Report: Hawks keep Korver with multi-year deal

Atlanta, GA (Sports Network) - The Atlanta Hawks have reportedly reached an agreement to re-sign sharp-shooter Kyle Korver.

Although the deal cannot become official until July 10, the Atlanta Journal- Constitution reported Korver will receive a multi-year contract.

The newspaper reported Hawks brass met with Korver this week in California, where he makes his home. The team was also in Los Angeles to talk to Dwight Howard about potentially luring him to Atlanta.

The 6-foot-7 Korver averaged 10.9 points and 4.0 rebounds in 74 games last season for the Hawks, his first with the team. He also shot 45.7 percent from 3-point range, which was second-best in the NBA.
