Jazz trade Burks and picks for Kyle Korver
Jazz acquiring Cavaliers guard Kyle Korver, one of the most coveted players on early-season trade market.Remarkable given he's almost 38 and shot horribly last post-season.
The Cleveland Cavaliers have traded guard Kyle Korver to the Utah Jazz for guard Alec Burks and two future second-round picks, league sources told ESPN.
The Jazz (9-12) have been determined to thrust themselves out of an early-season malaise and pursued Korver to deepen their ability to spread the floor with their shooting. Korver, 37, has been one of the most pursued available players on the trade market.
Utah is sending 2020 and 2021 second-round picks to Cleveland, league sources said. The 2021 pick is via the Washington Wizards.
