Alec Burks to Knicks

What’s the buzz on Twitter?

Evan Sidery @esidery
The Pistons have traded Bojan Bogdanovic and Alec Burks to the Knicks for Evan Fournier, Quentin Grimes and Malachi Flynn, per @wojespn.
New York makes their big deadline move with Detroit. AM

Ryan Blackburn @NBABlackburn
Okay. Bojan and Burks to the Knicks for Grimes, Fournier, Malachi Flynn, and two second rounders makes a LOT more sense than just the Grimes for Burks deal. – 11:26 AM
James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Bojan Bogdanovic is going to New York along with Alec Burks, per sources. – 11:25 AM
Tommy Beer @TommyBeer
Grimes / Burks salaries don’t match – so there has to be additional pieces involved – 11:25 AM
Barry Jackson @flasportsbuzz
So Rozier to Heat; Anunoby&Burks to NY; Hield to 76ers; Tillman to Celts in notable deals involving Eastern playoff teams. At this point, trading a future 1st would leave Heat without a tradable first. And there’s no real sweet spot contract (unless hypothetically Duncan) to deal – 11:24 AM
Ian Begley @IanBegley
Knicks remain engaged with DET on Bojan Bogdanovic as they agree to deal that sends Alec Burks to DET for package including Quentin Grimes, sources said. Draft compensation on Bogdanovic has been discussed as package including Evan Fournier. ESPN/The Athletic first on Burks deal – 11:24 AM
Steve Popper @StevePopper
I know Thibs like Burks, but had heard up until an hour ago they were valuing Grimes as piece for summer deal. Pretty high price to pay for 32-year-old on expiring contract (one he signed with Knicks btw) – 11:23 AM
Ball Don’t Lie @Balldontlie
The Pistons have agreed to send Alec Burks to the Knicks in exchange for Quentin Grimes, per @ShamsCharania. AM

Synergy Sports Tech @SynergySST
Alec Burks has shot an eFG% of 62% in catch and shoot situations and 50% pulling up off the dribble this season. – 11:19 AM
Adrian Wojnarowski @wojespn
The Detroit Pistons are finalizing a trade to send guard Alec Burks to the New York Knicks, sources tell ESPN. AM

Ian Begley @IanBegley
NYK interest in Bojan Bogdanovic dates back to 2023 deadline. Sources confirm NYK has touched base w/DET on both Bogdanovic & Alec Burks. DET has been listening to teams on Bogdanovic. NYK/DET has talked about different draft compensation on Burks & Bogdanovic. Yahoo 1st on talks – 11:06 AM
Ian Begley @IanBegley
The Buddy Hield to PHI deal impacts market for NYK target Alec Burks. PHI and DET had talked about package including Marcus Morris and 2nd round picks for deal that would’ve sent Burks back to PHI. Per @wojespn, PHI is sending Morris, Korkmaz & three 2nd rounders to IND for Hield – 10:30 AM
Jake Fischer @JakeLFischer
Elsewhere atop the East, I’ve heard both New York and Philadelphia have had conversations with Detroit about acquiring *both* of Bojan Bogdanovic and Alec Burks. At this point, all signs point to the Knicks still being involved with the Pistons, after Sixers found no progress. – 9:43 AM

Trade deadline notes on the Knicks, Sixers, Alec Burks, Bruce Brown, PJ Washington, Kings, Shake Milton, Royce O’Neale and more here:…9:33 AM
Stefan Bondy @SBondyNYDN
From yesterday’s story, fresh intel that Philadelphia and Minnesota had registered interest in Knicks target Alec Burks.
TWolves probably out after acquiring monte Morris. But Philly a threat.… via @nypostsports – 8:56 AM
Alan Hahn @alanhahn
Today’s @BartAndHahn will have NBA Trade Deadline thoughts and reactions. May not be a sexy trade out there for #Knicks, but Burks (40% 3PT over last 3+ seasons) would be a seamless fit. Bruce Brown also a fit, tho would you give up a 1st? Watch the buyout market too! 👀 – 8:23 AM
Ian Begley @IanBegley
Spoke with @emacSNY about Alec Burks, another Atlantic Division team could compete with Knicks for the veteran guard, Bruce Brown, the Jazz, OG Anunoby and more on Honda SportsNite: AM

James Edwards III @JLEdwardsIII
Ivey on Burks: “Coach says he wakes up read to shoot. He brings it every single night. All of our guys brought it tonight.” – 12:43 AM
Mike Curtis @MikeACurtis2
Final: #Pistons 133, #Kings 120.
Detroit made two trades today, had just 10 players available and beat Sacramento without Cade Cunningham, Bojan Bogdanovic and Isaiah Stewart.
Jaden Ivey exploded for a career-high 37 points (19 in the fourth quarter). Alec Burks added 25. – 12:24 AM
Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa
FINAL: Pistons 133, Kings 120. Detroit, without Cade Cunningham, Isaiah Stewart, Bojan Bogdanovic and Monte Morris, flew to Sacramento and handled business.

Huerter just got a tech and ejected … that might do it.
Pistons up by nine with Burks going to the line. 1:40 left.
Looking like a mature-ass victory by Detroit and the kids. Wow. – 12:16 AM

Jaden Ivey.
He just drilled a bomb after Burks hit a wide-open 3.
Detroit has weathered the Kings storm so far. Lead by five with 5:53 left.
Sacramento has missed a lot of shots. 5/15 in the fourth.
Can’t imagine that holds. – 12:04 AM
Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa
Wow. That’s how you close a half. Pistons outscored Sacramento 17-5 after the 3:36 mark, turning a five-point deficit into a 70-63 halftime lead. Burks, Muscala and Hayes all hit a 3-pointer in the final 55 seconds – 11:14 PM

Sasser: 11 pts, 3 asts – 11:14 PM
Omari Sanfoka II @omarisankofa
Sasser already being this good from 3 as a rookie is … man. He takes and makes more difficult 3’s than anyone else on the roster, not named Bogey or Burks – 10:50 PM

“The Knicks have been an active team. They wanted to improve their bench scoring at the deadline. I don’t think that’s changed with the injuries they’ve had.”
