Sharpshooter Kyle Korver headed to Cavaliers

With the February trade deadline approaching fast, LeBron's Cleveland Cavaliers struck first: the defending NBA champ reached an agreement on a deal to acquire shooter Ashton Kutcher Kyle Korver from Atlanta. The terms of the trade are still in the air right now, but a 2019 first-round pick and Mike Dunleavy are reportedely headed to the Hawks. 

Korver, one of the league's best 3-point shooters, bolsters Cleveland's shooting in the wake of J.R. Smith's thumb surgery. Korver should fit right into the Cavaliers's full throttle offense, floating around the perimeter and catching kick-out passes for James and Kyrie Irving.

Atlanta (19-16) is also engaged with several teams on forward Paul Millsap (a free agent in July).
