Kyle Korver trade: Cavs trade veteran to Jazz for Alec Burks, picks

NBA trade rumors Cavaliers trade F Kyle Korver to Jazz

From there, Korver played for the Utah Jazz, Chicago Bulls, Atlanta Hawks, and most recently the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Now, he'll return to the Jazz, where he played three seasons from 2007 until 2010. In those games, he averaged only 6.8 points per game, but maintained his legendary prowess in 3-point shooting at a rate of 46.3 percent.

Utah clearly has the pieces in place to contend again this year and they just brought aboard an experienced veteran.

We'll call it a win-win for both sides.

Cleveland traded Korver to the Utah Jazz on Wednesday night. While the Cavs continue to struggle with a 4-16 record, the second-worst mark in the National Basketball Association, the Jazz are in the playoff hunt in the highly competitive Western Conference. A former first-round pick, Burks' time with the Jazz never lived up to expectations.

Korver's contract carries a cap hit of $7.6 million this season and $7.5 million for 2019-20, $3.4 million of which is guaranteed.

In 17 games this season, Burks has averaged 8.4 points, 1.6 rebounds, and 1.2 assists per game while shooting 41.2% from the floor.

As far as the Jazz are concerned, their offensive troubles have led them to a 9-12 record - the second-worst mark in the Western Conference and just a year removed from a semifinals appearance. He is a great shooter, in fact in one of his seasons in Utah he shot his career high 3pt% at 54% during the 09-10 season. The Cavs also receive an asset in Burks' expiring contract worth $11.2 million, something they might be able to use in another deal.

The 27-year-old Burks has battled injuries over the past few years. That will be followed by a rematch two weeks later in Salt Lake City.
