In his career, Korver is a 42.9 percent shooter from beyond the arc, and split time with the Cleveland Cavaliers and Utah Jazz last season. He finished the year with a 39.7 percent mark from three-point range, and found himself in the Playoffs once again in Utah. This signing brings up a bit of a reunion, as Korver reunites with head coach Mike Budenholzer, who coached him for three seasons with the Atlanta Hawks.
The 38-year-old was one of the few highly-pursued free agents remaining, with the Philadelphia 76ers being the only other favorite to land him. Sources close to the deal say that Budenholzer coaching the Bucks may have been the deciding factor in the move. He played in 70 games last season, averaging 8.6 points and 2.3 rebounds, but his best season came in 2006-2007 with the Sixers, when he averaged 14.4 points per game. For his career, he has averaged 9.9 points per game, and continues to produce through the latter stages of it.
