NEW YORK -- The Cavs are nearing a trade for Atlanta shooting guard Kyle Korver, potentially for Mike Dunleavy and a 2019 first-round pick, multiple sources confirmed.

The Vertical first reported the pending deal, which is not yet completed. Cavs sources told cleveland.com Wednesday night that they were more likely to trade for a shooter. Korver would be it -- he's one of the greatest 3-point shooters in NBA history.

A Korver-Dunleavy swap could be the first of multiple deals for the Cavs -- who have a few needs and some dead weight on their roster.

One source said the Cavs and Hawks had been talking trade for weeks, and the potential deal included Korver for Dunleavy. But another said the teams were still negotiating which player(s) the Hawks might take in return. A third team could become involved.
