Warriors vs. Jazz preview: Golden State is back in action at home aiming for first place

That look on Alec Burks face might sum up the Utah Jazz fans' feeling towards tonight's game - this one has a chance of not being too competitive. If that's the case we'll hopefully ooh and ahh at a few passes, crossovers, and transition plays as we continue to build on the new fundamentals that Steve Kerr is instilling. When/Where: 7:30 PM Pacific Time at Oracle Arena. Watch/Listen: The game will be broadcasted on NBA League Pass, CSN Bay Area, and ROOT SPORTS, as well as KZNS and KNBR 680 AM. Standings: We are 8-2, ranked second in the Western Conference, while the Jazz are 5-7 at 11th....

Utah Jazz Alec Burks has fairly tale happy ending, reports Moni

This will be the best thing you read all day Hours before the rookie scale contract extension deadline the Utah Jazz and Alec Burks came to an agreement on a $41+ million dollar deal, over four years and with a number of incentives along the way. This information was covered online, and at this site, here, here, and here. Other places, from the big brands like ESPN, SI, etc, had their say as well. Some delved into the numbers, others into the future speculation. But no one has covered the entire ordeal in the big picture -- except Moni. From being a highly regarded NCAA player, to a...

Utah Jazz early season defensive struggles not indicative of strategic failure, just overmatched ability

Alec Burks' contract, Halloween, Defense, Offense, what to be happy about, social media . . .and . . . Rat Bag the coward? Some pretty important things happened yesterday, first of all, Alec Burks , his camp (who also represent Trevor Booker, among others), and the Utah Jazz agreed on a contract extension. While most of us reported that it was worth $42 million in total, Jody Genessy was right that it is a harder to pin down contract value because of incentives. Later on the bosses over at Basketball Insiders got the deets (obviously there's a leak in the office somewhere) and it's a...

Utah Jazz salary updated with new Alec Burks contract details

Thanks to BBAll Insiders So just as I suspected, the Alec Burks contract that the Utah Jazz gave him is back-loaded, so allow for more flexibility this off-season. @NateDuncanNBA Do you know if Burks' contract is backloaded?

Reports: Utah Jazz, Alec Burks agree to four-year, $42 million extension

According to the latest WojBomb, the Jazz have locked up the talented scorer for the next four years. The Utah Jazz may have failed to come to terms on a contract extension for big man Enes Kanter, but they appear to have made sure that shooting guard Alec Burks won't escape their grasp: Yahoo Sources: The Utah Jazz's Alec Burks has reached agreement on a four-year, $42 million extension. http://t.co/nxTWC7JnNf — Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojYahooNBA) October 31, 2014 With reachable incentives, Alec Burks' deal with the Jazz could climb to $45 million, sources told Yahoo Sports. —...

Mehmet Okur Left His Heart In Salt Lake City: The Downbeat #1485

We love Memo, Alec Burks loves free throws, everyone loves FanPosts, and Shums loves Adventure Time a little too much. It's your Wednesday Downbeat. So, how about that game last night, eh? No, seriously, I'm asking. If a preseason game happens in Oklahoma City, and no one televises it, did it actually happen? It's crazy to me that generic illegal video streaming websites from Sketchoslovakia can have video of the Jazz game, but NBALP/ROOT can't. — Andy Larsen (@andyblarsen) October 22, 2014 Broadcast-related whining aside, that was pretty cool of the Jazz, going into OKC and...
