It was announced Monday by Hawks GM Danny Ferry that the Hawks have traded cash considerations to the Chicago Bulls in exchange for guard/forward Kyle Korver.  The 6'7" sharpshooter played college basketball for the Creighton University Bluejays.  He was drafted 51st overall in the 2003 NBA Draft by the New Jersey Nets.  He was traded to the Philadelphia 76ers in a draft night deal.  He has spent time in his NBA career with the 76ers, the Utah Jazz, and with the Bulls.  Last season with the Bulls, he averaged 8.1 points per game and shot 44% from beyond the arc.  Over his career, he has averaged 9.5 points per game and shot 41% from downtown.  I think this was a great trade by the Hawks.  They had a gap at the small forward position, and bringing in Korver fills that gap.  Looking at the roster now, Korver or DeShawn Stevenson will probably start at the three, and it will most likely depend on whether Coach Larry Drew wants an offensive-minded player (Korver) in the starting lineup or a defensive player (Stevenson) in the starting lineup.  Korver can really space the floor, because the defense doesn't want to let him get an open shot.  Great work yet again, Danny Ferry!  I am excited to have Korver on the team, and I wish him luck in his future in Atlanta.
