Report: Cavs went back on agreement to trade Kyle Korver
The Cleveland Cavaliers are a mess this season, and Kyle Korver was not supposed to be a part of it.
According to an article by The Athletic’s Joe Vardon that was published on Saturday, Cavs GM Koby Altman had an agreement with Korver that if LeBron James ever left the team, the Cavs would let Korver go either by buying him out or trading him. James chose to sign with the Lakers over the summer, leading Korver to ask the Cavs to get rid of him.
According to Vardon, “they refused because, they told him, they wanted him to play and for the team to try and win.”
Korver is owed $7.5 million this season and next. The 37-year-old 3-point specialist is averaging 5.5 points in 15.4 minutes per game this season.
