Reports: Suns to Waive Kyle Korver

After acquiring the veteran three-point specialist in a trade from the Utah Jazz, it appears that the Phoenix Suns don’t have any plans to keep him on their roster.

Korver, who is signed to a partially guaranteed contract for next season, will apparently be let go by the rebuilding Suns, who don’t seem to have any use for the veteran.

There won’t be any lack of suitors for one of the league’s top sharpshooters, however, as NBA insider Adrian Wojnarowski is already reporting, there will be several teams interested in his services. He has named the Los Angeles Lakers, Philadelphia 76ers, and Milwaukee Bucks as possible landing spots.

Korver has made a career for himself as a dead-eye long range specialist. He had sparingly been used as a starter in his NBA career, but has always posted quality scoring numbers off of the bench.

The 38-year-old averaged 9.3 points per game for the surprising Jazz as a reserve player last season.

Korver could be a fit for several contenders as a veteran scoring option on the bench. Many have speculated that he could look to team up with former Cleveland Cavaliers teammate LeBron James, with whom he is close, with the Lakers.

Korver has until later this summer to make a decision, and the only thing that’s clear now is that his future won’t be in Phoenix.
