He’s eligible to be traded in mid-December, and if he can repeat even a fraction of Wednesday’s performance with regularity, Burks could become an attractive February deadline target for a playoff team in need of some bench punch. Because Burks is on the minimum, salary matching isn’t necessary. Teams could just absorb the rest of his deal without sending back a player. If anyone becomes willing to part with even a second-rounder to get Burks, the Warriors — in asset-collection mode and eventually in need of a roster spot, for either Damion Lee or another younger option — would have to listen.

How is the adjustment process going? I know when you join a new team, you have to get used to a new team, new system, new coaches, new city and so on. What’s that transition been like? Al-Farouq Aminu: Like you said, it’s a lot of new things coming at you. But that’s why we’re professionals; we have to figure out the different ways that people play and the different schemes – all of the different ways that we’re going to attack with this team. Also, you’re adjusting in your home life. You’re getting settled in and moving all of your furniture and things like that. It’s a big adjustment, but it’s coming along smoothly.
Since arriving in Orlando, what’s been your first impression of the team and the city? Al-Farouq Aminu: Aw man, it’s been so great. It’s a big change from Portland because now I’m in a sunny state. I’m wearing shorts today! It’s kind of surreal to still be wearing shorts at this time of year. It’s been really nice, man. It’s a nice change of pace, for sure. There’s a really cool energy around this team. We have a lot of great guys. From top to bottom, everyone has a really great attitude, so that makes you enjoy coming in to work. It’s nice. All of the guys are great. They’ve exceeded my expectations, for sure.
