One topic that has recently been brought up is what should the Jazz do with the lottery pick that they’ll have in the 2015 NBA Draft? As previously stated, they already have so much young talent, so should they try to trade it for a veteran contributor? Or should they use the pick and add another piece to their core? “If I had to make the call, I would probably go best available,” Burke said regarding Utah’s draft pick. “You always want good talent to be a part of your team. [I’d try to take] a guy who loves to compete and at the same time is very talented. That’s probably what I would do.”
While the major statistical categories are about the same, it’s also worth noting that Burke has limited his turnovers and fouls and that, at times, he seems more in control on the court. He’s the first person to admit that he’s still learning, but he’s optimistic about the progress he’s making since, again, he’s still so young. “I’m much more comfortable,” Burke told Basketball Insiders. “I’m starting to understand the very small things that will help me get to where I want to be in my career. There are some things you don’t understand until you actually experience a year or two in the NBA. One of the main things was the schedule. Going from 30 games to 82 games is a big adjustment for really anyone who’s coming from college to the NBA. That’s something that I’ve definitely learned to cope with.”
Alex Kennedy: I asked @Trey Burke if he thinks Utah makes playoffs next year. With no hesitation, he said: “West is brutal but we definitely think we can.”
Guard Trey Burke and center Enes Kanter could be on the move; guard Dante Exum and center Rudy Gobert make them expendable.
Point guard Trey Burke was also quite surprised when word of mouth got back to him in New York on Thursday, where he, Gobert and rookie Dante Exum are attending All-Star Weekend festivities. “It’s a little surprising as a teammate,” Burke said. “Sometimes guys hold things in, they bottle things (up) and … just got to let what they really feel go. I’m not saying I agree with it. At the same time, I’m not one of those guys to get super angry about it.”
Trey Burke is just the second Jazzman to compete in the Skills Challenge on All-Star Saturday Night (Deron Williams also won in 2008 and competed in 2010). In addition to Trey Burke vs. Brandon Knight, the other Skills Challenge matchups include Toronto’s Kyle Lowry facing Chicago’s Jimmy Butler, Atlanta’s Jeff Teague with Philadelphia’s Michael Carter-Williams, and Phoenix’s Isaiah Thomas against Washington’s John Wall.
By now, it isn’t breaking news that Dante Exum is the new starting floor leader. It also isn’t much of a secret that Burke was initially disappointed with coming off the bench. But he’s played admirably in his new role. He says that he’s more comfortable with the change and he’s adjusting to being more of a scorer.

“I just thought we lost our identity,” Snyder said of his halftime pep talk after his team’s sluggish/terrible/awful/ugly/downright dreadful first-half performance. ” … We came out and didn’t get stops early and offensively we were just stuck in mud. We showed them a couple of clips and said let’s get back to doing the things we do.”
The other was almost three years ago, Trey Burke texted me that he was leaving after his freshman year. Cleaned out his dorm room or apartment, then went back home, and both Beilein and his dad convinced him to come back for his sophomore year. It was the best decision that he made, because he ended up being a lottery pick and having a player of the year season as a sophomore. But he’s the one that told me he was leaving, and I wrote it “according to sources,” and then he changed his mind, and so Michigan fans were mad, and rightfully so. “Hey, Goodman was wrong, he said Trey Burke was leaving after his freshman year and he didn’t.” I get it.
The Utah Jazz announced via press release Friday they have exercised the third-year options on guard Trey Burke and center Rudy Gobert. Both Burke and Gobert were selected in the first round of the 2013 NBA Draft and the options will keep them under contract until at least the 2015-16 season.
Trey Burke joins the company of Justin Verlander and Kate Upton, though not in a flattering way. The former Michigan point guard, now with the Utah Jazz, was the subject of yet another nude photo leak on Twitter, leading to his name becoming a trending topic on the social media platform. Reports say Burke reached out to Jazz management and his teammates about the photos. “We are disappointed in what we’ve learned so far, but we’re going to move forward,” said Jazz general manager Dennis Lindsey, according to Jody Genessy, a Jazz beat writer for Deseret News.

Binion said O’Neal and Burke later called him to apologize and the trio posted apologies on Twitter. Binion’s condition, called ectodermal dysplasia, can affect a person’s appearance and cause health problems. In Binion’s case, he does not sweat, and the condition has affected his hair and teeth. If he gets overheated and can’t cool himself down, he said, he could faint or suffer heat stroke.
Jahmel Binion’s “selfie” on social media was mocked by NBA star Shaquille O’Neal, former Michigan star and Utah Jazz rookie Trey Burke and rapper Waka Flocka. Now, the Warren man — who has a rare genetic disorder that affects his facial features — is suing them. Binion, was mocked by the trio and his story went national earlier this year. On Wednesday, he filed a lawsuit in Macomb County Circuit Court seeking more than $25,000 in damages.
