Earlier this month, the Phoenix Suns officially waived guard Kyle Korver, paving the way for him to become a free agent.
Phoenix saved just over $4 million by waiving Korver, who reportedly had his eyes on three teams as a potential landing spot in free agency.
According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, the Philadelphia 76ers, Los Angeles Lakers and Milwaukee Bucks were all in play for the veteran shooter.
Just over a week after Woj’s report, Korver has reportedly decided where he wants top play next season.
According to Wojnarowski, the star shooter is taking his talents to Milwaukee.
Free agent Kyle Korver has agreed to a one-year deal with the Milwaukee Bucks, agent Jeff Schwartz of @excelsm tells ESPN.

Korver bounced around the league during the 2018-19 season. He started in Cleveland before a trade sent him to Utah.
Korver then landed in Memphis in a trade that sent Mike Conley to the Jazz. After a brief stint in Memphis, Korver eventually found his way to Phoenix – where he was destined to be waived by the team.
the three-point specialist is a major coup for the Bucks. He took 72-percent of his shots from beyond the arc last season and hit nearly 40-percent of them.
Early reports suggested Korver would land in Los Angeles with former teammate LeBron James. However, he’s headed to the Eastern Conference where the Bucks are favorites to make the NBA Finals.
