The Memphis Grizzlies are sending Kyle Korver and Jevon Carter to the Phoenix Suns for De'Anthony Melton, Josh Jackson, a 2020 second-round pick and a 2021 conditional second-round pick, per ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Grizzlies will get a chance to rebuild the career of the No. 4 overall pick in the 2017 NBA Draft in Jackson.

The major news in the trade comes from Korver - the 16-year veteran sharpshooter, who is expected to be bought out by the Suns, per Wojnarowski.

The front runners to land Korver are reportedly the Los Angeles Lakers, Milwaukee Bucks and Philadelphia 76ers.

The 37-year-old shooter is coming off of a season where he averaged 8.6 points per game on 39.7% shooting from beyond the arc on 5.0 attempts per game, playing for the Cleveland Cavaliers and Utah Jazz.
