The Jazz overcame their slow start, but a playoff misstep revealed how much work there is left to do

George Hill has been ruled out of the Bucks' game against the Bulls on Monday.
Kyle Korver will be held out as well. The Bucks are getting a look at their young talent instead of rushing the veterans into action. Hill should only have value in deeper leagues.

There is video that came out showing Giannis Antetokounmpo taking jump shots alongside new teammate Kyle Korver.
If Giannis is able to improve upon his efficiency when taking shots from outside, he will take the word unstoppable to another level. In his career, he is a 27.7% three-point shooter. Korver, a career 42.9% three-point shooter, will look to help the reigning MVP improve upon the one weakness in his game.

Kyle Korver has agreed to a one-year deal with the Bucks per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
This is not the worst landing spot for Korver but he will strictly be a backup and entering his 17th season, he should not be relevant in standard leagues. He was able to knock down 2.1 triples per game in only 20.1 minutes last season so he may have value as a specialist in super-deep leagues however.

Keith Pompey of the Phily Inquirer is reporting that the Sixers are one of the frontrunners to sign Kyle Korver after he becomes an unrestricted free agent on Wednesday.
The team had discussions about trading Jerryd Bayless to the Cavaliers for Korver last summer, while they were also interested in acquiring him before the Cavs traded him to the Jazz last November. Getting Korver would enable the Sixers to bring back a fan favorite who is one of the league’s top three-point shooters. The 16-year veteran shot 39.7 percent on three-pointers last season with the Cavs and the Jazz, while he has shot 42.9 percent from three-point range through 1,174 career games. Korver would most likely come off the bench as Ben Simmons, Josh Richardson, Tobias Harris, Al Horford, and Joel Embiid are the expected starters. The Sixers don’t have a proven knockdown three-point shooter on Korver’s level and he would be able to fill that hole if he chooses to return to Philadelphia.

The Suns have waived Kyle Korver.
It was only a matter of time before the team waived Korver. They're a young team and still right in the middle of a rebuild project so Korver will likely want to play for a contender. The Lakers, Sixers and Bucks were all reported to have interest in the 38-year old sharpshooter.

Mike Conley is now officially a member of the Utah Jazz in a trade involving Jae Crowder, Kyle Korver, Grayson Allen and 23rd pick Darius Bazley.
The Grizzlies will also acquire a future protected first-round pick. Korver will be involved in another to the Suns while Crower, Allen and Bazley should stay for the Memphis rebuild. Conley will form a dynamic backcourt with Donovan Mitchell while Grizzlies owner Robert Parra issued a statement that the team will one day hang Conley's jersey in the rafters after spending 12 memorable seasons with them.

Kyle Korver, who will be traded from Memphis to Phoenix, will be bought out by the Suns, with Adrian Wojnarowski reporting that the Lakers, Sixers and Bucks are the frontrunners to sign him on the open market.
All three of those teams are championship hopefuls, so it's no surprise that they'd be interested in adding a lethal shooter like Korver on a cheap deal, even if his overall utility has waned. There won't be a ton of fantasy appeal here as threes have become bountiful across the league, but Korver should be good for his usual production.

Kyle Korver, who will be traded to the Grizzlies when they complete Wednesday's Mike Conley deal, is expected to play one more season, and possibly another beyond that per Marc Stein.
Korver, 38, was said to be mulling retirement but it looks as though he's going to give it another crack. A notorious fitness nut, Korver keeps himself in great shape and relies on a skill that hasn't degraded at all with age. His place on a rebuilding team is questionable, however, and it would be surprising if he spent the entire season in Memphis. Consider him the same 3-point specialist he always is.

Kyle Korver is uncertain if he will return for the 2019-20 season and has contemplated retirement.
“There’s a real cost as you get older,” Korver said. “There’s all of what you need to put into the game, but there’s also a family cost. That’s probably where I’m at, is weighing that cost.” Korver has a player option for the 2019-20 season that becomes partially guaranteed after July 7. It would be his 17th NBA season if he chooses to return.

Kyle Korver logged 16 minutes on Saturday night and scored eight points with a pair of threes in Utah's latest loss to the Rockets.
Korver played under 13 minutes total in the first two games because of nagging right knee soreness but was able to increase his activity tonight. He was able to attract enough attention to get Donovan Mitchell a wide-open three with 10 seconds left, but the Jazz's shooting issues continued to dog them. They're now 27-for-106 from deep in the series and will need to win Game 4 if they hope to see another day.

Kyle Korver (right knee soreness) has increased his practice participation and is feeling good ahead of Game 3.
Korver has logged under 13 minutes combined in the series' first two contests and the Jazz offense has struggled mightily, with bricked open threes becoming an ongoing issue. Today, Korver said, "I did the most today in practice that I’ve done in a bunch of weeks, so I’ll be ready." We'll see if he can make a bigger impact as the series shifts to Utah.

Kyle Korver (right knee soreness) will suit up to play on Wednesday against the Rockets.
The Jazz will look to even the series on Wednesday night. They will have their veteran sharpshooter available to come off the bench even though he is dealing with some discomfort in his right knee. Korver didn’t attempt a single three pointer in Game 1 so look for the Jazz to give him more opportunities tonight if they hope to defeat the Rockets.

Kyle Korver (right knee soreness) is probable Wednesday's Game 2 against the Rockets.
The Jazz are looking to regroup after an ugly Game 1 and will need Korver to show off his sharpshooting ways off the bench in Game 2 if they hope to steal one at the Toyota Center.

Kyle Korver will play in Game 1 against the Rockets.
The Jazz will need Korver to be at his best tonight as they hope to steal Game 1 on the road. The last time these two teams met, Korver was only able to connect on one trey, and Jazz will need him to hit a few more in what could very easily turn into a 3-point shootout.
