Player Outlook

Things haven't gone as planned for former Collegiate Player of the Year Trey Burke, who actually took a step back last season from what was already a disappointing rookie season. Burke found himself benched midway through the season, as his shooting percentages and per-game production slipped across the board. Burke shot just 36.8 percent from the field and 31.8 percent from 3-point range, a long way from the 38.4 percent mark he posted in college from distance. At 22, there is still plenty of time for Burke to find his way, but with Dante Exum developing as the starting point guard, his future in Utah seems to be as one of a few sixth man candidates. He still averaged 13.2 points per game off the bench, but saw his assists fall to 3.5 per game as he took on a more pronounced scoring role. Burke could develop into a Fantasy contributor, but it will be hard to stand out at the guard position unless he takes a big step forward. Only consider him as a reserve option late on Draft Day.

Latest News
  • Jazz guard Trey Burke scored 15 points (6-12 FG, 3-5 3Pt) and handed out five assists over 27 minutes during Tuesday's preseason win over the Lakers.Though Dante Exum's season-ending ACL tear is believed to put Burke in position to hang on to the starting job, his role was called into some question after Brazilian import Raul Neto shined both defensively and as a distributor in the preseason opener. However, Burke probably performed better of the two players on Tuesday night, and offers more appeal from a fantasy perspective due to his ability to put up points. Burke hasn't been particularly efficient over his two seasons in the NBA with a 37.4 shooting mark from the field, but if he can show even modest growth in that regard in 2015-16, he may be able to hold off Neto for minutes.

  • The Jazz are open to a draft-day deal involving point guard Trey Burke, according to a report from the Deseret News. Burke, who averaged 12.8 points per game in both of his seasons with Utah since coming out of Michigan, fell out of the team's starting rotation this year.

  • Jazz guard Trey Burke said Thursday he was looking forward to the offseason to improve his overall game, the team announced. "I think I've still got a lot of room for improvement," Burke said. "I look forward to getting better." During the offseason, Burke said he will work on changing his body to improve his quickness, reports the Salt Lake Tribune. "I have to be quicker," Burke said. Despite missing the playoffs, Burke said the team proved it can compete with the top teams in the league. "We showed we can beat the top teams in this league, so I think we're excited about the future," he said.

  • Jazz guard Trey Burke has been cleared to play in Wednesday's game at Houston, reports the team's radio play-by-play announcer. Burke has missed the last three games with a sore back. After sitting out the last two games to rest, forward Derrick Favors will also play. Meanwhile, forward Gordon Hayward has been ruled out of the game. It will be the third-straight game Hayward has missed because of a sore Achilles. The Jazz are 11 1/2-point underdogs.

  • A regular season finale Wednesday night at Houston has two injured Jazz players receiving quite different designations. Point guard Trey Burke (sore back) is probable while off-guard Gordon Hayward (Achilles) is doubtful. Both had previously been listed as questionable.
