Only one season has he failed to shoot better than 37 per cent from three-point territory.

It was reported on Saturday by ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski (and h/t Amico Hoops' Colton Jones) that Korver agreed to a one-year, $2.6 million deal with the Milwaukee Bucks (and Wojnarowski noted that the agreement was told to ESPN by Korver's agent, Jeff Schwartz).

According to the ESPN report, Korver had a "tough decision" choosing between the 76ers and the Bucks, but his relationship with Milwaukee coach Mike Budenholzer played a factor. He also was traded to both Memphis and Phoenix this offseason, with the Suns waiving him earlier this month.

Korver, 38, split time last season between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Utah Jazz. Specifically in Korver's case, the Bucks now have one of the best pure shooters the National Basketball Association has ever seen, and the kind of dynamic shooting threat that will make them the envy of teams around the National Basketball Association. Korver made his lone All-Star appearance in 2015 and posted his second- and third-best career scoring average and 3-point percentage in Budenholzer's system.

In 1,174 career games, he has averaged 9.9 points in 25.7 minutes per game.

He's more than due, and with his extensive postseason experience, he should be a quality addition for a good Bucks team that appears to be right there.
