Kyle Korver Signs With Milwaukee Bucks
MILWAUKEE, Wis. – The Milwaukee Bucks have agreed to a one-year contract with former Jazzman Kyle Korver.
The deal is expected to be worth $2.6 million.
Korver was traded to the Memphis Grizzlies along with Grayson Allen and Jae Crowder for Mike Conley.
Korver had a tough decision between Sixers and Bucks but relationship and history with Mike Budenholzer certainly played a major factor in Korver’s choice. https://t.co/94WinjWJ38

The Grizzlies sent Korver to the Phoenix Suns before waiving the longtime NBA sharpshooter.
According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Korver narrowed his decision to sign with either the Milwaukee Bucks or the Philadelphia 76ers.
His decision was tough, but Korver decided to reunite with his head coach from when he played for the Atlanta Hawks, Mike Budenholzer.
Many thought he was going to sign with the Los Angeles Lakers and play with LeBron James again.
Korver will be reunited with former Jazzman Wesley Matthews, who signed as a free agent with the Bucks earlier this month. He will also be back with George Hill, who played with Korver when they were both with the Cleveland Cavaliers two years ago.
He just finished his second stint with the Jazz after Utah acquired him early last season from the Cleveland Cavaliers in exchange for Alec Burks.
This past season, Korver averaged 9.1 points per game and shot 38 percent from downtown.
