Kyle Korver

Kyle Korver, right, has reportedly been traded for the second time this offseason.

Less than a month after Kyle Korver was traded to Memphis, the Creighton great appears to be on the move again.

ESPN reported on Wednesday that Korver is part of a package being sent by the Grizzlies to the Suns. But Korver won't likely be staying in Phoenix. According to ESPN, the Suns are planning to buy out Korver's contract, which would make him a free agent after he clears waivers.

ESPN also reported that the Los Angeles Lakers, Philadelphia 76ers and Milwaukee Bucks are the frontrunners to land Korver once he's available.

Korver has played for five different teams during his 16-year NBA career, including Philadelphia, where he spent the first four-plus seasons of his career. 

Korver played last season with the Utah Jazz, appearing in 58 games off the bench. In June he was sent to Memphis along with other players and draft picks in exchange for Mike Conley.

In the most recent trade, Memphis reportedly sent Korver and Jevon Carter to Phoenix in exchange for DeAnthony Melton, Josh Jackson and draft picks.

Korver, a second-round draft pick in 2003, has averaged 9.9 points per game during his career, shooting 44.3% from the field and 42.9% from 3-point range.

Korver, who is the only player to lead the NBA in 3-point percentage four times, ranks fourth all-time in career 3-pointers made. He trails only Steph Curry among active players.

Korver, a Bluejay from 1999-2003, remains the only player in Creighton history to play in four NCAA tournaments. He was a consensus second-team All-American as a senior and twice was named the Missouri Valley regular-season and tournament MVP.

He joined Creighton’s Hall of Fame last year.

He remains the Creighton and Missouri Valley record holder with 371 career 3-pointers. He also ranks in the top 10 in Creighton history with 819 3-point attempts (first), an 89.1% free-throw percentage (first), a 45.3% 3-point percentage (third), 172 steals (fifth) and 1,801 career points (sixth).
