When the Cleveland Cavaliers agreed to trade Kyle Korver to the Utah Jazz on Wednesday, it was done with the idea that the move will help both teams.
But will it?
The Jazz are in desperate need of outside shooting, and that has always been Korver's strength. He has been among the greatest 3-point specialists of the modern era, perhaps ever. But at the age of 37, he doesn't offer much else.
Meanwhile, the Cavs received a shooting guard who has clearly been on the decline, in terms of minutes and productivity, in Alec Burks. (They also received two future second-round picks.)
Burks has an expiring contract, which are always valuable when you're a rebuilding team such as the Cavs. It's their way of auditioning a player in a season that promises to be full of auditions.
The Cavs can trade Burks in a package before the February deadline. Or maybe his arrival makes them more comfortable in moving Rodney Hood.
And don't rule out a package of Hood or Burks and J.R. Smith to the Houston Rockets at some point.
Anyway, that's all a topic for another day. For now, let us know who you think won the trade in the poll below, and join the conversation in the comments section at the bottom of this post.
