    Cavs Insider & NBA Columnist Sam Amico says the Jazz are shopping Burks, his tweet is below. Surprised there isn't a thread on this yet, the news has been spreading like wildfire on twitter today.

    Sam Amico ‏@SamAmicoFSO
    Word around NBA is Jazz G Alec Burks is available. Burks, the 12th overall draft pick in 2011, has played in just 5 of Jazz's 10 games.


    If the Jazz trade Burks, I'm going to be livid. It goes without saying other Jazz fans will be furious. Unless we get an Eric Bledsoe type of player back they are completely brain dead.

    To be honest this makes me wonder why. If they are trying to unload him is there a reason? Is he uncoachable and the Jazz are trying to unload him efore that starts becoming known? Highly curious.

    Maybe Burks doesn't want to be here because the coaches have no @%#&^$*@ idea how to use the kid.

    What a stupid move. We'll get nowhere near good value here.

    Good job Jazz!

    Might be a stunt by his agent. Maybe Burks has asked for a trade.

    We heard nothing but good things about Burks this summer, and then he was buried on the bench by Corbin.

    Perhaps he and Corbin don't get along. If that is all it is and we lose Burks I will not be happy.

    by the time Corbin gets thrown out as coach,the jazz will be the worst team in the league with just average underachieving vets on the team.Ty is not a coach,you could give him a monkey on sunday and by monday that monkey wouldnt be able to climb a tree.pathetic.

    This is really strange if true. There has to be something we dont know. Burls hasnt been given a real shot to succeed. Its just been short looks here and there.

    I agree. There has to be more to this story or it is a false rumor.

    This is getting ridiculous now... we can't even give Burks an opportunity to grow? Are you kidding me?

    Burks is not what he has been built up to be on this forum.

    That is all.
