According to reliable sources, sharp-shooting forward Kyle Korver and the Chicago Bulls have agreed to a three-year, $15 million deal. Korver played last year with the Utah Jazz, averaging 7.2 points and 2.1 rebounds in 18 minutes per game. He also boasted a sky-high 54-percent success rate from behind the three-point line.

He will join former Jazz teammate Carlos Boozer who signed with the Chicago Bulls on Thursday in a suspected sign-and-trade. Korver is familiar with Boozer's low-post game and will look to space the floor for the Chicago Bulls, a role the organization has been looking to fill since their drafting of point guard Derrick Rose.

More to come once the signing of the 6'7" swingman Kyle Korver is finalized.
