    SI.com: Report: Kyle Korver, Bucks Agree to One-Year Deal Worth $2.6 Million

    Free-agent guard Kyle Korver has agreed to a one-year, $2.6 million deal with the Milwaukee Bucks, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported on Saturday.

    According to Wojnarowski, Korver was considering the Bucks and Sixers before ultimately deciding to join Milwaukee. His relationship with coach Mike Budenholzer, who he played under for three years in Atlanta, played a significant role in his choice.

    Drafted as a second-round pick in 2003, Korver started his career with the 76ers and spent five seasons in Philadelphia before being traded to the Jazz. Korver had stops in Utah, Chicago, Atlanta and Cleveland and was traded twice in this offseason, to Memphis and Phoenix, before he was waived.

    Lakers Nation: Lakers News: Avery Bradley Has Clippers Games 'Circled On The Calendar For Myself'

    Unlike some of the other new faces that were added to the roster, Avery Bradley finds himself in familiar territory after signing with the Los Angeles Lakers in free agency.

    Bradley spent the better part of the last two seasons struggling to find his footing with the Los Angeles Clippers following his arrival in the Blake Griffin trade. After failing to make an impact in Los Angeles, he was traded to the Memphis Grizzlies to end the 2018-19 NBA season.

    The 28-year-old now has a chance at a potential resurgence across town with the Lakers moving forward.

  • Fansided: Paul George's Health Needs to be a Priority

    The NBA debate topic du jour for the last year or so has been "load management." While in no way a completely novel concept, changes in the NBA's rules have allowed teams to openly rest players more frequently throughout a season in order to protect their future health, without having to fabricate a vague injury that would explain their absence. Kawhi Leonard, whom the Clippers signed this off-season, has become the athlete most associated with the term, both due to how intensely he and the Raptors monitored his minutes last season, but also because of the success of the program he followed.

    Official Site of the Pacers: Mark's Mailbag: Taking an Early Look at the Rotation

    Have a question for Mark? Want it to be on Pacers.com? Email him at askmontieth@gmail.com and you could be featured in his next mailbag.

    Editor's Note: Some Mailbag questions have been edited for clarity and length.

    Q. With the signing of Malcolm Brogdon on a four-year deal, does that move Holiday strictly to the backup point guard spot? I would like to see Holiday at the point and Brogdon at the two rather than Lamb. It would be a smaller lineup but I really think Holiday would flourish in a starting role for part of the season.

  • Fansided: Houston Rockets: James Harden won't play for Team USA, focusing on changes

    The Houston Rockets are going to be an incredibly fun team next year. With the addition of Russell Westbrook, they should be a bit faster of a team than we've seen in years past with quite a bit more transition ability.

    It's also going to take some preparation from the two stars as they try to adjust to each other's games once again. They seem ready, willing and able to do so, it's all about putting in the work, now.

    That's why James Harden is deciding to withdraw from Team USA for the summer, to focus on the changes to the Rockets and improving his game even more.

    Fansided: Golden State Warriors: D'Angelo Russell's playmaking will be valuable

    In the wake of Kevin Durant's decision, the Golden State Warriors acted swiftly to acquire D'Angelo Russell in a sign-and-trade. This move kept the Dubs alive with a fresh breath of All-Star air. Losing Durant could have sabotaged this team, but is Russell enough to keep them afloat?

    Russell is nowhere near the same talent level as Durant. KD is a 10-time All-Star, four-time scoring champ, two-time Finals MVP and one-time regular-season MVP. Meanwhile, Russell has only reached one All-Star game in his young career.

    Of course, Russell has plenty of time to grow, but for now, he is a far cry from what Durant was bringing to the team.

  • Mavs Moneyball: Roundtable: Assessing the off-season, part one

    With free agency mostly wrapped up at this point, including all the various mega-trades around the NBA, we thought it a good time to take the temperature of our staff. Everyone has an opinion and wouldn't you know it, a website of writers has a host of takes. So many in fact we opted to break it up into a pair of posts.

    The off-season is over and now we wait. Since you've had plenty of time to think, how would you review things?

    Doyle: I'm actually very comfortable with the off-season moves the team made.
