Kyle Korver Trade Rumor: Lakers & Other NBA Teams Very Interested In Cavaliers Sharpshooter

Cleveland Cavaliers veteran Kyle Korver is rumored to have several suitors this season.

The 37-year-old has made a living from beyond the arc and is still one of the most deadly shooters from range in the NBA.

And, with the Cavs keen on moving him on as they look to their younger players, he is said to be a target for some big teams.

Per Gery Woelfel of Woelfel's Press Box, the Los Angeles Lakers, Philadelphia 76ers, Oklahoma City Thunder and Milwaukee Bucks are all among several teams who are thought to be very interested in getting the sharpshooter on their books.

The Cavs, though, want a first-round draft pick in exchange for Korver and the general notion is that they aren't going to get one as many teams consider their asking price too high.

The Bucks, in particular, are reportedly very keen on working out a deal that would see guard Matthew Dellavedova join them as well. They are also thought to be prepared to add one of the likes of Thon Maker, D.J. Wilson or Christian Wood to a trade package.

Meanwhile, the Lakers could use a long-range shooter. And it would benefit them that LeBron James was Korver's teammate before he decided to make the switch to L.A.

Since the addition of Tyson Chandler, the team hasn't lost a single game and appear to be much improved following their weak start to the campaign. However, it's a long road ahead and they would likely appreciate as much help as they could get from the perimeter.

Admittedly, Philly doesn't appear to be a worse shooting team since the loss of Robert Covington and Dario Saric, with JJ Redick and Landry Shamet doing just about enough where outside shooting is concerned.

The addition of Jimmy Butler is obviously a plus, yet Korver could be a terrific embellishment.

What This Means

Whoever lands Korver, if he is traded at all, stands to gain a lot from bringing him in this season. The former Atlanta Hawks man, a one-time NBA All-Star, still has a lot to offer.

It appears that the Lakers are the ones who need him most and an arrival in L.A. could be very beneficial to Luke Walton, who is still under much scrutiny despite the recent improvement.
