NBA free agent rumors: Bucks make lucrative offer to Kyle Korver, according to report

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The Bucks are looking at Kyle Korver as a possible J.J. Redick replacement, and they have reportedly made a big offer.

With J.J. Redick traded to the Los Angeles Clippers, the Milwaukee Bucks are eying a possible replacement. The Bucks have offered sharpshooter Kyle Korver a three-year, $20 million contract, according to ESPN's Marc Stein.

The Brooklyn Nets were initially believed to be the frontrunner for Korver, but they reportedly dropped out of the race on Wednesday morning. This lucrative offer for Korver could explain why. The Nets only have the taxpayer mid-level exception starting at $3.18 million to offer Korver, and the Bucks' offer doubles that.

Korver played well for the Atlanta Hawks this past year, averaging 10.9 points while shooting 45.7 percent from three-point range. That three-point mark was good for second-best in the league. Many figured Korver's strong season would net him a nice payday, but nearly $7 million over three years does seem like a bit much for a one-dimensional player who will turn 33 next season.

Stein reports that the San Antonio Spurs are another team to watch out for in the Korver chase.
