08:11 AM ET 03.13 | Kyle Korver certainly has made the most of the opportunity presented to him when the Hawks acquired him from Chicago for cash considerations. But Korver's future with the team beyond this season isn't a certainty. The Hawks only have three players with guaranteed deals for the 2014 season. ... In recent weeks Denver and Utah are teams rumored to have interest in Korver once free agency begins. Korver played three seasons with the Jazz from 2008-2010. Memphis is another team to watch and could join the Korver sweepstakes this summer. The Grizzlies are currently 24th in the league in three-point accuracy and their top three-point option, Mike Conley, has connected on just 79 for the entire season.

Grizzlies don't really have a "shooting" guard. Allen is in for defense, which he does well. They are When Rudy was there he wasn't a good 3pt shooter let alone medium range shooter, Bayless is the backup point and they traded away Ellington so they don't have many shooters. Korver would be just what they need but if he goes to Denver he would get a lot of open shots as well

He would get plenty of open looks on the nuggets, but he was needed before the trade deadline. Now, Wilson and Gallo have been shooting much better - and both play D. Unless Korver plays better Dthan he used to, he'd ride the pine.

Memphis needs him but at the right price. Even Denver don't really need him. They have enough athletes w/ his size. Now the LA teams might need him more. He could be back w/ Atlanta because they also need his shooting.

Denver and Memphis could use his services. They are 24, 25 in the league as far as 3pt FG%. It hasn't effected their win % but they both know they need shooters to space the floor.

They just run teams until they die in the 4th Q. Nuggets outscore opponents in the 4th by a ton. Wouldn't mind Korver to come in then and bomb away at a defence too tired to rotate.

Depends on what you call "big $".
-
He's making $5 million in the final season of the 3-year contract the Bulls signed him to. I'd bet he gets $7 to $8 million per year in a 2 or 3 year deal.
