The NBA offseason continues as teams finalize their rosters for training camps next month. The Cleveland Cavaliers have also started to make moves after the departure of general manager David Griffin. Here are some new NBA free agency updates:

Cavaliers hold on to Kyle Korver

36-year-old veteran Kyle Korver made his way to Cleveland last season after having an All-Star stay in Atlanta. He struggled in his first few games but later got into his shooting touch with LeBron James creating space and diverting attention on the floor. If the Cleveland Cavaliers want a chance to beat the Golden State Warriors next season, the former NBA All-Star will play a big role in achieving that goal as he is one of the most decorated NBA shooters of all-time.

With that in mind, the Cleveland Cavaliers did not waste time in keeping him around. Kyle Korver has reportedly agreed to stay with the Cavs on a three-year, $22 million contract this offseason. With this contract, the Cavaliers are estimated to pay around $47 million in luxury tax next season per ESPN sources. Kyle Korver entering his 15th NBA season has averaged 10 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 1.8 assists while shooting 41.7% from the field. Korver led the NBA in 3-point shooting percentage every season since 2013 until last year.

Cedi Osman joins Cleveland

The Turkish small forward, Cedi Osman, will now be making his way to the NBA after playing four seasons in the Euroleague under Anadolu Efes.

NBA.com has reported that the Cleveland Cavaliers and Osman have agreed to a three-year, $8.3 million contract this offseason. Osman was originally drafted by the Minnesota Timberwolves with the 31st pick in the 2015 NBA Draft but was traded on draft day to the Cleveland Cavaliers along with Tyus Jones.

Now he has a chance to play with arguably the best NBA player in the world today in LeBron James. He averaged 6.5 points and three rebounds while shooting 42% from the field in 69 games in his stay with Anadolu Efes.

Utah Jazz acquire Thabo Sefolosha

After the departure of George Hill and NBA All-Star Gordon Hayward this offseason, the Utah Jazz are not talented enough to stay competitive in the West but are still too good to rebuild.

Moving forward, the direction of the team could unravel once the season begins. With the small forward spot wide open, the Utah Jazz have decided to sign NBA defensive specialist Thabo Sefolosha to a two-year, $10.5 million deal per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. Thabo will not fully fill the void Hayward left after leaving for Boston but gives the Utah Jazz a solid veteran that can guard well and shoot the three.
