Wow...didn't expect this without losing a player. This guy is apparently a fine, all-around point guard who is very intense, a little larger than Chris Paul, excellent assist-to-turnover ratio, solid pick-and-role efficiency, and a proven winner. His shooting percentage as a jump shooter is excellent, too. Good job, Jazz!

Whew, that was close.

If that is the Jazz starting line-up next year, then they can expect to find themselves back in the end of the lottery at the end of the 2014 season...

@Just Wondering

who'd you rather have? to be honest...Schroeder and Plumlee would've been a good draft...i have little info on trey burke...because i never think Utah would move up to take him so i didn't bother to check on him....my best guess...the Jazz took all the other PGs...confirming their choice of Burke...that Trey Burke was better...i just hope that the Jazz fans wont ask for Lindsey's head if this didnt go well...and what i fear is...they will sign Big Al....

I watched this guy in the NCAA final game, and he got into early foul trouble. He sat much of the first half because of the fouls but then came out blazing in the second half. If Michigan had rebounded better, I think that Burke would have let them to the national championship. He just wouldn't say die, much like Gordon Hayward in his NCAA final and Alec Burks in his NIT final.

Just to add...Larkin and Plumlee...would've been good as well...oh well...this was a pleasant surprise for me...let's just hope...they wont sign Big Al...and sign someone else....

Was wondering why Minny would draft a point when they have a good one. Now we know. This trade will help both teams.. Good job Dennis...

Jazz philosophy is to "season" rookies. Check Deron Williams. We won't see Burke until 2014-2015.

Couldn't have been a better pick than if we were choosing #1..... This is even better than getting Deron Crybaby Williams!

i dont like the Rudy Gobert pick....the dude cant hold his own on the block...get pushed easy by small forwards...but...he is ridiculously long...over 9 feet standing reach...but...he wont do much...people would just score all over him...he would be a turnover prone big man because if he spins to the baseline...with a simple bump...he'll get pushed out and would be forced to throw an errant pass outside...i think he will be stashed in europe till he bulks up....we need to bring in Ante Tomic....hope that he considers joining us anyway...

@Rogers

i guess the Jazz "season" Stockton to retirement...you do know that John had a lot of lucrative offers from different teams...he just turns them down...to re-join with the Jazz...

Kakashi

any idea what we give for gobert?

@Kakashi
I suggest some patience evaluating Gobert. I just read about him, and you're right about him getting pushed around by NBA types presently but I don't see anyone scoring over him. He just needs to add some weight. He is really athletic...let's see how he develops.

Gobert coach will be Karl Malone.. He will be fine.

I like the move to get Burke. The only thing better would have been to draft Larkin and send him to Transylvania to have his body stretched. No doubt of his heart. If Burke has the heart, then he will be a winner for Utah. Gobert is a work in progress. That is why they hired Malone to work with the bigs. Wilt the Stilt could stand flatfooted and wrap both hands around the rim. I am thinkin' that Gobert may have a ridiculous ability at the rim. We shall see if Malone can turn him into a tiger. No turn the other cheek for Karl. Rudy is worth the investment. All in all, pretty good night for the Jazz. This sets the tone for free agency and some spear carriers to go with the "Core Four". I am hopin' that both Jefferson and Millsap go on their way. It has also been stated that the 2014 draft will be a bonanza with plenty of gold. The Jazz will have a rough year but it looks like it's a blue skies over the hill. Dennis Lindsey is no "Goober". He "done good" at least until July 1 and free agency.

@scalman

i agree with you...he really needs to add weight...but that's not all...he needs work offensively...but...then it hit me...Karl Malone has this...and would teach the kid a thing or two...cant teach that 9 ft standing reach...so yes...i would not count Rudy Gobert out just yet...but i do wish Ante Tomic would come...

now its filling the holes...i will be patient even if it takes us a decade...but i am sure we are heading the right direction...and 2-3 years from now...we'll be back....i still think a better coach would be nice

The Jazz need some sharp shooters now, dare I say Jimmer or Jaycee?
