Korver, 39, joined the Bucks last summer in order to finally win a title.

Prior to the coronavirus pandemic pausing the 2019-20 season in March, the Bucks looked like they were in ideal shape to capture the championship. The Bucks, led by superstar Giannis Antetokounmpo, have the best record in the league.

Several players, including Korver’s former teammate, Kyrie Irving, are hesitant about returning to action due to racial tensions and virus concerns.

After all, numerous players in the league contracted the contagious virus.

Korver and Crowder have played together a couple of times over the course of their careers. As a matter of fact, they competed alongside each other on the Utah Jazz last season.

Now, both journeyman are on Eastern Conference contenders and could very well meet in the postseason.
