NBA Trade Grades: Jazz acquire Kyle Korver from Cavaliers

Cleveland Cavaliers guard Kyle Korver remains lethal as a shooter however hitting 46.3 per cent of his three-pointers above his career average of 43.2 per cent

ESPN first reported the sharpshooting Korver is on the move.

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

In 16 games with the Cavaliers this year, Korver was averaging 15.7 minutes of action per contest. They presently have a 10-12 record, the third-worst mark in the conference, but they're within two games of the team now in the seventh spot, the Los Angeles Lakers.

"I was surprised", Jazz star Donovan Mitchell said of the deal that was agreed to shortly before Utah's 101-91 victory in Brooklyn. It was there that Korver had his most prolific season from behind the arc, shooting a blistering 53.6 percent from downtown during the 2009-10 campaign, which is still an National Basketball Association record for a single season. Korver had 22 points on 6-of-9 3-point shooting in a recent loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Tsai has made little progress despite campaigning on a promise of marriage equality in the run-up to elections in 2016. The island has been self-ruling since 1949 but China regards it as a breakaway province it will reunite with one day.

The Jazz will welcome Korver's three-point shooting and veteran presence with open arms; Korver actually was on the Jazz for three seasons earlier in his career as well, and he could give them an added spark in spurts for the postseason if they get there (which I believe they will).

"I think just overall I'm really grateful for my time in Cleveland", Korver said. He's been on the trading block for most of the season and had drawn interest from several teams. "Obviously, being around, I know how that goes but it's something you never want to see with guys going but I wish the best for him".

Burks is making $11.3 million this season and will become an unrestricted free agent in the summer. His salary for next season includes $3.44 million guaranteed, with the full amount becoming protected if he's not waived by July 7.
