Utah Jazz: Grading the Kyle Korver trade

Jazz rookie guard Grayson Allen says he was surprised to learn of the trade that will send Alec Burks to the Cavaliers

That didn't end up happening before the season, but now, Korver will ultimately be able to play for a relevant team in the Jazz, instead of being on the rebuilding Cavs. He was traded by the Philadelphia 76ers to the Jazz on December 29, 2007, playing in 180 regular-season contests during those three campaigns.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski first reported the story.

Burks, 27, is averaging 8.4 points in 15.8 minutes per game while shooting 37.2 percent from deep in 17 games for Utah this season.

The team previously acquired him from Philadelphia during the 2007-08 campaign. Whether it's Collin Sexton, Cedi Osman, or other young players, that group has gotten much more of an opportunity to produce than veterans not named Tristan Thompson.

Cavaliers Knew LeBron James Would Depart For Lakers Again In 2016
LeBron James scored 24 points, but committed a game-high six turnovers, as the Lakers fell to the Magic. I can see it, but sometimes for you personally, you have to continue to figure it out.

While Smith had been sitting out Cleveland's last several games and will continue to sit out until he's traded, Korver had remained in the Cavaliers' rotation. After starting strong shooting the ball, he dipped to 42.2 percent overall, and 37.2 percent from deep - albeit on 2.5 attempts per game.

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

"I mean we're not a awful 3-point shooting team, I think guys are just missing shots", Jazz forward Derrick Favors said. "It's just the timing of it but that's how it goes". He will make $7.56 million this year and has $7.5 million on his deal for next year, although less than half of it is guaranteed.

"I'm someone who takes pride in shooting the ball, and I'm sure I can learn a lot from him, what he does to prepare, and from what I know of his game, he's great moving without the ball", Allen added.
