Reports Claim Sixers in Hunt for Sharpshooter

With Toronto bringing in Kawhi Leonard, and Boston eventually getting a healthy Gordon Hayward and Kyrie Irving, the Philadelphia 76ers are in danger of being left in the dust by their Eastern Conference rivals.

However, help could be on the way.

On Thursday, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Enquirer reported that the Sixers have been undergoing talks with the Cleveland Cavaliers regarding veteran 3-point specialist Kyle Korver.

On Friday ESPN’s Marc Stein followed up the rumours:

Presumably, something other than Bayless would have to be included to make the trade palatable for the Cavaliers. The addition of a draft pick or two would likely be necessary for a fairer deal. Though Bayless is a serviceable backup guard, his value does not approach that of Korver, long one of the league’s premier 3-point shooters.

Korver’s shooting expertise would come in especially handy in Philly, as his ability to stretch the floor could be of immense help to a team heavily featuring Ben Simmons, who has yet to develop a 3-point shot. The Sixers also lost fellow long-range specialist Marco Belinelli to San Antonio in free agency, necessitating a replacement.

Korver shot 43% from 3 in 2017-18, matching his career average.
