Cleveland Cavaliers trade Kyle Korver to Utah Jazz

Korver has played 16 National Basketball Association seasons, shooting 43 percent on 3-pointers for his career.

Korver, 37, arrived in Cleveland in January of 2017 in a trade with the Atlanta Hawks and inked a multi-year contract with the Cavs in July of that year. It's knowing that scenes like what unfolded Wednesday - Korver being traded just after he arrived at Chesapeake Energy Arena to play against the Thunder - are possible, even probable.

Kyle Korver spent a little less than three years in Utah, as the veteran sharpshooter suited up for the Jazz from 2007 to 2010.

Before the trade, the Jazz had gone 9-12 overall, with one of their biggest problems a severe lack of 3-point shooting beyond forward Joe Ingles. Whether it's Collin Sexton, Cedi Osman, or other young players, that group has gotten much more of an opportunity to produce than veterans not named Tristan Thompson. In those games, he averaged only 6.8 points per game, but maintained his legendary prowess in 3-point shooting at a rate of 46.3 percent. 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.

Feds pass back-to-work legislation for Canada Post employees
Palacek accused the government of supporting organized labour only when it's convenient and of doing Canada Post's "dirty work". The former Conservative government used back-to-work legislation for Canada Post workers in 2011.

Per Wojnarowski, the Jazz are also sending Alec Burks to Cleveland in the proposed deal. "It's just the timing of it but that's how it goes".

Burks is on a $11.53 million expiring contract, which could have value before the trade deadline. I wish him the best in Cleveland.

"I'm someone who takes pride in shooting the ball, and I'm sure I can learn a lot from him, what he does to prepare, and from what I know of his game, he's great moving without the ball", Allen said.
