Sources: Cavs, Hawks hope Kyle Korver trade done by Saturday


The Cleveland Cavaliers hope to have their acquisition of Atlanta Hawks sharpshooter Kyle Korver completed by Saturday at the latest, according to league sources.

Sources told ESPN that Korver, in anticipation of officially joining the Cavaliers, did not accompany the Hawks to Dallas in advance of Atlanta’s road game Saturday against the Mavericks.

The Portland Trail Blazers and Cavaliers announced on Friday a swap of first-round draft picks that sets the stage for Cleveland’s trade for Korver.
