Kyle Korver has been traded again.
The 38-year-old guard has been sent from the Grizzlies to the Suns in exchange for Josh Jackson, De'Anthony Melton and two second-round picks, according to a report from ESPN, which cites unidentified league sources.
Phoenix also acquired guard Jevon Carter in the deal.

Korver, however, doesn’t appear like he’ll ever play a game with the Suns as they are expected to buy him out. The Lakers, 76ers and Bucks will be interested in him once he becomes a free agent, according to ESPN.

Korver played with Lakers star LeBron James with the Cavaliers while he began his career in Philadelphia. Milwaukee finished with a 60-22 record last season and reached the Eastern Conference finals.
Korver was dealt to the Grizzlies last month as part of the package that landed the Jazz guard Mike Conley Jr. Korver began 2018-19 with the Cavaliers before he was traded to Utah in late November.
The sharpshooter has knocked down 42.9% of his 3-point attempts over his 16-year career.
Jackson, meanwhile, was selected by the Suns with the No. 4 pick in the 2017 draft. But, his career has been derailed by inconsistent play and off-the-court issues. He has averaged 12.3 points and shot just 29.4% from behind the arc during his two NBA seasons.
