Utah Jazz: Grading the Kyle Korver trade

Kyle Korver #26 of the Cleveland Cavaliers does an interview on Media Day at Cleveland Clinic Courts

The Cavaliers have reportedly traded veteran sharpshooter Kyle Korver to the Jazz in exchange for guard Alec Burks, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. The trade might not become official until Thursday. Korver previously played three seasons with the Jazz, when the 76ers traded him during the 2007-08 season.

He's making over $11.5 million this season, per Spotrac, but his contract expires after this season. "I'm sure there's a lot I can watch from him and it will be cool to have that up close". Burks will be an unrestricted free agent following the season. They began this season thinking they could compete for a playoff spot while developing young players, but after a coaching change and rash of injuries, Cleveland's priorities have shifted and the team decided it was time ship Korver elsewhere. What the Utah Jazz agreed to Wednesday afternoon wasn't a "panic trade", per se, but it certainly comes from a place of high discomfort.

NASA's Insight Mission: When will it land and why should we care?
And don't expect a flurry of data just after landing today: InSight's science work won't begin in earnest for several months . The spacecraft will then send out two signals-one to say it has landed then another to confirm it was a successful touchdown.

The Jazz have been a disappointment so far, and Korver fills the club's need for an outside shooter. The shooting guard was selected No. 12 overall in the 2011 NBA Draft out of Colorado, and has appeared in 382 career games with the team, averaging 9.6 points, 2.9 rebounds, and 1.6 assists. But Korver's range should open the floor for Mitchell and others. I've never heard "thank you" so many times from fans, even after harder moments.

The 27-year-old Burks has battled injuries over the past few years. Korver's only averaging 6.8 points per game, but he's still shooting.463 from the outside and is one of the greatest 3-point shooters in National Basketball Association history.
