Alec Burks, Jazz Agree to New Contract: Latest Details, Reaction and Analysis

The Utah Jazz locked in a key part of their future Friday as they agreed to a contract extension with guard Alec Burks.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports, it is a four-year deal worth $42 million. He is also reporting that Burks could earn even more money through incentives:

The 23-year-old Burks was the 12th-overall selection in the 2011 NBA draft by the Jazz out of Colorado. He is currently in the midst of his fourth professional season, and he is coming off a career year that saw him average 14 points, three rebounds and nearly three assists per game.

Burks is an important member of a young core that also includes the likes of Derrick Favors, Trey Burke, Gordon Hayward, Enes Kanter and Dante Exum.

While Burks has yet to establish himself as a star-caliber player, Ben Anderson of 1320 KFAN views the signing as a smart one by Utah:

The Jazz are a team in transition as they try to become competitive in the Western Conference, but they may not be too far away from playoff contention.

Youthful players like Burks are getting better by the day, and Utah deserves credit for being proactive in an effort to let its future stars continue growing together.
