Burks reaches agreement on contract with Thunder

Free agent guard Alec Burks has agreed to a contract with the Oklahoma City Thunder, according to a report from Royce Young of ESPN.

After spending his first seven years with the Utah Jazz, Burks bounced around last season, appearing in 17 games with the Jazz and 34 with the Cleveland Cavaliers. He was then traded to the Sacramento Kings, where he appeared in 13 games.

Burks, 27, averaged 8.4 points with each the Jazz and Cavaliers.

“The former lottery pick is a career 35.5 percent 3-point shooter, so he may be able to provide Oklahoma City with some much-needed floor spacing,” Luke Adams of Hoops Rumors wrote.
