Trey Burke

Utah have been searching very, very proactively for a point guard, a "proper" one of some calibre, since Deron Williams left. Figured that search would culminate with someone like Jose Calderon or Andre Miller. Trumped that and then some.

   2017 NBA Manifesto

Trey Burke
PG, 6’1, 191lbs, 24 years old, 4 years of experience

His career is falling backwards. Brought in to be a bench sparkplug, a player who would score enough to make his big defensive weaknesses ignorable, Burke was suitably ineffective in this role that Jennings was brought in ahead of him at midseason. [Jennings then played far worse than he, but there we go.] Burke shot less threes and less free throws than ever, instead shooting quite a lot of pull-up twos. And while he is quite good at pull-up twos, a player who gives up so much defensively and who is not much threat as a playmaker for others cannot just do that alone. There is still time for Burke to establish himself in the NBA as a scoring type - the improvements in his jump shot are there to be seen - yet in being so exploitable defensively and in so often forcing the issue, the best shooting Burke is doing is shooting himself in the foot. [I am proud of this cheesy line.]

Player Plan: Expiring rookie scale contract. Did not earn a new contract here and must rely on grace from someone else offering a chance at redemption.
