VIDEO: Kyle Korver talks about returning to Chicago to take on the Bulls

Monday night's game will mark the return of Kyle Korver to the United Center for the first time since being traded this past offseason.

Kyle Korver returns to Chicago Monday night for the first time as a member of the Atlanta Hawks. Chicago sent Korver to Atlanta in a salary dump during the offseason. Korver spent two seasons in Chicago after signing as a free agent during the summer of 2010.

Korver has fit in well with the Hawks and has become a fixture in the starting lineup. He has started 30 of the 31 games that he has appeared in this season and is averaging 10.3 points while shooting 44 percent from three point range.

Korver will be in the starting lineup on Monday against the Bulls and scored 13 points in the only meeting between the two teams this season. Korver hit 4-8 including 3-6 from downtown in Atlanta's 92-75 win over the Bulls at Philips Arena back on December 22. The Hawks have lost four straight games at the United Center dating back to the 2011 playoffs.
