Where Are They Now: Kyle Korver

The former Creighton Bluejay has made a habit out of draining three-pointers in the NBA throughout his career.

Kyle Korver left a large mark at Creighton University in his four years with the school. He was named an All­-American and a two time MVC Player of the Year, while finishing his career with the Bluejays as the fifth all­-time leading scorer.

The former Creighton star went on to be selected by the New Jersey Nets, now Brooklyn Nets, with the 51st pick in the 2003 NBA Draft. The Nets traded his draft rights to the Philadelphia 76ers for cash considerations shortly after this selection.

He has bounced around with numerous teams since his arrival into the NBA in 2003, playing for the Philadelphia 76ers and Utah Jazz for five seasons, the Chicago Bulls for three and is currently playing with the Atlanta Hawks.

Korver has made his name his name in the association for being a top tier three-point shooter and free throw shooter, holding numerous records in both those categories. The shooting guard also participated in the 2004 and 2005 Foot Locker Three­-Point Shootouts, placing third and second.

The Pella, Iowa native signed a four-­year 24 million dollar contract with the Atlanta Hawks, and currently has three more years left on it.

He is no LeBron James, high-radar, high-profile type guy, but he has made a solid career for himself in the NBA, playing twelve NBA seasons thus far.
