Reachable incentive clauses could push Burks’ deal to $45 million, sources said. Burks has developed into one of the NBA’s better young shooting guards and is a cornerstone of the franchise’s youthful core. Burks, a member of the 2011 NBA draft class, and his agent, Andy Miller, had until midnight EST on Friday to negotiate an extension with Utah – or Burks could’ve entered into restricted free agency in 2015.

After ending discussions on the possibility of a contract extension with the Utah Jazz, center Enes Kanter plans to enter restricted free agency next summer, his agent told Yahoo Sports on Wednesday. “We have mutually agreed with Utah to concentrate on the season and look at our options again in the summer,” agent Max Ergul said in a telephone interview. “Enes likes Utah and the organization very much, and now he can concentrate on continuing to grow as a player and helping them win.” Yahoo! Sports

Kanter, 22, the third overall pick in the 2011 NBA draft, will assuredly benefit from another full year of development, especially under new coach Quin Snyder. Kanter’s size and skill will make him an intriguing player on the summer market, and several teams told Yahoo Sports they’ll be scouting him closely to gauge his full market value and potential. The Jazz have gathered a fine collection of young frontcourt players, including Derrick Favors, Rudy Gobert and Kanter. Yahoo! Sports
