NBA Report: Cavs Players Upset By Kyle Korver Trade to Utah 3

Adjust Comment Print

This is his 16th National Basketball Association season.

The Cavaliers traded away F Kyle Korver to the Utah Jazz for two future second round picks and SG Alec Burks. Emotionally speaking I would liked to have seen Alec Burks given that chance to prove himself while wearing a Jazz jersey but logically I have to say this was a sound pick up for the Jazz.

Korver was one of the most coveted players on the market, and the Cavs have been shopping him along with forward J.R. Smith, who agreed to step away from the team after being unhappy with his reduced role this season.

Burks' expiring contract - $11.53 million - could have value prior to the February trade deadline.

Korver is returning to a place that he called home for parts of three seasons a decade ago.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski was the first to report the news publicly, but Jazz players already knew what went down.

Kyle Korver spent a little less than three years in Utah, as the veteran sharpshooter suited up for the Jazz from 2007 to 2010. At 10-12, the Jazz have been a disappointment so far.

In 180 career games with Utah, he averaged 8.7 ppg, while shooting 46.1 percent from the field and 41.6 percent from 3-point range. The Jazz now rank 23rd in three-pointers per game, 29th in three-point percentage, 27th in offensive rating and 24th in net rating. Whether it's due to injuries or just being out-talented, the wine and gold seem to be one of the worst teams in the league.

In three seasons with Cleveland, he averaged 9.3 points per game, mostly scoring his points from jumpers and three-point shots.
