ATLANTA (AP) - The Atlanta Hawks have re-signed guard Kyle Korver, allowing the team to keep one of the league's top 3-point shooters.
The four-year, $24 million deal, first reported last week, was signed on Friday.
Korver averaged 10.9 points and made 45.7 percent of his 3-point shots last season to rank second in the NBA. He has made a 3-pointer in 73 consecutive regular-season games, the league's longest active streak.
General manager Danny Ferry says Korver is an ``important presence'' for the team and says ``we're thrilled to retain him.''
Korver and center Al Horford may be the team's only returning starters. The Hawks must decide by Saturday night if they will match the Bucks' four-year, $32 million offer to point guard Jeff Teague, a restricted free agent.
