"Then, at the beginning, it's a little overwhelming, thinking I've got pressure on me to do A, B, C, and D. But after coming here and them explaining to me-basically, after a week, they were like, 'Channing, this is what we want you to do, and that role will expand the more defenses play you differently.' So I just went from that".
The real value for Atlanta is in Cleveland's draft pick, which is Top 10 protected for 2019 and 2020 before converting into two second rounders in the following years.
While the details of the trade have not been finalized nor announced by the league, Korver didn't play against the New Orleans Pelicans on Thursday and confirmed to reporters after the game that he was indeed moving to the reigning National Basketball Association champions. Meanwhile, the Mavs are 7-1 ATS in their last eight games following a loss, 5-11 ATS in their last 16 against the NBA Southeast and 2-10 ATS in their last 12 home games against a team with a winning road record.
"He's going to be another veteran guy", Love said. But the Hawks, sources said, waived Ryan Kelly on Friday to open up a roster spot in the event they need to make room for both Williams and Dunleavy on their roster. "A lot of friendships", he said. It's where I had all my kids, so it's hard to leave that behind.
The first major trade of the 2016-17 National Basketball Association season went down last week, with the defending champion Cleveland Cavaliers landing sharpshooter Kyle Korver. "I just wouldn't make any assumptions going forward". "He's going to be that guy to try to help you win games and hopefully bring home a championship". He's a flawless fit for the Cleveland offense with their ball-dominant stars.
Kyle Korver #26 of the Atlanta Hawks reacts after hitting a three-point basket against the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game Three of the Eastern Conference Semifinals during the 2016 NBA Playoffs at Philips Arena on May 6, 2016 in Atlanta, Georgia. The NBA released the initial results of fan balloting for the All-Star Game in New Orleans on February 19 and Pelicans F Anthony Davis was ranked No. 4 among frontcourt players in the Western Conference behind Kevin Durant and Zaza Pachulia of Golden State and Kawhi Leonard of San Antonio. "I think he's a better all-around player than people think". He's a better defender than people think, better passer.
And wait until shooting guard J.R. Smith returns from a right thumb injury. They also lost Chris Andersen for the remainder of the season to a torn ACL. While Smith remains out for the foreseeable future, gaining Korver will allow the Cavaliers to continue to space the floor for stars LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love.
Cleveland's 2019 first-round pick is the first one that could go to the Hawks as part of the deal. He turns 36 in March and will be a free agent this summer. Today's not about me. They finalized a trade of Kyle Korver to Cleveland, and at the same time the trade rumors involving Paul Millsap became louder and louder. It's not about what's happening to me next. Opting into that extra year could also land the Hawks more assets in a deal with a team like the Celtics.
