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

Before signing his three-year, $22.6 million contract with the Cleveland Cavaliers prior to the 2017-18 season, he and the front office supposedly verbally agreed that if LeBron James were to leave and the Cavs would tank, the team would trade the veteran during the offseason, that way his family wouldn't have to pack up and move midseason.

For his career, he has averaged 9.9 ppg on 44.4 percent shooting and 43.2 percent from deep. Korver previously played three seasons with the Jazz, when the 76ers traded him during the 2007-08 season. They presently have a 10-12 record, the third-worst mark in the conference, but they're within two games of the team now in the seventh spot, the Los Angeles Lakers.

The first opportunity that Korver will get to play for the Jazz will be Friday night, when they continue an Eastern road trip with a game at Charlotte. He joined the Chicago Bulls as a free agent in 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.

Burks, meanwhile, leaves the only franchise he has ever known.

Military buildup underway on both sides of Russia-Ukraine border
President Proeshenko has claimed Russia's military activity and tank deployments have "dramatically increased" along Ukraine's borders.

However, the forte of his game, has been as a slasher rather than a shooter - he is a career 42.5-percent shooter from the field, and a 35.5-percent shooter from deep. Simply put, if Quin Snyder's team can't make 3-pointers, the very thing his offense is created to do, it's nearly dead on arrival.

Ahead of the Utah Jazz's tipoff against the Brooklyn Nets, Alec Burks broke the news to his teammates that he had just been traded.

"I was shocked when he told me", said Jazz rookie Grayson Allen. "Everyone was a little bit surprised", Allen said. "It's just the timing of it but that's how it goes". I wish him the best in Cleveland. His salary for next season includes $3.44 million guaranteed, with the full amount becoming protected if he's not waived by July 7.

Burks is on a $11.53 million expiring contract, which could have value before the trade deadline.
