Dunleavy has struggled to find his shot since arriving in Cleveland, and has also battled numerous lingering injuries which has delayed his flow and impact for the reigning champs. With the Hawks giving up sharpshooter Korver, they plan on keeping Dunleavy despite him wanting out of the deal.
This makes the situation difficult for the Cavs, who now play the waiting game for Dunleavy to arrive and confirm the deal. Until then, Korver will wait in the wings until everything is sorted.
