Korver would be 39 in the final year of the deal, though it’s unclear if the contract will include a team or player option.
Korver, a career 43 percent shooter from 3-point range, averaged 10.1 points per game last season. The Cavs acquired him in a trade with the Hawks in which they sent Mike Dunleavy, Mo Williams and a protected 2019 draft pick to Atlanta.
LeBron James called Korver out by name after a loss in the playoffs back in May, but obviously LeBron likes having Korver as a teammate. The Cavs generally don’t make any moves that James is opposed to.
