Three-time All-Star point guard Deron Williams is en route to Cleveland, and one of his old teammates may have had something to do with it.

According to Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com on Saturday, Cavaliers swingman Kyle Korver helped convince Williams, who was waived by the Dallas Mavericks earlier this week, to join the team.

Korver and Williams were teammates on the Utah Jazz from 2008 to 2010, making the playoffs in all three of their seasons together.
