The Bucks have added a quality piece to bolster their shooting depth heading into the 2019-20 season.
Veteran sharpshooter Kyle Korver has signed a one-year deal with Milwaukee, who had been searching for a sharpshooter to compliment the rest of their stacked roster.

Korver has earned himself the reputation of being one of the best 3-point shooters in the NBA throughout his 16-year career, boasting a career 3-point percentage of 42.9%. He's led the league in three-point shooting four separate times since he entered the league.
His decision reportedly came down to the Philadelphia 76ers, the team he started his career with, and the Bucks, with his relationship with former Hawks and current Milwaukee head coach Mike Budenholzer reportedly impacting his decision.
His accuracy took a noticeable dip during his stint with the Utah Jazz last year. After posting a 46.3% shooting mark from downtown in 16 games with the Cavaliers, he was traded to the Jazz and finished the season shooting just 39.7% from beyond the arc, his lowest mark in a decade.
Still, his numbers are more than serviceable, and when he's coupled with the likes of Giannis Antetokounmpo and Khris Middleton, the Bucks will have plenty of options to slice and dice their opponents on offense.
