Despite once being traded to the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for practically a copy machine, Kyle Korver has turned himself into one of the best pure shooters in the NBA. Still, the Utah Jazz recently traded Kyle Korver to the Phoenix Suns, and they're expected to reach an agreement on a buyout.

With that in mind, here are the most likely destinations for Korver in free agency, if he reaches a buyout with the Suns.

3. Milwaukee Bucks

The Milwaukee Bucks have to compensate for losing Malcolm Brogdon, who was one of their most consistent shooters. While Korver can't replace what Brogdon brought as a ball-handler and defender, he can provide elite 3-point shooting. Giannis Antetokounmpo is at his best when he's able to operate in space, so adding a shooter like Korver should be imperative for Milwaukee.

2. Los Angeles Lakers

Even though the Los Angeles Lakers just added Danny Green, the team could still use some more shooters. It's well known that LeBron James plays at his best when surrounded by more talented shooters, so adding a marksman like Korver could help this new-look Lakers' team go toe-to-toe with the Los Angeles Clippers down the stretch.

1. Philadelphia 76ers

Korver started his NBA career with the 76ers, and a reunion with the team makes a ton of sense for both sides. Philadelphia looks like a powerhouse on both offense and defense, but the team is in dire need of a shooter after losing JJ Redick to the New Orleans Pelicans. Though he's a bit of a sieve on defense, Philadelphia should have enough talent to compensate for his deficiencies in that area, and his shooting could help unlock the 76ers' offense.
