So even as a rookie, Hood figures prominently into the Jazz’s plans at shooting guard and small forward. "We want him to take open shots," coach Quin Snyder said. "If he’s open, it’s a good shot. I don’t care how many he’s missed or made." Forward Steve Novak, one of the league’s top shooters himself and a new addition to the Jazz, agreed. "The thing I’ve talked to him about is just being on that border of confident/arrogant," Novak said. "I feel like as a shooter, you’ve got to be really confident shooting the ball. And he’s such a nice kid that I think it can almost be a flaw for him. He doesn’t want to be selfish ever, which is great, but with his skill set you want him to shoot the ball when he’s open. … Think in your head that this is going up and going in. Don’t apologize. Once he gets that confidence up, I think he’ll be a very, very good player in this league." Salt Lake Tribune

Trey Burke joins the company of Justin Verlander and Kate Upton, though not in a flattering way.

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.
