But as Burks preps for his first return to Salt Lake City since that emotional deal, he has the benefit of hindsight on his side. It’s allowed Burks to have a greater appreciation for Cleveland, as the rebuilding Cavaliers continue to give him a bigger platform. “I would say there’s more opportunity here, definitely,” Burks told cleveland.com. “I think it’s been great. Been up and down. Still going to be up and down I feel like just trying to find a rhythm. Only been like a month in. But it’s getting better and better. I’m adjusting more and more every day.”
In 25 games with the Cavs, including 16 starts, Burks is averaging 11.9 points — the most since 2015-16 — on 40.2 percent from the field and 39.8 percent from long range to go with 5.2 rebounds, 2.7 assists and some stingier-than-anticipated defense. “I’m extremely happy for him,” Hood said of Burks. “I think a lot of guys, particularly in Utah, know how talented he is, especially before he had some key injuries. He’s one of the most talented guys I’ve been around and played with. Just happy to see him healthy and getting the opportunity to show what he can do on both sides of the ball — being able to defend, finish, knock down shots. He can do pretty much everything out there on the court.”
