A surprise trade by the Utah Jazz — a familiar face is returning: fan favorite Kyle Korver.

Several reports say Kyle Korver of the Cleveland Cavaliers has been traded to Utah in exchange for Alec Burks and two future second-round picks.

Korver spent 2 and a half seasons in Utah from 2007 to 2010. In his last season here, he shot nearly 54 percent from the 3-point line. And analysts say that’s what the team needs as they are 2nd to last in the NBA in 3 point percentage.

Korver spent the last 3 seasons in Cleveland and will turn 38 in March.

“He met his wife in Utah, and it’s more comfortable for his family,” said ESPN NBA Reporter Brian Windhorst.

Jazz players say they will miss AB.
