Burks, 27, has played with the Jazz, Kings and Cavaliers in his career. Last season, he spent time with each of those teams, as his time with Utah came to a close. He averaged 8.8 points on 36.3 percent shooting from behind the arc.
The addition of Burks should greatly help out the Thunder’s bench scoring. Burks will pair with Dennis Schroder to provide a good scoring punch.
