According to K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune, the Chicago Bulls have sent nine-year veteran SG Kyle Korver to the Atlanta Hawks:
Pending passed physical, Bulls have traded Kyle Korver to Atlanta. Could be sign-and-trade w/Hinrich. Details soon at chicagotribune.com.— K.C Johnson (@KCJHoop) July 13, 2012
Korver played with the Bulls in the 2010-11 and 2011-12 NBA seasons, averaging 8.2 points per game across 147 appearances, mostly off the bench. The team had been shopping for potential trade partners over the last few days and only recently ended talks with the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Portland Trail Blazers.
Earlier speculation from Johnson suggested the Bulls might execute a sign-and-trade with the Hawks in order to acquire PG Kirk Hinrich while preserving their mini-mid level exception.
