4 Contenders That Should Trade for Kyle Korver

With LeBron James out of town, the Cleveland Cavaliers have little use for the services of veteran Kyle Korver, and have reportedly been exploring deals for him. Here are four teams that would be thrilled to have the sharpshooter on their team. 

4. Oklahoma City Thunder

The Thunder are in win-now mode, and that was further emphasized by their re-signings of Paul George and Jerami Grant. Oklahoma City is still missing a reliable outside shooter besides Alex Abrines, and Korver can supply that. He's a smart player on both ends with experience in big moments. 

3. Philadelphia 76ers

With Ersan Ilyasova off to Milwaukee and Marco Belinelli now in San Antonio, the Sixers can use a shooter. With Ben Simmons in the lineup, Philadelphia will need shooting all around him. Korver would provide experience on a relatively young roster and be able to provide ample assistance when JJ Redick is off the court.

2. Minnesota Timberwolves

The Timberwolves broke their playoff drought and made the postseason for the first time since 2004, but didn't seem to stand a chance against the Houston Rockets in the first round. Minnesota needs more shooting to surround their athletes on the perimeter and Korver can be the perfect low maintenance kind of player for them. 

1. Houston Rockets

Do you really expect the Houston Rockets to not be interested in a shooter like Kyle Korver? The Rockets lost Trevor Ariza to free agency, and they already had a rather thin roster. Korver may not be the most gifted defender, but he won't make mistakes, and will make his perimeter shots when he gets them. The veteran would be a dream fit in D'Antoni's system.
