The Cleveland Cavaliers made huge waves earlier tonight by trading for Atlanta Hawks shooting guard Kyle Korver.
Apparently, their dealings with the Hawks aren’t done yet.
Sources: Atlanta discussed Korver parameters with a few contenders, but Cavs stepped up with first-round pick. On deck: Paul Millsap.

The required haul for the Cavs to get Paul Millsap would be much bigger than the relatively small one for Korver. It’s possible Kevin Love would be included.
But adding someone with the offensive skill and defensive versatility of Millsap would all but guarantee the Cavs a second championship. A frontcourt pairing of Love and Dwight Howard could be legitimately interesting for the Hawks as well.
