Free agent swingman Kyle Korver has agreed to a one-year, $2.6-million deal with the Milwaukee Bucks, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Korver, 38, will be entering his 17th year in the NBA and joining his sixth team. He also was traded to both Memphis and Phoenix this offseason, with the Suns waiving him earlier this month.

Milwaukee also agreed to a two-way deal with guard Frank Mason, according to The Athletic.

A 42.9 percent career shooter from 3-point range, Korver was widely targeted in free agency.

He played for Bucks coach Mike Budenholzer for three years in Atlanta, which might have factored into his decision. Korver reportedly picked the Bucks over the Philadelphia 76ers.

Korver split last season between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Utah Jazz, averaging 8.6 points, 2.3 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 19.1 minutes per game.

In 1,174 career games, he has averaged 9.9 points in 25.7 minutes per game.

Mason, 25, played the past two seasons with the Sacramento Kings. He averaged 5.1 points in 38 games last season after putting up 7.9 per contest in 52 games (two starts) as a rookie.
