Kyle Korver is one of the best shooters in NBA history. Korver currently ranks fourth on the league's all-time list of 3-pointers made—behind only Ray Allen, Reggie Miller and Stephen Curry—and still holds the record for highest 3-point percentage in one season (.536 in 2009-10).
A 6-foot-7 wing, Korver was originally selected by the New Jersey Nets in the second round (51st overall) of the 2003 NBA Draft, though he was traded to the Philadelphia 76ers on draft night. In 2007 he was traded to Utah, where he averaged 8.7 points and 1.3 3-pointers over three seasons. Korver has also played for the Chicago Bulls, Atlanta Hawks (where he was an NBA All-Star and also won the NBA Sportsmanship Award in 2015) and Cleveland Cavaliers, and he returned to the Jazz in November 2018.
Korver was born on March 17, 1981 in Lakewood, California, and he comes from a basketball family. Both of his parents (Kevin and Laine) played at Central College in Pella, Iowa, and Korver played collegiately at Creighton University, where he finished fourth on the school's all-time scoring list.
