While the Cavs continue to struggle with a 4-16 record, the second-worst mark in the National Basketball Association, the Jazz are in the playoff hunt in the highly competitive Western Conference.
On Wednesday, the cavs sent their sharp shooter packing to the Utah Jazz.
For Korver, Cleveland will get Utah's 2020 second-round selection along with Washington's 2021 second-rounder.
Besides for the fiscal advantage of no longer paying Korver, the Cavs have picked up some much-needed draft capital with the two second round picks.
Alec Burks, on the other hand, is an expiring contract, making just under $11.3 million this season before he becomes an unrestricted free agent at season's end.
Be that as it may, Kyle Korver is still an important piece for the Jazz in their grind during this season. Kyle Korver's ability to stretch the floor and draw out defenders outside the paint might very well be the edge that Mitchell and Rudy Gobert needs to effectively operate underneath the basket. 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. He's averaging 8.4 points and 1.6 rebounds on 37.2 percent shooting from 3 while Korver, 37, is shooting 46.3 percent from beyond the arc while averaging 6.8 points and 1.8 rebounds per game this season. Alec Burks is the 27 year old nearing his prime in terms of age that still has something to prove.
In three seasons with Cleveland, he averaged 9.3 points per game, mostly scoring his points from jumpers and three-point shots.
