What the Utah Jazz agreed to Wednesday afternoon wasn't a "panic trade", per se, but it certainly comes from a place of high discomfort. In return, they'll be sending Alec Burks and two future second round drafts picks to the Cavs.

Almost 11 years after he was first traded to Utah, the Cleveland Cavaliers have made a decision to send Korver back out west.

Korver, 37, has been one of the most pursued available players on the trade market.

Burks carries a salary of $11.5 million this year, the final year of his deal.

Korver, 37, says he's happy to move back to Salt Lake City, where he played for the Jazz from 2007-10.

A number of contenders had "significant interest" in trading for Korver, Wojnarowski added in his report. 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.

Kyle Korver has gotten his wish.

Korver has made 2,238 career 3-pointers, fourth-most in National Basketball Association history and tops among current players.

"I mean we're not a awful 3-point shooting team, I think guys are just missing shots", Jazz forward Derrick Favors said. He became expendable this season in Cleveland as the Cavs are in rebuilding mode after losing LeBron James as a free agent and are acquiring assets.

The 27-year-old Burks has battled injuries over the past few years. In fact, the 16-year veteran had his best game of the season recently, scoring 22 points in 22 minutes of action in a loss to the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday night.
