As the Cavaliers season is essentially all but done with their poor start, their line up is continuing to crumble with the team looking to trade their main assets to set the franchise up for the future.

Per Gary Woelfel of Woelfel’s Press Box, Kyle Korver has four teams that are currently interested in him, the Milwaukee Bucks, the Philadelphia 76ers, the Oklahoma City Thunder and the Los Angeles Lakers.

“You know how Bud likes shooters,” an NBA executive said, referring to Bucks head coach Mike Budenholzer. “It’s like the old adage: You can’t have enough shooters. That’s the way he feels.’”

The Bucks aren’t the only team interested in Korver’s services. Sources said Philadelphia, Oklahoma City and Los Angeles Lakers are also among the Korver suitors.

One of the shooters who has piqued Budenholzer’s curiosity is one of his former players when he coached the Atlanta Hawks: Kyle Korver.

The Bucks aren’t the only team interested in Korver’s services. Sources said Philadelphia, Oklahoma City and Los Angeles Lakers are also among the Korver suitors.

The fact that there are four clubs that are currently after the services of Korver is a positive sign for the Cavaliers who are very much keen on moving on the 37-year-old. The Cavaliers are still hopeful for the best case scenario of a first round pick for giving up the shooting guard.

However, due to Korver coming to the end of his career at the age of 37, it’s very unlikely that the Bucks or any of the other three clubs interested in him will give up a first-round pick.

In his first eleven games this season, Korver is currently just averaging 5.5 points per game and 1.4 assists per game. The four teams that are interested in Korver are teams that need a marksman and if they are worried Korver may slip to free agency and get to choose himself then these teams may be willing to part way with a late first round pick. Teams like the Los Angeles Lakers may have a better chance of picking up Korver if he gets to choose clubs considering his former teammate and good friend, LeBron James is there.

Kyle Korver has been known for his long-range shooting over his career, scoring over 2,000 3-pointers with an incredible 3-point shooting percentage of 43.1. Even though he approaches the end of his career, Korver still has a lot of great value for a side who is looking for an extra boost of offense.
