavs looking to move Korver since last season ended. He’ll make $7.5 million next season and has $3.4 million guaranteed in 2019.

Korver averaged 9.2 points in 73 games this past season and shot 45.9 percent from the field and 43.6 percent from deep.

Bayless has one year left on his contract and is set to make $8.6 million in 2018-19. The 29-year-old appeared in 39 games with the 76ers last season, averaging 7.9 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.4 assists.

  1. Keep Korver. Better player. Way up the totem pole all time compared to Bayless. Plus Kyle has been teaching the youngsters about shot selection and other shooting gems.
