3 reasons the Sixers should trade for Kyle Korver

Three years ago, Kyrie Irving was dealing with a knee injury throughout the 2015 playoffs, which caused him to miss two games in the Eastern Conference finals.

At-the-time teammate and undisputed best player in the world LeBron James was reportedly not a fan of that.

However, that does not mean they aren't open to trading some of the veterans still remaining on their roster.

It is kind of shocking to see Cleveland ask for a first-round pick because even though Korver can shoot the ball exceedingly well, he is still 37 years old.

Only Irving can tell how bad the injury really was, but James felt like his then-co-star could have done more to try and play through it. Korver is getting older and his contract is only partially guaranteed through two seasons. But only $3.4 million of that $7.5 million for 2019-20 is guaranteed, so overall Korver would not be a huge financial burden for most teams.


At the start of free agency, Philadelphia lost Marco Belinelli to the San Antonio Spurs, who signed the veteran guard to a two-year, $12 million deal.

Rumors and what the Cavaliers are saying publicly have differed regarding whether Love may be on the move.

The Cavaliers traded for Korver prior to the 2017 trade deadline. That has obviously happened, so Hill is at minimum on the trade block with a 2018-19 salary of $19 million.

Without LeBron James, who did an incredible job at finding Korver no matter where he was beyond the arc, it may be tough for the veteran to produce on a nightly basis on a team that will begin to rebuild sooner rather than later.
