Nets Traded Kyle Korver For A Copy Machine During NBA Draft?

klye korverThere are very few shooting specialists quite like the Atlanta Hawks’ Kyle Korver. Korver, who for his career has shot 42.5% from the three-point line, was originally drafted by the New Jersey Nets with the 51st pick in the 2003 NBA Draft. An article in Grantland┬ánotes that Korver was then immediately sold to the Philadelphia 76ers for $125,000. What did the Nets do with the extra cash you ask?

You’d have to wonder if the Nets regret trading one of the league’s best shooter? Or maybe they don’t; the copy machine turned into one of the best in the office.
