Veteran marksman Korver waived by Suns; Bucks interested

Veteran wing Kyle Korver was traded from the Jazz to the Grizzlies to the Suns this summer.

As expected, the Phoenix Suns have waived sharpshooting wing Kyle Korver, according to the NBA’s official transactions tracker.

Korver, 38, has been traded twice this offseason — first by the Utah Jazz to Memphis Grizzlies, then by the Grizzlies to the Phoenix Suns.

With the Jazz, Korver was part of the trade centered on point guard Mike Conley Jr. With the Grizzlies, Korver was sent to the Suns in a deal that sent young forward Josh Jackson to Memphis.

Korver is set to clear waivers Wednesday evening and become an unrestricted free agent. The Philadelphia 76ers and Milwaukee Bucks are among the team interested, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.

Also, because Korver was traded twice, he is now eligible to return to the Jazz if both parties are interested in a reunion.

He averaged 8.6 points in 70 games total with the Jazz and Cleveland Cavaliers last season. He is said to be looking to play at least one more season.

  1. Sam…..what’s your thoughts on the Cavs getting in the Westbrook and Adams sweepstake? I’m in favor of taking a shot at them and creating the following core:
    Love
    Westbrook
    Adams
    Clarkson
    Sexton or Garland (have to give one of them up)
    Nance
    Henson
    Windler or Porter (have to give one of them up)

    Here what we give up:
    JR
    TT
    Knight
    Cedi
    Delly
    Two of the following: Sexton, Garland, Windler and Porter.They won’t take Sexton and Garland IMO because they have Alexander.

    The money works. I know they want draft picks but I’m not giving more than 1 first round pick up. Now you justify giving Love the extension because you’ve place talent around him that makes us a playoff team (3 or 4 seed in East) for two or three years.
    We have the contracts to free up almost $70 million in salary by summer of 2020 for Thunder. That’s a huge value that offsets giving up a bunch of number 1’s.

      I think the Cavs should offer any two players not named Kevin Love for Westbrook and get the fans excited again. Or they can keep going in this direction and lose millions. 😉
