Chris Broussard of ESPN.com tweeted this morning that the Brooklyn Nets are out of the running for free agent forward Kyle Korver:

The Nets could only offer Korver, one of the league’s best three-point shooters, a three-year deal worth approximately $10 million. Given the deals agreed to by guards like Tony Allen (4 years, $20 million), Martell Webster (4 years, $22 million), J.J. Redick (4 years, $27 million), and Kevin Martin (4 years, $28 million), a three-year deal for the taxpayer midlevel exception is less than he could get on the open market.
NETS RT @KalebKorver: Too excited for my (possibly) new favorite NBA team.
With Korver off the market, the Nets will swing their focus to other targets, such as Chicago Bulls free agent Marco Belinelli or Croatian Eurostash Bojan Bogdanovic.
