In the NBA, the rich just get richer.
Rumors broke out earlier this week that the Atlanta Hawks were looking to deal Paul Millsap as they looked to blow things up.

But Millsap wasn’t the first sacrifice, with reports now confirmed that the first casualty will be shooting stud Kyle Korver.

And he didn’t just go to any old franchise: Korver will be in Cleveland with the defending champion Cavaliers.

He’ll join a Cavs roster that needed some help after losing JR Smith, and will likely be the starter going forward.
The Cavs have added one of the best shooters in the NBA – and King James must be looking toward Golden State laughing away right now.
