Chicago is Officially Out of Hot Sauce. (Kyle Korver traded)
(ESPN Chicago) – The Chicago Bulls’ trade of forward Kyle Korver to the Atlanta Hawks in exchange for a trade exception and cash considerations became official on Monday, the team announced.
Korver spent two seasons in Chicago after signing as a free agent from the Utah Jazz on July 13, 2010. The nine-year NBA veteran played in 147 games for the Bulls, averaging 8.2 points, 2.1 rebounds and 1.6 assists.
“It’s a bit of a bummer for sure,” Korver told ESPN 1000’s “Chicago’s GameNight” on Friday. “I love Chicago. I loved putting on a Bulls uniform. … What do you do? We learned this is a business and teams are going to make business decisions. I’m gonna go to Atlanta and try and go out there and play well.”
Well ladies thats a wrap… You can towel yourselves off now, Kyle has been shipped to ATL and one more piece of Bulls novelty is off the payroll. I can’t say his time in Chicago was a complete waste nor a complete steal. The guy’s tenure here was a lot like the team he played for… AVERAGE! Sorry Kyle you made for some cute catchphrases and a couple neat t-shirts, but you are not versatile and you are Atlanta’s one trick pony now.
P.S. I don’t want to hear about the game winner vs. Indy, every dog has its day. Feel free to share any other Korver memories here though.
