Cavaliers get: SG/SF Kyle Korver
Hawks get: SG/SF Mike Dunleavy, PG Mo Williams, protected 2019 first-rounder
It remains unclear as to exactly why GM Wes Wilcox felt obliged to make this trade: Atlanta is currently sitting pretty at fourth in the East, but nonetheless slightly downgraded here at shooting guard in exchange for the future first-rounder -- the type of move that's generally made by tanking teams rather than competing teams. But overall, really, the only edge that Korver has on Dunleavy at this stage in his career is that the former is connecting on 40.9% of his long balls, compared to Dunleavy's 35.1% -- both of which are in fact efficient marks.
Thus the motive of this trade remains confusing. It wasn't even as if Atlanta could easily afford to downgrade on the wing: their best wingman, Kent Bazemore, has been greatly disappointing thus far this season, and the best depth behind him at either shooting guard or small forward consists of Tim Hardaway Jr. (a mild pleasant surprise this season) and Thabo Sefolosha. If anything, major upgrades were needed on the Hawks' wing (pun intended).
Still, in terms of the raw value of sacrificing 5.8 percentage three-point percentage points for a future first-rounder, and a point guard in Mo Williams who might be a solid backup when healthy next season, Atlanta came out just fine.
