Cavs send Korver to Jazz for G Burks, 2 picks

Alec Burks

Korver played for the Jazz from the 2007-08 season through the 2009-10 season, so this will be a homecoming of sorts for him.

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.

In exchange for Korver, the Cavs will get guard Alec Burks - and his expiring contract - along with two future second-round draft picks, according to the person who spoke on condition of anonymity because the swap has to be approved by the National Basketball Association.

"Everyone was a little bit surprised", Allen said before the Jazz's road game against the Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday.

Information from ESPN's Bobby Marks was used in this report.

"I mean we're not a bad 3-point shooting team, I think guys are just missing shots", Jazz forward Derrick Favors said. "Just the timing of it".

Allen indicated he can learn a thing or two from the 37-year-old Korver, one of the best perimeter shooters in the modern game.

Utah Jazz fans have been somewhat disgruntled to start out the season due to the team's lackluster play and the seeming failure of the plan to rely on continuity to spur the squad on to new heights.

But while he's sad to see one of his teammates go, he's also excited to see what Korver can bring to the team.

Korver's contract calls for him to earn $7.5 million this season. However, I'm not sure anybody saw a change coming this quickly, yet here we are. His salary for next season includes $3.44 million guaranteed, with the full amount becoming protected if he's not waived by July 7.
