The Milwaukee Bucks have added veteran presence and shooting to their roster.
Shooting guard Kyle Korver will join the team on a one-year deal, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Korver had a tough decision between Sixers and Bucks but relationship and history with Mike Budenholzer certainly played a major factor in Korver’s choice. https://t.co/94WinjWJ38

Since entering the league in 2003, Korver has been known as one of the best sharp-shooters in the league. Korver has played for multiple teams, most recently the Cleveland Cavaliers and Utah Jazz.
Korver puts up career averages of 10 points per game, with a 44 percent field goal percentage and 43 percent from three.
By joining the Bucks, Korver is reunited with Coach of the Year Mike Budenholzer, who coached Korver during his time with the Atlanta Hawks.
Milwaukee lost both Malcolm Brogdan and Nikola Mirotic this offseason, two of the team’s best three-point shooters. Korver gives the Bucks another shooter to surround Giannis Antetokounmpo, bolstering their roster in hopes of making a title run next season.
