Free agent swingman Kyle Korver will officially return to the Cleveland Cavaliers, as the team made the announcement Wednesday.
While NBA teams don’t release contract details, Amico Hoops earlier reported that Korver’s deal is for three years and in the vicinity of $22 million.
Korver, 36, will be pushing 40 years old when the deal is complete, but as a spot-up shooter, age shouldn’t be a major issue.
He came over in a mid-season trade with the Atlanta Hawks, and averaged 10.1 points on 46 percent shooting in 67 total games. His scoring dipped to 5.8 points per game in the playoffs.
The third year of Korver’s contract is only partially guaranteed, according to reports.
