Sharpshooter Kyle Korver has finally found a landing spot.

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the 16-year veteran has signed a one-year deal to join the Milwaukee Bucks.

Wojnarowski also reported that it was a tough decision for Korver, who was choosing between Milwaukee and the Philadelphia 76ers. The Bucks took the edge due to Korver's history and relationship with head coach Mike Budenholzer, who coached Korver during his time with the Atlanta Hawks.

It's been a whirlwind of an offseason for the 3-point shooter, who was traded to the Memphis Grizzlies in the deal that sent Mike Conley to the Utah Jazz. The very next day, Korver was traded from Memphis to the Phoenix Suns who would then waive the guard to allow him to sign with a contender.

Korver's final destination should treat him well, playing alongside reigning MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo who is constantly creating open looks for his teammates due to the attention he draws from opposing defences.

Korver knocked down 39.7% of his 3-point attempts this past season. According to NBA stats tracking data, Korver shot 40.3% on catch-and-shoot 3's and 41.0% on 3-point attempts where he was classified as "open" or "wide open".

He adds another veteran presence to a roster that won 60 games this past season and will certainly be contending for a title again this season. He gives them another marksmen to go with a group that already includes Khris Middleton, Wesley Matthews, Ersan Ilyasova and Brook Lopez as well as other solid perimeter shooters like George Hill and Pat Connaughton.
