IS Kyle Korver headed to a contender?
The veteran NBA sniper could be set for another move as the Phoenix Suns are planning to buy out Korver’s contract after recently getting him in a trade from the Memphis Grizzlies.
Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported the development on Thursday, Manila time in a deal that saw Korver getting traded to the Suns along with Jevon Carter for Josh Jackson, DeAnthony Melton, and two future second-round picks.
The move comes less than a month after the Utah Jazz traded Korver to the Grizzlies, then was shipped to the Suns, who are apparently not keen on keeping the 38-year-old wingman.
