Alec Burks dealt from Cleveland to Sacramento as part of three-team deal
Cleveland Cavaliers guard Alec Burks has been traded to the Sacramento Kings as part of a three-team trade, per Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
The final deal has Iman Shumpert, Nik Stauskas, and Wade Baldwin going to the Houston Rockets with Marquese Chriss, Brandon Knight, and a first-round pick headed to Cleveland with Burks and a second-round pick landing with the Kings. For Burks, the role in Sacramento will mean a decrease in minutes and scoring responsibility with Bogdan Bogdanovic likely moving into the starting lineup for the rest of the season.
Burks has averaged 10.6 points, 4.2 rebounds, and 20.9 FanDuel points per game this season.
