Posted July 04, 2013 on AP on Fox
A person with knowledge of the deal says the Atlanta Hawks have reached an agreement to re-sign guard-forward Kyle Korver to a multiyear deal. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal has not been officially announced. Korver averaged 10.9 points per game and ranked second in the NBA by making 45.7 percent of his 3-point shots. Korver also had reported interest from Brooklyn, Milwaukee and San Antonio. The contract will not impact the Hawks' ability to offer free-agent center Dwight Howard a maximum contract. General manager Danny Ferry and coach Mike Budenholzer met with Howard, Ferry and Josh Smith in Los Angeles this week. ESPN reported the deal is for four years and $24 million.
