Cleveland is finalizing a deal to acquire shooting guard Kyle Korver from the Atlanta Hawks, a person familiar with the deal told USA TODAY Sports.
The move comes one day after the Cavaliers shipped their first-round pick in June's draft to the Portland Trail Blazers for a 2018 first-round pick, which Cleveland originally sent to Portland along with Anderson Varejao in exchange for a future second-round pick at the February trade deadline a year ago. He should fill in nicely for J.R. Smith, who had thumb surgery in December and was expected to miss at least three months.
The 6-foot-7, 212-pound Korver played in 32 games (21 starts) for the Hawks this season with averages of 9.5 points, 2.8 rebounds and 2.3 assists in 27.9 minutes.
Nowadays, however, LeBron plays with undoubtedly one of the two or three best point guards in the NBA-a guy whom many consider the very best-Kyrie Irving. We need a point guard."James also said he'd like the Cavs to add another big man, but "there's not many bigs out there. we'll see what happens".
There is actually a case for having the best interest of Kyle Korver in mind to deal him to such a nemesis.
Manchester City v Burnley preview
I have had much more hard situations in my life than being second in a very, very hard league. Expect them to give Liverpool a run for their money, but the visitors have the cutting edge.
To be honest, I don't know. The 36-year-old never became a regular part of the rotation and averaged just 4.6 points in 23 games. And with 1 year left in his contract, the Mavericks may trade him to get other players in the roster and somehow improve the team's current dismal performance. The Hawks don't have much use for Dunleavy and are looking to move him, so it hard to grade them fully at this point.
The Cavs were already a superb offensive team, with the ability to spread the floor with elite shooters at every position and James, one of the best passers in the history of the sport, to hit them all with pinpoint feeds.
Bottom line: the Warriors can not let Korver and the Cavs get inside their heads.
Dallas has gone 5-5 over their last 10 games but now sit at 11-25 for the season which ties them for dead last in the Western Conference. The Dallas Mavericks will also get less than forty-eight hours prior to tipoff, although their schedule has not been as grueling as Atlanta's and they will be staying home for the final game of a three-game home stand.

If he plays like that in the playoffs, Seattle just might find itself back in the Super Bowl for the third time in four seasons. And when do the Seahawks play at their best? San Francisco has potentially more to gain by losing the game than winning.
And now that we're here, we have to capitalize on that chance and play up to that momentum that we've had over the last few weeks. If they were playing anyone but the Packers, perhaps there would be a little more momentum on Detroit's side.
