Although he went to college at the University of Michigan, Jazz rookie guard Trey Burke grew up in Ohio, which means he must have been a Cleveland Cavaliers fan, right? Not necessarily. When asked Thursday if he was a Cavs fan, Burke quickly shrugged if off, saying, “Obviously I wanted them to win some games being from Ohio, but I never really had a favorite NBA team or NFL team.’’ Deseret News

Is it really as bad as it seems? "Yes," Ford said via email. "Really, only Victor Oladipo and Michael Carter-Williams are proving to be valuable starters at the moment. A few others like Trey Burke, Mason Plumlee, Tim Hardaway Jr. and Steven Adams have been solid. Giannis Antetokounmpo looks like he might be a big star down the road. But all of those players except Oladipo weren't even in the conversation for the No. 1 pick." Cleveland Plain Dealer

NBA.com: There was so much speculation about where you might end up on Draft night. What went goes through your mind as a point guard when the Jazz, a franchise with a history of drafting both John Stockton and Deron Williams, decide you are the guy they want? Trey Burke: Absolutely, I was just talking about that. Minnesota, when they picked me I was kind of like, ‘I didn’t work out with them or even interview with them.’ It didn’t make sense at first. And then five minutes later I get traded to Utah, and I didn’t work out with them. But I got the opportunity to sit down with them in Chicago and the pre-Draft camp and just to know that Deron Williams and John Stockton, some really great point guards came from there, I knew I was going to be put in a great spot to make an impact o this franchise. I just want to have a chance to be an impact player and leave my mark on this franchise. And that’s all you can ask for in the end. NBA.com

Before the Utah Jazz left for their annual pre-Christmas road trip, their 21-year-old point guard admitted he has briefly entertained the idea of the ROY award -- it's in the back of his mind somewhere -- but it hasn't made its way to the front. "I mean, it's a goal that I think about at times but it's not something that I'm really stressing over," he said. "I'm just trying to play my game. (With) those type of goals you usually put pressure on yourself to go out there and perform at a level you may mess up. That's just putting extra, unnecessary pressure on yourself."

Three players—Hayward, Burke and Derrick Favors—have been using the iPad scouting the most, and each in a different manner. For Hayward, it has been about seeing the floor and how teams are playing him. For Burke, it is about executing a new offense. And for Favors, it is more about the fundamentals of his game.

Jody Genessy: Trey Burke said he almost has full mobility in right index finger. "I’m still trying to get it to cooperate with me." Mostly feels good. Twitter @DJJazzyJody

Trey Burke, the 9th pick in the 2013 NBA Draft, made his professional debut on Wednesday night. As Burke ran onto the court, Richard Jefferson held back the rest of the Jazz and let the rookie go out on the court alone while his teammates laughed. Burke scored 11 points in 12 minutes on 8 shots, but the Jazz still lost to drop their record to 1-12. So the bad news is that Trey Burke got embarrassed and the Jazz still stink. The good news is that Burke looked like a capable young player and the Jazz currently have the best chance at winning the top pick in a loaded draft! The Big Lead
