So on the night after inking a deal for four more years in Utah, the Jazz come out with a huge win. His enthusiasm rang out to EnergySolutions Arena with an emphatic dunk late in the first quarter Saturday night, one that punctuated his sentiments from Saturday's shootaround. "I made it known," Burks said. "I told my agent and had him tell the Jazz I want to be here. I want to be part of the future. It's a bright future here. We have some great players. I just wanted to be a part of it." NBA.com

General manager Dennis Lindsey said the Jazz "really appreciate" how Burks has expressed his desire to stay in Utah. "The mindset of being part of something, being a part of the Jazz tradition is very important to us," Lindsey said Saturday morning. "The Millers are very proud of this organization's history, so when a talented young player tells you that, it lends you to a position that you want to strike a deal if possible." Burks' new bench boss, Quin Snyder, has been a vocal supporter since joining the Jazz in June. Both player and coach agree that Utah's work-in-progress, open, quick-pace system suits Burks' fluid and fast-playing style. Deseret News
