Cavaliers reportedly trade guard Korver to Utah Jazz

  • Space case By acquiring Kyle Korver the Jazz offense gets some breathing room

The trade to Utah gives Cleveland some flexibility and trading chips while letting Korver play for a potential contender in a Western Conference jam-packed with playoff aspirations.

Korver is averaging just 6.8 points per game in 15.7 minutes a night, both of which are his fewest since his rookie season in 2003-04. Korver ranks 6th all-time in National Basketball Association history in 3-pt field goal percentage at.432, and is second only to Steph Curry among active players.

Korver was in the second year of a three year, $22 million deal with the Cavs before the trade. He had anthropic surgery on his ankle which again caused him to miss most of the 16-17 season.

Steph sends handwritten letter to girl with shoe question
Riley Morrison, a 9-year-old from Napa, loves the game of basketball and at the top of her list of role models is Stephen Curry . Well, Curry wrote back, and the response was great. "Unfortunately we have labelled the smaller sizes as "boys" on the website".

Kyle Korver has gotten his wish.

Be that as it may, Kyle Korver is still an important piece for the Jazz in their grind during this season.

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

Trump holds Biloxi, Mississippi rally for embattled Republican Cindy Hyde-Smith
Hyde-Smith, 59, has touted her support for Trump and her endorsement by the president, who won MS by 18 percentage points in 2016. Hyde-Smith won 41 percent of the vote November 6, Espy 40 percent, and McDaniel 17 percent, eliminating McDaniel for the runoff.

For Korver, Cleveland will get Utah's 2020 second-round selection along with Washington's 2021 second-rounder. 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.

His three-point abilities should provide a boost to the Jazz as he returns to Utah for the second time. The Cavs, however, have only won four games this season and are now in last place in the Eastern Conference.

The Cavs have played well lately and hopefully Burks can acclimate himself quickly and seamlessly to the team.

Donald Trump Defends Using Tear Gas Against Migrants
What do they want me to do? Trump wants migrants to remain in Mexico while their United States asylum cases are adjudicated. It came after some migrants tried to breach the crossing point in Tijuana, yesterday, where around 9,000 people are camped.

Korver was one of the most coveted players on the market, and the Cavs have been shopping him along with forward J.R. Smith, who agreed to step away from the team after being unhappy with his reduced role this season.
