Kyle Korver Biography
Forward for the Utah Jazz, Kyle Korver was born March 17, 1981 in Lakewood, California. He plays small forward and was drafted out of Creighton University by the New Jersey Nets in the second round (51st overall) of the 2003 NBA Draft; his draft rights were traded to the Philadelphia 76ers for cash considerations in a draft-night deal.
Korver competed in both the 2004 and 2005 Foot Locker Three-Point Shootouts, coming in third and second in those contests respectively. In the 2004-05 season, Korver tied for first place in the league in three-pointers made with Quentin Richardson who both had 226, also a Sixers franchise record. Currently in his fifth season in the NBA, Korver has become a sixth man, averaging more points per game off the bench than he had as a starter. Korver had a career high 31 points at Milwaukee on February 24, 2006, something he duplicated on February 21, 2007 at home against the New York Knicks.
Before going on to be Creighton University's fifth all-time scorer, he attended Pella High School in Pella, Iowa where he recently had his number 25 jersey retired.
On December 26, 2007, Korver was traded by the Philadelphia 76ers to the Utah Jazz in exchange for Gordan Giriček and a future first-round draft pick.
Korver is a committed Christian. Off the court, Korver held a coat-drive with the 76ers, where he collects and donates coats to Operation Warm. He has participated in the NBA's Basketball Without Borders outreach program in Africa, China, Brazil, and India.
