Morning links: Alec Burks has 'nothing but love' for the Utah Jazz

SALT LAKE CITY — Last season was a whirlwind for Alec Burks.

After seven seasons with the Utah Jazz, the talented wing player was traded first to the Cleveland Cavaliers and then the Sacramento Kings. The offseason was also a bit of a scramble as he reversed his verbal agreement to sign with the Oklahoma City Thunder after the Paul George trade and instead signed with the Golden State Warriors.

While being introduced to the Bay Area media, Burks was asked why it didn't work out in Utah.

"I hurt my ankle — that really set me back a couple of years," he said.
