5 things the Utah Jazz hope to accomplish with Trey Burke & Co. at summer league (plus extras)
ORLANDO, Fla. — From the sounds of it, summer league might imitate the regular season for the Utah Jazz.
The Jazz's youth will get plenty of opportunities to play.
With fall camp three months away, that will certainly be the case for the next week while the Jazz participate in the Orlando Pro Summer League.
Utah's five-game schedule begins Sunday morning at the Amway Center, where rookie point guard Trey Burke will make his pro debut for the Jazz.
"He's going to play as much as he can stand," Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin said. "This is really about developing our young guys."
Several players who could be in the Jazz's regular rotation — namely Alec Burks, Jeremy Evans and rookie Rudy Gobert — will play with Burke. Point guard Raul Neto also might be allowed to play.
Here are five things the Jazz are looking to get out of the summer league experience:
