Kyle Korver was taken by the New Jersey Nets with the 51st pick in the 2003 NBA Draft. He was traded on draft day by the Nets to the Philadelphia 76ers for cash considerations. The Nets famously — or infamously — used the cash from that trade to purchase an office copier.
More than a decade and a half later, Korver is still playing in the NBA at age 38. And now, thanks to Korver giving the commencement speech at his alma mater Creighton, we have an update on the status of that copier.
Kyle Korver noted in commencement address at Creighton Saturday that he found out the copy machine the Nets purchased with the cash considerations obtained in draft day trade with 76ers no longer works. He still does.

Kyle Korver does not have a depreciation expense method. He is timeless.
