Wikipedia hack predicts Kyle Korver will end up with Lakers
Kyle Korver was part of the trade that sent Mike Conley from the Memphis Grizzlies to Utah on Wednesday, but he will almost certainly be bought out by the rebuilding Jazz. If and when that happens, fans are already convinced they know where the sharpshooter will end up.
Korver and LeBron James played together with the Cleveland Cavaliers, and LeBron has said the 38-year-old was one of his favorite teammates. The Los Angeles Lakers happen to have a need for an outside shooter like Korver, which explains why someone hacked Korver’s Wikipedia page immediately after Wednesday’s trade and wrote that he plays for the Lakers.

While he said after the season that he would consider retirement, Korver is reportedly planning to play at least one or two more years.

Korver ending up with the Lakers makes plenty of sense, as they have already had a huge offseason and could use a complimentary piece like him. The Wikipedia hack will probably end up being accurate before long.
