Burke said he didn’t even know about Kanter’s comments until he got to New York for the Rising Stars Challenge, which he participated in with teammates Rudy Gobert and Dante Exum, last week. “He didn’t say anything to anyone — I think he was kind of down and let the emotions get the best of him,’’ Burke said. “Enes is a great guy, has a great heart, no one on this team dislikes him. We understand we’re all human beings and let the emotions get the best of us at times. So we understand, if he’s still here, and we hope he is, we’re definitely going to treat him the same way and he's still going to have a significant role on this team.’’ Deseret News

The Milwaukee Bucks are known to be among the teams that have interest, in part because coach Jason Kidd has had a front-row seat to some of Kanter's best games in the past two seasons. He averaged 19.5 points and nine rebounds in two games against Kidd's Brooklyn Nets last season, then finished with 23 points and 16 rebounds in Utah's lone game against the Bucks this season. Kidd, it's safe to say, took notice and would love to add him to his group that has been such a pleasant surprise this season (30-23). USA Today Sports

Jody Genessy: No specifics on Enes Kanter, but what I'm hearing around the league is that a trade is unlikely to happen. Subject to change, of course. Twitter @DJJazzyJody

Enes Kanter and his agent very publicly asked the Jazz last week to trade the young center by Thursday's NBA trade deadline. However, the Jazz are unlikely to bend to Kanter's demand. The Salt Lake Tribune has learned, via NBA sources, that while the team will listen to offers, Kanter is still valued highly by the franchise and very much in its long-term plans. Salt Lake Tribune

The Jazz have not publicly reacted to their center's trade request. The source said that while the team is aggressively surveying the market and fielding calls, it will take a pretty amazing offer to even think about parting with Kanter — who becomes a restricted free agent at the end of the season. Salt Lake Tribune

Enes Kanter: The Jazz’ young big man has been losing playing time to Rudy Gobert, who’ll come much cheaper. Kanter is a free agent and the Jazz has locked up Gordon Hayward, Alec Burks and Derrick Favors. He said he’d like to be traded. The Celtics have been most rumored chasing big men and the Bucks are said to be interested as well. NBA.com

Guard Trey Burke and center Enes Kanter could be on the move; guard Dante Exum and center Rudy Gobert make them expendable. Yahoo! Sports

Ariana Grande was objectively terrible at the halftime show of the NBA All-Star game. She got bailed out by Nicki Minaj, who saved the show from being a complete disaster. Utah Jazz forward Rudy Gobert had some strong words about the whole thing (then later deleted the tweet): Rudy Gobert: No Ariana don't go ass to ass with Nicki you got no chance lol SB Nation
