The Cleveland Cavaliers have agreed to a trade for swingman Kyle Korver, according to Shams Charania of The Vertical.

According to the report, the two sides are still finalizing the terms of the trade. However, the Cavs will give the Hawks Mike Dunleavy Jr. and a 2019 first-round pick.

While Korver’s production has slipped the last two seasons, he gives the Cavs another legit three-point shooter and offensive threat with J.R. Smith out 2-3 months with a thumb injury.

Korver has averaged 2.5 three-point shots made over the last five seasons with the Hawks. He has also led the NBA in three-point shooting accuracy three times in his 14 seasons. He was averaging 9.5 points per game this season with the Hawks, making 44.1% of his shots and 40.9% of his three-pointers.

Korver needs just 48 more three-pointers to become just the fifth player in NBA history with 2,000 in his career.

The Hawks have been hoping to find a third team to take Dunleavy, according to Charania, but will hold on to him for now.
