16-year veteran wing Kyle Korver is already one of the greatest 3-point shooters in NBA history. The sharpshooter started his career with the Philadelphia 76ers as the franchise bought his second round draft rights from the then New Jersey Nets. During his five season tenure with the Sixers, he averaged 10.5 points on 40.9 percent shooting from the 3-point line.
The 76ers traded Korver to the Utah Jazz, but he’s also played for the Bulls, Hawks, Cleveland Cavaliers and Utah again. He signed with the Milwaukee Bucks this summer and has been helping reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo work on improving his jump shot.
“He was one of the diamonds found in the rough by Hinkie. Covington quickly developed into one of the best 3-and-D players in the NBA.”
Remember the three players that was a part of the trade that landed Philly Bulter? Robert Covington was one of those players. He was one of the diamonds found in the rough by Hinkie. Covington quickly developed into one of the best 3-and-D players in the NBA. With Philly he averaged 12.9 points, 5.6 rebounds and 1.6 steals, while converting 35.9 percent of his 3-pointers.
After the trade that landed Covington in Minnesota, he was playing well until injuries derailed his season. He projects to be an important part of the T-Wolves starting five this season as a floor spacer and defender.
