Utah’s former No. 10 has had an eventful summer to be sure. One week after reaching agreement with the Oklahoma City Thunder on a deal, Alec Burks executed an offseason redirect and elected instead to take his ball over to the Bay Area.
Burks will instead sign a one-year pact with the Golden State Warriors, per reports. His decision came in the wake of OKC’s move to deal Paul George to the LA Clippers.
“Alec was extremely appreciative about how the Thunder handled the situation and he’s looking forward to his new opportunity,” Burks’ agent told The Athletic’s Shams Charania.
In either case, Burks is looking for a bounce-back year in 2019-20. After getting significant run with the Jazz and Cleveland Cavaliers early (he started 24 games and averaged over 11 points per contest in Cleveland), he was dealt to the Sacramento Kings where he largely sat at the end of their bench.
He’ll have to fight for time, but he definitely has a good shot at regular minutes for a winning team with the Dubs.
