Utah Jazz: Grading the Kyle Korver trade

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

Korver had asked to be traded if LeBron left the Cavaliers, and when he wasn't this offseason, he didn't make a fuss.

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. They join the Rockets as some of the most disappointing teams in the West so far this season and will be looking to Kyle Korver to give them a boost. He is on a very team friendly contract, this year and next year at 7.5 million whereas Alec Burks is in his last year of his contract making 11.5 million. Korver was traded to the Jazz during the 07-08 season and played for the J-notes till the end of the 2010 season.

With several teams off to disappointing starts to the 2018-19 National Basketball Association season, it was only a matter of time before the first trade came through.

Korver has played for the Cavaliers since 2017 and was a vital piece in the team's offense coming off the bench.

Three US service members killed in Afghanistan blast
Since the start of 2015, 58 Americans have been killed, President Ashraf Ghani said earlier this month. While in Afghanistan, CBS News joined US troops in an operation to clear an area of ISIS fighters.

On Wednesday, the cavs sent their sharp shooter packing to the Utah Jazz. The former All-Star had a productive stint in Cleveland, helping lead them to two Finals appearances while averaging 9.3 points per game on 46.8 percent from the field and 45.4 percent from beyond the arc in his time there.

The eighth-year pro has career averages of 9.6 points in 20.8 minutes per game across 382 contests (43 starts), all for Utah, which drafted him 12th overall in 2011. Simply put, if Quin Snyder's team can't make 3-pointers, the very thing his offense is created to do, it's nearly dead on arrival. They're unexpectedly in the bottom-five teams in the Western Conference and have been struggling to get anything going after a more-than-promising preseason.

His three-point abilities should provide a boost to the Jazz as he returns to Utah for the second time. He seemed to enjoy Salt Lake City when he lived here.

Per Wojnarowski, the Jazz are also sending Alec Burks to Cleveland in the proposed deal.
