NBA rumors: Celtics, Nuggets interested in Cavs guard Alec Burks originally appeared on nbcsportsboston.com The Cleveland Cavaliers could be among the more active sellers before February's NBA trade deadline, and one player who could be on the move is point guard Alec Burks. Burks was acquired by the Cavs as part of the trade that sent Kyle Korver to the Utah Jazz earlier this month, but he might not be in Cleveland too much longer. The Boston Celtics and Denver Nuggets are among the teams interested in Burks, per longtime NBA writer Sam Amico of Amico Hoops.
Alec Burks was more than just a guy to balance salaries in the Kyle Korver trade.
NEW YORK (AP) - Jordan Clarkson had 20 points and 11 rebounds, newcomer Alec Burks threw down a two-handed dunk with 3.2 seconds left in regulation, and the Cleveland Cavaliers avoided a fourth-quarter collapse and edged the Brooklyn Nets 99-97 on Monday night. Tristan Thompson had 19 points and 14 rebounds
Alec Burks had a more productive visit to Barclays Center than his last one. Playing just his third game for Cleveland after a trade from Utah, Burks threw down a two-handed dunk with 3.2 seconds remaining, and the Cavaliers avoided a fourth-quarter collapse and edged the Brooklyn Nets 99-97 on Monday night. Burks was traded last Wednesday for veteran Kyle Korver and two future second-round picks.
Kyle Korver showed up to training camp with a smile on his face despite wanting off the Cleveland Cavaliers. Some Cleveland Cavaliers are apparently still in denial of the team doing its best to lose games. Long after their handshake agreement to trade Kyle Korver once LeBron James left in free agency and months since Korver reminded the front office to honor that agreement, the Cavaliers finally dealt the 37-year-old sharpshooter to the Utah Jazz for Alec Burks and two second-round picks on Wednesday.
