ATLANTA (AP) -- The Atlanta Hawks have re-signed guard Kyle Korver, allowing the team to keep one of the league's top 3-point shooters.
The four-year, $24 million deal, first reported last week, was signed on Friday.
Korver averaged 10.9 points and made 45.7 percent of his 3-point shots last season to rank second in the NBA. He has made a 3-pointer in 73 consecutive regular-season games, the league's longest active streak.
General manager Danny Ferry says Korver is an "important presence" for the team and says "we're thrilled to retain him."
Korver and center Al Horford may be the team's only returning starters. The Hawks must decide by Saturday night if they will match the Bucks' four-year, $32 million offer to point guard Jeff Teague, a restricted free agent.
Jordan Hamilton turns it over but hustles back and gets the block on Evan Turner on the other end leading to the fast break where Jeremy Lin slashes down the lane for the layup.
