    The team announced the signing Thursday (Friday, Manila time). The 38-year-old guard was waived July 7 by Phoenix — which acquired him in a trade with Memphis — making him a free agent.

    Korver had been traded to Memphis by Utah, where he played most of last season.

Kyle is a highly respected player and person both on and off the court and we are thrilled to welcome him and his family to the Bucks."
