Kyle Korver

Former Creighton star Kyle Korver agreed to a one-year, $2.6 million deal with the Milwaukee Bucks on Saturday, his agent said.

Nearly one month and four teams later, former Creighton All-American Kyle Korver has found a home for his 17th NBA season.

The 6-foot-7 guard agreed to a one-year, $2.6 million deal with the Milwaukee Bucks, his agent said Saturday. The deal was first reported by ESPN.

Since leaving as the Bluejays’ leader in career 3-pointers, Korver has played for five NBA clubs — including Atlanta, where he teamed with current Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer. The 38-year-old Korver played three-plus seasons for Budenholzer, and was an all-star in 2015 for the Heat.

Milwaukee had the NBA’s best regular-season record (60-22) last year, then lost in the Eastern Conference finals.

Korver began last season with Cleveland before he was traded to Utah. He played 54 games for the Jazz, averaging 9.1 points off the bench. Utah then traded him to Memphis on June 19. Then the Grizzlies sent Korver to Phoenix on July 3, and the Suns waived him less than a week later.

Korver is the only player to lead the NBA in 3-point percentage four times, and ranks fourth all time in career 3-pointers — Golden State’s Steph Curry is the lone active players ahead of him. Korver also has the second- longest active streak of playoff appearances at 12, according to the Elias Sports Bureau.

He has averaged 9.9 points per game during his career, shooting 44.3% from the field and 42.9% from 3-point range.

Korver was a second-team All-American as a senior and two-time Missouri Valley player of the year. He scored 1,801 points from 1999-2003, sixth all time for CU, and is the only player in program history to make four NCAA tournaments.

Korver was picked in the second round of the 2003 draft by Philadelphia, where he played his first four-plus seasons. Korver then went to Utah, Chicago, Atlanta, Cleveland and back to Utah before his busy offseason. He also gave Creighton’s commencement address in May.
