Speaking of pitches, Spurs coach Gregg Popovich discussed how it was that he reeled in (LaMarcus) Aldridge.

“I don’t pitch too much,” Popovich said. “We don’t try to convince people very often, honestly. I think it’s overblown like we’re going go have some sort of sales deal. We tried to sell Jason Kidd [in 2003] and it didn’t work. We had Mariachis and everything, I think. All kinds of stuff. After that, I decided never again.

“If they come, they come. If they don’t, I don’t care. Because it’s as simple as that. Especially for a guy who’s been in the league for nine years. You know what he can do, you know what he can’t do. You know what you like, you know what you don’t like.”

Free-agent guard Kyle Korver has agreed to a one-year, $2.6 million deal with the Milwaukee Bucks, his agent, Jeff Schwartz of Excel Sports, told ESPN.

Korver labored over a decision between the Bucks and Philadelphia 76ers, but his history and relationship with coach Mike Budenholzer played a significant role in his ultimate choice, league sources said.

The 38-year-old Korver played three-plus seasons under Budenholzer in Atlanta and was an All-Star there in 2015.

According to ESPN’s Bobby Marks, the Bucks will incur a $1.6 million cap hit on Korver’s deal. The Phoenix Suns, who waived Korver earlier this month, will receive a $559,000 set-off on the $3.4 million they owe him.
