Kyle Korver remains thankful to Cleveland after being traded to Jazz

REPORT: Cavs Trade Kyle Korver to Jazz for Alec Burks, 2 Future 2nd-Round Picks

League sources confirmed the trade to FOX 8 Wednesday night.

Kyle Korver spent a little less than three years in Utah, as the veteran sharpshooter suited up for the Jazz from 2007 to 2010.

ESPN first reported the swap.

Korver has put up 6.8 points and 1.8 rebounds for Cleveland so far this season and is averaging 15.7 minutes per game. Subtracting him from the team only makes it harder to win games, they feel. I've never heard "thank you" so many times from fans, even after harder moments.

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. 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.




The team came in ranking 23rd in the National Basketball Association in 3-pointers made per game, with 10.1, and 29th overall in 3-point percentage, at just 31.9 percent. In return, they'll be sending Alec Burks and two future second round drafts picks to the Cavs.

"I was shocked when he told me. But that's how it goes". However, I'm not sure anybody saw a change coming this quickly, yet here we are.

"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 said.

Burks, 27, is in the final year of his contract, making $11.5 million. His salary for next season includes $3.44 million guaranteed, with the full amount becoming protected if he's not waived by July 7.
