    CLEVELAND completed the acquisition of gunner Kyle Korver, boosting a backcourt that is now missing JR Smith although LeBron James is still expecting the Cavaliers to make a move to sign a playmaker.

    The Cavaliers sent Mike Dunleavy, Mo Williams and a 2019 first-round draft pick on Saturday to Atlanta (Sunday, Manila time),to land Korver.

    "We are extremely pleased to be able to add a player and person the caliber of Kyle Korver to our Cavs family," Cavaliers general manager David Griffin said in a statement.

    "Among the most prolific and dynamic 3-point shooters in NBA history, a selfless and team-first competitor, Kyle brings all of the elements of Cavs DNA that we covet on and off the floor."

    Korver has a 43 percent 3-point shooting percentage in 14 seasons in the NBA.

    That means a big boost especially with Smith out injured, but James noted the squad could still improve by making more deals.
