Christian Villere is joined by Sacramento Kings Beat Blogger, Jon Schifferle. The fellas get into the win column against the Knicks and some more discussion about De'Aaron Fox. Then they hit on the offensive flow…
February 9, 2019, 1:11 amAlec Burks - G - Sacramento Kings
Alec Burks played 15 minutes off the bench in his debut for the Kings on Friday and recorded nine points, four rebounds, one assist and one steal.
The worries of Burks stealing some of Bogdan Bogdanovic's time and opportunities may have been overblown. BogBog logged 34 minutes off the bench tonight and delivered 16 points (6-of-14 shooting), five rebounds, four assists, two 3s and two steals. Bogdanovic is fine. Deploy him as you would moving forward.

Harrison Barnes, Alec Burks and Corey Brewer are all available to play on Friday vs. the Heat.
With a load of new players in town, it’ll be very interesting how Barnes fits, and whether he will play more small forward in Iman Shumpert’s former spot or if he’ll steal some minutes from Neminja Bjelica and Marvin Bagley at the 4. It’ll also be worth watch how Alec Burks impacts Bogdan Bogdanovic.

Alec Burks has been traded to the Kings in a three-team deal that sends Marquese Chriss, Brandon Knight and a protected 2019 first-round pick (from HOU) to the Cavs, while the Kings land Iman Shumpert
Burks may or may not start for the Kings once he arrives so, Bogdan Bogdanovic's path to upside does not have clear skies on the horizon. Burks will take a value hit given his reduced role on a youth-oriented team with more talent rostered than the Cavs.

Jason Lloyd of The Athletic reported on Tuesday that the Cavs and Rockets are engaged on talks centered around Alec Burks.
The deal would send Brandon Knight and the Rockets' first round pick to Cleveland and give Houston a much-needed playmaker off the bench. There wouldn't be any massive shift in fantasy value, though Burks has been playing above his head recently.

Alec Burks shot 9-for-19 from the field for 21 points with four boards, two assists, two steals and two 3-pointers in 37 minutes against the Celtics on Tuesday.
Burks continued his useful play with another solid outing, filling up the stat sheet with money counting stats. He is just inside the top-100 for the last 30 days and is worthy of standard league consideration, depending on your needs.
February 2, 2019, 11:16 pmAlec Burks - G - Cleveland Cavaliers
Alec Burks, in a loss to the Mavs on Saturday, put up 11 points with eight rebounds and five assists in a team-high 34 minutes of action.
He has been just outside the top-100 over the past month and is a solid late-round option as long as he is on the Cavs. Rumors are swirling around that he might get dealt prior to the trade deadline. Jordan Clarkson, who scored 19 points in this game, could also be traded and helped his value with this performance.
February 2, 2019, 2:54 pmAlec Burks - G - Cleveland Cavaliers
The Cavs are trying to trade Alec Burks and Rodney Hood, among others, before the deadline.
Hardly surprising as Burks and Hood have been rumored to be on the move basically all season — or at least since joining the Cavs, in Burks' case. Cleveland might be willing to trade anyone and everyone short of Kevin Love and Collin Sexton here, so expect at least one transaction before 3 PM EST on Thursday. ESPN's Zach Lowe mentioned that the Cavs considered dealing Burks to the Rockets for Brandon Knight and a pick, so keep an eye on those two parties. There could be so much turnover for the Cavs that anyone could emerge with fantasy value in the second half.

Alec Burks scored 18 points and grabbed eight rebounds in Sunday's win against the Bulls to go along with two assists, three 3-pointers and a turnover.
Burks was 6-for-13 from the field and while he didn't record a defensive stat, he had a solid game overall. He's extremely up-and-down, but is still worth something in 16-team or deeper leagues. He's on the trading block again, but it's unclear if the Cavs will be able to move any of their inefficient guards. Meanwhile, Cedi Osman continued his inefficient play as a forward as he went 6-for-17 from the field with 17 points and eight boards.
January 21, 2019, 4:38 pmAlec Burks - G - Cleveland Cavaliers
Alec Burks was invisible in Monday's loss to the Bulls, drawing a start but only posting three points and five rebounds in 17 minutes.
You might not have been able to see Burks, but you could probably hear him clank his way to a 1-of-7 shooting line. He was flirting with middle-round numbers for a couple weeks but turned back into a pumpkin last week, and this game doesn't really bode well for his upcoming batch of games. There's going to be lots of inconsistency but you could probably do worse than Burks in a 16-team league.
January 14, 2019, 12:05 amAlec Burks - G - Cleveland Cavaliers
Alec Burks put up 17 points with 13 rebounds as the Cavs snapped their 12-game losing streak against the Lakers on Sunday.
The entire Cavs starting five was fantastic in this game and Burks continued his solid play as of late. He has been putting up top-60 value over the past two weeks and has fit in well with the Cavs since getting traded to them. Collin Sexton and Rodney Hood had similar lines as both had three rebounds, three assists and one steal, but Sexton had 17 points and Hood had 18 points. The Cavs are in tank mode, so it is a good sign for them that they need everyone to play this well to beat a LeBron-less Lakers team.
January 11, 2019, 11:40 pmAlec Burks - G - Cleveland Cavaliers
Alec Burks was one of the few bright spots for the Cavs in their 113-141 loss to the blazing Rockets on Friday, recording a solid line featuring 13 points on 5-of-10 shooting, seven rebounds, four dimes, a trey, a steal and two blocks.
Alec Burks has fit this young and injury-plagued Cavs team like a glove since joining them, recording enough juice in fantasy to be worth owning in 14-team leagues or deeper.
