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.

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. Detroit Free Press

It didn’t seem to matter to USA Basketball, though, as Burke’s representatives said he was invited to join the USA Select team. The group of young players will practice against the U.S. national team during its Las Vegas training camp next week. Detroit Free Press

The younger Burke’s rookie salary is about $2.4 million, but his monthly budget for spending money is about $5,000. He admits that having access to so much money is exciting, but it also requires discipline. “I never really had a lot of money growing up, so I knew I was going to need the right team around me to make sure I was managing my money right, not just splurging and blowing it on things that aren’t necessary,” Trey said.

Thus far, Trey said he is pleased with the direction in which the team and his dad are pointing him. Looking ahead, Burke hopes to begin using his endorsement earnings as a main source of income to pay his living expenses and save all of his player salary for his post-basketball life — similar to former all-star Shaquille O’Neal, who lived off his endorsement income throughout his playing days and saved virtually every penny of the nearly $300 million he made in salary.
