Cavs, Lakers among those eyeing Korver
The Cleveland Cavaliers are expected to make an offer to re-sign shooting guard Kyle Korver when NBA free agency begins at 12:01 a.m. Saturday, according to a report from cleveland.com.
League sources told Amico Hoops the San Antonio Spurs, Los Angeles Clippers and Los Angeles Lakers also have an interest in Korver. Cleveland.com added the Milwaukee Bucks and New Orleans Pelicans to that list.
Korver, 36, is still considered a reliable perimeter spot-up shooter who keeps himself in excellent condition.
He arrived in a mid-season trade with the Atlanta Hawks and spent 32 games with the Cavs last season, averaging 10.1 points on 49-percent shooting off the bench.
Korver's scoring average dipped to 5.8 points per game in the playoffs.
- In other news, league sources told Amico Hoops that the Spurs and several others have an interest in Cavs' draft-and-stash swingman Cedi Osman. But while the Cavs have talked about Osman with several teams, they have held no such discussions yet with the Spurs, sources said.
