Chris Broussard: Nets out of Kyle Korver sweepstakes

USA TODAY Sports

For the past several days, Nets insiders have been increasingly pessimistic about signing Kyle Korver, but refusing to raise the white flag of surrender. Tuesday, a flurry of high-priced signings made them even more so. Now Chris Broussard tweets that the Nets are out of the picture for the sweet-shooting Korver.

The Nets are limited to offering Korver $3.2 million --and $10 million over three-- while the market looks like its double that, particularly after Martell Webster got $22 million over four from the Wizards. If Korver had signed with the Nets, it would have been his smallest salary since 2004-05. Considering he is the NBA's best three point shooter over the past four seasons and at 32, this is likely his last contract, it was always a long-shot, despite his personal connections to Deron Williams and Billy King.

Marc Stein reports the big competing offer is a three-year, $20 million contract from the Bucks, twice what the Nets could offer.

If Korver will be signing elsewhere, who's in the Nets sights? Expect them to revisit signing Bojan Bogdanovic, as well as looking at players like Marco Belinelli (who like Korver is a Jeff Schwartz client) and Carlos Delfino.

Davide Chinellato, NBA reporter for the Italy's leading sports publication, La Gazzetta dello Sport, initially tweeted that Belinelli has the Nets and Pacers "at the top of his list."

Later, Chinellato reported that the two sides have mutual interest. Then, not long after, this...

Meanwhile, Adrian Wojnarowski reports, "Chauncey Billups, 36, has been receiving interest in free agency from the Cleveland Cavaliers, San Antonio Spurs, Dallas Mavericks, Sacramento Kings, Brooklyn Nets and Minnesota Timberwolves, a source told Yahoo! Sports."
