Kyle Korver will play his 15th NBA season with the Cleveland Cavaliers after resigning as a free agent last week.

The Pella native was traded to Cleveland in the middle of the 2016-2017 season, and made his first appearance in the NBA finals this spring, where the Cavaliers lost to the Golden State Warriors.

The Cavs are Korver’s fifth team, and he finished his 14th season with career averages of 10 points and just over three rebounds per game.

He ranks fifth in NBA history three-point field goal percentage (.431) and is tied for fifth all-time in three-point baskets (2,049).

He was the NBA’s best three-point shooter last season at just over 45-percent, leading the league for the fourth time in his career in that category.
