Burks “Available” On Trade Market

Earlier this week we passed along news that Jazz forward Al Jefferson might be interested in re-joining the Celtics at some point before his career is through (This is Jefferson's final year under contract with the Jazz.) 

Now, it appears another member of the Jazz could be on his way out of town. Second year shooting guard Alec Burks is reportedly "available," according to a tweet from Fox Sports Ohio reporter Sam Amico. Only 21 years old, Burks' per game averages are plummeting across the board. This season he's appeared in only five games, and is averaging just 1.4PPG on 20% shooting. Last season he averaged 7.2PPG. 

No potential suitor was mentioned in the tweet, but it isn't difficult to imagine several teams around the league that might be interested in buying low on this athletic talent.
