Per Spotrac, Korver has one season remaining on the three-year, $22 million contract he previously signed with the Cavs. 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. The Jazz now rank 23rd in three-pointers per game, 29th in three-point percentage, 27th in offensive rating and 24th in net rating. "They're missing shots that they normally make so I think that's something we can definitely improve on". 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. No one dashed around the court trying to get open like Korver did.

The 27-year-old Burks has battled injuries over the past few years.
