Good.

The kid can shoot.

The kid can shoot....No doubt about that....My tendency would be to say that I doubt he'll see action other than in the last few minutes of blowouts; however, Corbin is gone, and who knows what Snyder will be able to bring out of this kid?
I have never before been this anxious for a Jazz season to get started. I can't bring myself to believe it will be a championship season or anything like that, but I'm stomping at the bit to see what the next step in Lindsey's grand experiment has accomplished.

Glad he is coming back. Jazz are probably coming to terms with Burke not being the answer.

A practice player and a back-up if there is an injury. Does nothing to make the team better. Why is Burke not the answer? Trey is a very good player. He held his own last year, it was Hayward who let the team down. Had Hayward shown up in the 4th quarter, the Jazz would have won 10 more games.

I like Trey Burke too and would like to keep him with the Jazz. But truth be told, he is undersized and had a difficult time guarding and shooting over the bigger points in the league last season.

Trey Burke will continue to improve. But if Dante Exum blossoms into the player I believe he can become, it won't surprise me to see Burke get traded or relegated to the second string.

All things being equal, which would you rather have a 6'6" point guard or a 6 foot point guard?

I know people like to bring up the fact that Chris Paul is a six footer, but Burke hasn't displayed that level of ability yet. In any event, the Jazz can easily keep them both for another year or two before having to make any decisions. Of course, that decision could easily change if the right trade comes along.

@rvalens2: I agree that based on ability and talent, Exum should be the better player in 2 years. However, Burke is better than Exum right now and was very efficient when he returned from his season-opening injury. I would like to see both Exum and Burke on the floor together as it creates match-up problems for opposing teams on defense. With Hood on the wing, it opens up the floor to drive. I think in 3 years, those 3 will be very good. If Hayward, actually shows up and plays, I would trade Burke in 2 years and allow Exum to run the show. with Hood and Hayward on the wings. I am not sold on Alex on the wing unless he is coming off the bench.

Hopefully Snyder will utilize he and the others, rather than have them sit on the bench like Corbin did. It was agonizing watching last years players not getting the PT.

im not sold on trey burke...he cant finish on contact...seems to rely on jumpers often...he can drive yes...but he cant finish...i know he has room to improve...but...i cant see him make that huge jump...i guess he has to prove me wrong...i think most of the young guys should improve this year...they need to work...harder...
