SALT LAKE CITY - Kyle Korver and Carlos Boozer will remain teammates for the next three seasons.
Korver is following Boozer to Chicago to play for the Bulls with a three-year contract worth about $15 million, according to ESPN.com.
The sharpshooting guard spent the past 2-1/2 seasons in Utah, even setting a single-season 3-point accuracy record in an injury-shortened year with the Jazz in 2009-10.
This will be the third team for Korver, who began his career in Philadelphia. The 29-year-old sniper has averaged 9.9 points and has hit 41 percent of his 3-point shots in the NBA.
On Thursday, the day he inked his own five-year deal with Chicago, Boozer told a Windy City sports-talk program — ESPN 1000's "The Waddle & Silvy Show" — that he would recommend the Bulls pursue Korver.
"Kyle can shoot the heck out of the ball," Boozer said. "He's 6-7, 6-8 with real size and can shoot the ball. In practice he doesn't miss many shots, and then in games when he's on, he's as good as anybody."
