Kyle Korver to return to Jazz

Kyle Korver to return to Jazz

In 16 games with the Cavaliers this year, Korver was averaging 15.7 minutes of action per contest. The trade might not become official until Thursday.

Korver had reportedly been in trade rumors for a while now, and with the Cavs sending him to Utah for Burks and two future second-round picks, I'll take that.

The Cavs also receive an asset in Burks' expiring contract worth $11.2 million, something they might be able to use in another deal.

"Everyone was a little bit surprised", Allen said before the Jazz's road game against the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday. "AB is my guy". "I'm sure there's a lot I can watch from him and it will be cool to have that up close". "I have always admired his shooting". Burks will be an unrestricted free agent following the season.

Burks is 10 years younger than Korver.

Kyle Korver has finally been traded by the Cleveland Cavaliers. This will be Korver's second time playing in Utah, with the first outing taking place from 2007 to 2010.

The Jazz have been a disappointment so far, and Korver fills the club's need for an outside shooter. But Korver's range should open the floor for Mitchell and others. "I think Kyle Korver can help out with that but overall I don't think we're a bad-shooting team". He's been on the trading block for most of the season and had drawn interest from several teams. The 37-year-old is making $7.56 million this season and is set to make $7.5 million next season. It was there that Korver had his most prolific season from behind the arc, shooting a blistering 53.6 percent from downtown during the 2009-10 campaign, which is still an National Basketball Association record for a single season.
