The 22-year-old forward/center (Enes Kanter) relayed a message to Utah media in the locker room after the Wednesday’s game that he hopes to be traded before the Feb. 19 deadline.

Point guard Trey Burke was also quite surprised when word of mouth got back to him in New York on Thursday, where he, (Rudy) Gobert and rookie Dante Exum are attending All-Star Weekend festivities.

“It’s a little surprising as a teammate,” Burke said. “Sometimes guys hold things in, they bottle things (up) and … just got to let what they really feel go. I’m not saying I agree with it. At the same time, I’m not one of those guys to get super angry about it.”
