Korver has one more year remaining on his current contract, worth $7.5 million.
FILE - In this Monday, Oct. 8, 2018, file photo, Cleveland Cavaliers forward Kyle Korver (26) keeps the ball away from Indiana Pacers guard Victor Oladipo (4) during the third quarter of a preseason NBA basketball game, in Cleveland. This will be Korver's second stint in Utah, as the guard played for the Jazz from 2007-2010.
Kyle Korver has gotten his wish. He had anthropic surgery on his ankle which again caused him to miss most of the 16-17 season.
"I mean we're not a bad 3-point shooting team, I think guys are just missing shots", Jazz forward Derrick Favors said.
Korver's contract calls for him to earn $7.5 million this season. While he didn't want to move his family during the season, he and his wife met in Utah and the family is familiar with the area, so if anything, at least they will move to a place that they not only are familiar with but like as well.
Hazard ruled out of Europa League clash
I had a good assist from my team-mates, I love this kind of ball behind the defence. But Kante has to stay near to Jorginho.
SportsLine data scientist Stephen Oh projects that the Jazz will have a significantly better chance of making the playoffs after acquiring Korver.
He is headed to the Cavs with two second-round picks (reportedly in 2020 and 2021) in return for the veteran Korver, who is coming off a 22-point game Monday vs. the Minnesota Timberwolves. There have been repeated times where the Jazz have run good offensive sets, have generated an open look, and have had the shot clang off the rim. 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.
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.
The Cavs have played well lately and hopefully Burks can acclimate himself quickly and seamlessly to the team.
