He spent three years with the Jazz before departing after the 2009-10 season.
In 180 games for Utah, Korver averaged 8.7 points. He remains ninth on the team’s all-time list for 3-pointers with 235.
"He’s a pleasant guy," coach Tyrone Corbin said. "He cares about where he lives. He’s a giving person who gives as much as he can to be a part of [the community].
"He’s a tremendous teammate, too. He’s easy to work with — from a coaching standpoint — and he understands who he is. He’s a shooter who does everything he can to get shots in his spots and help you win."
Against Boston, Corbin started Earl Watson over Jamaal Tinsley at point guard and played Alec Burks down the stretch.
"I thought Earl created pace for us, other than the third quarter, when we didn’t have the pace we wanted," Corbin said. "But I thought the beginning of the game was real good."
Still, Corbin plans to "revisit" his point guard rotation before facing the Hawks.
