Sources: Atlanta and Cleveland are finalizing terms on Korver deal, with Mike Dunleavy Jr., likely moving onto a third team through Atlanta.
Cavs are making a separate deal with Blazers. They will trade their 2017 1st to get their 2018 first back, sources said.
I hear Mo Williams is Atlanta bound along w/a heavily protected 1st from Cavs for Korver. Mo Williams may be functionally retired, but he’s still on the Cavs’ roster and he’s still a player who can be traded.
In theory, the Cavs would be using some of the Varejao TPE to get Korver, generating a new one for Williams at $2.2 million.

LeBron James Still Uncertain for Season Opener
LeBron James tested his injured left ankle during a portion of practice Sunday, but it’s still not known if he’ll play in Cleveland’s season opener.
James has been slowed since spraining his ankle in practice on Sept. 27. The three-time NBA champion sat out the Cavaliers’ first three exhibition games before making his debut last week against Chicago. He played 30 minutes but may have aggravated his ankle while making a spin move in the loss.
