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

Cleveland traded veteran guard Kyle Korver to Utah for Alec Burks and two future second-round draft picks Wednesday, and some of Korver's now-former Cavs teammates were reportedly upset by the move.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski first reported the story.

The Cavaliers had been shopping Korver for several weeks.

For his career, he has averaged 9.9 ppg on 44.4 percent shooting and 43.2 percent from deep.

Korver returns to Utah, where he spent three seasons with the Jazz from 2007-2010, including making a career-best 53.6 percent of his three-pointers in 2009-10, which continues to be the best percentage in a single season in National Basketball Association history. I've never heard "thank you" so many times from fans, even after harder moments. He joined the Chicago Bulls as a free agent in 2010.

Burks, meanwhile, leaves the only franchise he has ever known. Korver, 37, has been one of the most pursued available players on the trade market. In 16 games for the Cavs this season, he shot 46.3 percent from 3-point range.

However, the forte of his game, has been as a slasher rather than a shooter - he is a career 42.5-percent shooter from the field, and a 35.5-percent shooter from deep. Korver had 22 points on 6-of-9 3-point shooting in a recent loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves. 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.

"I was surprised", Jazz star Donovan Mitchell said of the deal that was agreed to shortly before Utah's 101-91 victory in Brooklyn.

"I think just overall I'm really grateful for my time in Cleveland", Korver said. "I'm sure there's a lot I can watch from him and it will be cool to have that up close".

Korver's contract calls for him to earn $7.5 million this season.
