Kyle Korver scored 22 points with six 3-pointers on Wednesday, adding five rebounds, two assists, two steals and one block in 25 minutes vs. the Pacers.
In the process, Korver became the 7th player in NBA history with at least 2,000 career 3-pointers. The veteran hasn't missed a beat in Cleveland, averaging 2.6 treys on 49.5 percent from deep, and he said the biggest adjustment is getting so wide open without needing to run himself ragged. He's a nice specialist but doesn't typically offer this many extra stats. Feb 15 - 10:34 PM

Kyle Korver hit 2-of-5 shots (both 3-pointers) for six points, five rebounds, one assist, one steal and one block in Tuesday's win over the Wolves.

Iman Shumpert (ankle) was back from a three-game absence, started and played 26 minutes, and it looks like the two are going to be locked into a timeshare until further notice. Making both of them borderline fantasy players to own. But if you need 3-pointers, Korver should be able to help, regardless of whether or not Shumpert's playing.

Kyle Korver is getting more comfortable and familiar with the offensive gameplan in Cleveland.

"Kyle is getting more and more comfortable with what we want to do offensively and defensively," said LeBron James. Over Korver's last five games, he is averaging 16.2 points and 4.0 3-pointers, while shooting a scorching 63.6 percent from the floor and 64.5 percent from downtown. Iman Shumpert (ankle) is listed as out on Saturday, so Korver should see extended minutes once again.

Kyle Korver, who went nuts with 29 points and eight 3-pointers on 10-of-12 shooting on Wednesday, hit 3-of-3 shots and two 3-pointers for eight points, one rebound, one steal and one block in 26 minutes on Thursday.

Korver is going to play a decent role for the Cavaliers down the stretch and would have had a big opportunity tonight had the Cavs sat their Big 3, but that didn't happen. If you need 3-pointers, Korver is worth a look right now, but keep in mind that Iman Shumpert (ankle) is hoping to return to action on Saturday, which could hurt Korver's minutes.

Kyle Korver said he would like to re-sign with the Cavaliers this summer.

His contract is up this summer, but Korver thinks he has two or three years left in him. "I mean, who wouldn't want to play with the best players in the world?" Korver said. "I know they will have a lot of decisions to make this summer, with tax implications and things like that, but, yeah." Korver had a field day on Wednesday night with 29 points and eight 3-pointers, and he's taking advantage of an increased role with Iman Shumpert (sprained ankle) on the shelf. With the Cavs possibly resting LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love on Thursday vs. the Thunder, Korver should be very busy once again.
Feb 9 - 10:33 AM

Kyle Korver caught fire from deep on Wednesday, making 8-of-9 three-pointers and 10-of-12 shots overall to finish with a game-high-tying 29 points.

In the process, Korver passed Jason Kidd for seventh in all-time 3-pointers made (1,991). Despite tonight's scintillating performance, perimeter shooting is about all he offers fantasy owners these days. In the past two weeks he's averaging 2.7 triples, but he's adding just 2.1 rebounds, 1.3 assists, 0.3 blocks and zero steals.
Feb 8 - 10:09 PM

Kyle Korver scored 13 points with three rebounds, two assists and four 3-pointers in 30 minutes against the Wizards on Monday.

When the Cavs traded for Korver, he was expected to come in and take a ton of shots from three, but that wasn't needed nearly as much with how well Iman Shumpert (ankle) played. With Shumpert possibly missing time, this could be Korver's opportunity to fire away next to one of the best passers in the history of the NBA, LeBron James. He makes sense as a pickup in standard leagues.
Feb 6 - 11:26 PM

Kyle Korver scored all 12 of his points from downtown on Wednesday, going 4-of-7 beyond the arc with three assists, one rebound and one block.

Korver played 34 minutes tonight and he got some extra run due to Richard Jefferson's personal absence. He's taking advantage of easy looks in Cleveland, making 17 threes in his past six games, but he offers very little else to bolster his value.
Jan 25 - 10:51 PM

Kyle Korver scored six points with two rebounds and two 3-pointers in 22 minutes against the Spurs on Saturday.

Iman Shumpert has really turned it on and doesn't look like he's going to be giving up his minutes. At this point, we'd prefer Shump over Korver in standard leagues. Korver is also a drop candidate because of it.
Jan 21 - 11:36 PM

The Cavs are unlikely to make any additional trades, according to Brian Windhorst of ESPN.

"When the Cavs open the cabinet, they have nothing to give. I'd be stunned if they made a trade of consequence," said Windhorst. "The trade for [Kyle] Korver was a miracle. It almost caused a mutiny in the Hawks organization. That's it. The Cavs have made their moves." The Cavs will be paying $54 million in luxury taxes this season, so they're pretty limited in what they can do, although the buyout market could present another opportunity to add a piece such as Andrew Bogut (hamstring).
Jan 18 - 10:42 AM

Kyle Korver scored 11 points on 4-of-10 shooting with two rebounds and three 3-pointers in 27 minutes vs. the Warriors on Monday.

He started the second half in place of Kevin Love (back), but aside from the three triples, Korver was exposed on the defensive end as the Warriors appeared to attack him on nearly every possession. In terms of fantasy, Korver appears to have found his shooting touch with a combined seven 3-pointers over his last two games. He's a great 3-point specialist, but he's not going to help you in many other categories.
Jan 16 - 11:16 PM

Coach Ty Lue said the Cavs will focus on running Kyle Korver off screens and pindowns, in order to get their new sharpshooter open looks.

We got a sneak peek at what that might look like Friday in Sacramento, as Korver scored 18 points on 7-of-10 shooting, including four made 3-pointers. Korver has knocked down more 3-pointers than any NBA player over the last decade and is now sharing the floor with the best passing forward of all-time, on a team that launches treys at a dazzling rate. Scoop up Korver off the wire if you need 3-pointers.
Jan 14 - 10:29 AM

Kyle Korver scored 18 points on 7-of-10 from the field against the Kings on Friday, adding five rebounds, two assists, two steals and four 3-pointers in 25 minutes.

There he is. Korver only needed six attempts from deep after missing his first five attempts in his first two games as a Cav. Even though he is coming off the bench, Korver is still playing 13 minutes per game next to LeBron James. He's worth a pickup in standard leagues for owners needing treys.
Jan 14 - 2:04 AM

Kyle Korver scored two points with two rebounds, one assist and one turnover in 25 minutes against the Blazers on Wednesday.

He's off to a terrible start and hasn't even made a 3-pointer yet. Korver is a career 42.9 percent shooter from deep and LeBron James can make great shooters even better, so Korver should be in a position to thrive. His owners should stick with him for now.
Jan 12 - 1:08 AM

Kyle Korver said that LeBron James told him to "let it fly" when he's open.

"I’ll be ready. I’ve usually had to work pretty hard for my shots. Maybe there will be a few easier ones," said Korver. "[James] said if you catch it and you’re open let it fly. That shouldn’t be a problem... It will probably take a few games before we’re totally clicking and I know what’s going on all the way." Korver also said that this is the most talented team he's played for, and he should be getting a ton of wide open looks on that roster. It'll take a bit for him to get going, though.
