Kyle Korver Was Traded For A Copier [VIDEO]
This time of colleges are always looking for people to give motivational speeches to their graduating students. Just last weekend New York Yankee legend Joe Torre spoke at Skidmore. Creighton University invited NBA star and former Creighton star Kyle Korver back for their commencement speech. Korver's speech held a few gems but the fact he was once traded for a Copy Machine is my favorite.
Korver was the 51st pick in the 2003 NBA draft by the New Jersey Nets and was almost immediately traded to the Philadelphia 76ers for cash. Some of that money apparently went to office supplies.
"I was more or less sold for an undisclosed amount of money. I later found out [the Nets] used that money to pay for the entry fee for their summer league team, and with the leftover money, they bought a copy machine, But it's okay. Because a couple of years ago, that copy machine broke. And I'm still playing."
Korver's made about $80 Million in the NBA so he's done pretty well by himself. The trade comments are at the 11 minute mark of the video above.
