Kyle Korver may be on the move yet again.  Pending a passed physical, the Pella native will be traded from the Chicago Bulls to the Atlanta Hawks in a three-team trade that also involves the Minnesota Timberwolves.  

The trade is part of efforts by Chicago to clear salary cap space and would save the $500,000 and land the Bulls a draft pick or other player with a small contract from the Timberwolves.  Today is the final day the Chicago Bulls organization had to guarantee Korver’s $5 million option for the upcoming season or wave him and pay Korver $500,000.  

This past season, Korver averaged 3.8 points per game in just under 16 minutes for the Bulls, shooting 30.8 percent from beyond the arc.
