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
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.
@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.
@CJ MilesI 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
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.
Glad he is coming back. Jazz are probably coming to terms with Burke not being
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.
Good.The kid can shoot.
