Cavaliers Trade Kyle Korver to Jazz for Two Second Round Picks, Burks
As the Cleveland Cavaliers look to get younger, Kyle Korver’s tenure with the organization has come to an end.
On Wednesday, the team announced it has traded the sharp-shooting veteran to the Utah Jazz for Alec Burks and two future second round picks. The picks are slated for 2020 and 2021, with the latter coming via the Washington Wizards.
Similar to the Cavs, the Jazz have struggled mightily this season getting out of the gate, but in luckily for Utah, despite sitting in 13th place in the Western Conference, they are only five games out of first place. The move allows the Jazz to add depth on the wings, while moving on from Burks’ $11.53 million expiring contract.
Korver has previously played for the Utah Jazz, meanwhile Burks has been unable to get his career back on track since suffering an ACL tear.
