Hes back in Utah!  :D

So glad to not have to hear more Korver rumors, his defense is too horrible

Seems like a good trade for both teams.  Korver is a better more consistent version of Burks so they upgrade and Cavs get a younger more athletic SG and a couple of 2nd's to take flyers on.  I guess those Korver for Fultz rumors didn't have much substance.

I feel Korver would've been a good pick up for the Celts to add some scoring off the bench.

Oh well.

I am not sure Korver can play in the playoffs due to a total lack of defense. He could be a good situational shooter but he's 38.

Oh well.

Same but I'm also not surprised either. He was going to be a great addition for a ton of teams out there and there would be some who could trade for him (whereas in our case, it'd be hard since we'd have to give up someone like Morris to help with the salary-matching part which would be stupid). Would have hoped he could have been bought-out but Utah jumped quickly on him and understandably so.

I still wouldn't be opposed to adding someone like Jamal Crawford (via trade or buyout). As we saw especially in ECF Game 7, you NEVER have enough scoring and sometimes a scoring spark off the bench can be real useful.
