I'd guess Alec would be producing at least as well as Leonard if he were playing under Pops and that team.
Man... what a buzzkill.
The Jazz raved about Burks and his toughness and how he didn't back down. He plays with a chip on his shoulder and can get to the line. Ty said that he needed to find more minutes for Burks last year. Ty and the players said good things about Burks and how he has improved over the summer. Burks plays well during the preseason, clearly out playing Foye but when the season starts Foye gets playing time over Burks with no explanation. Yes Foye has a couple of good games but many games where he has played poorly. Why not give Burks a real chance at earning more minutes. If the Jazz have already given up on this kid then they either made a HUGE mistake drafting him and they simply wasted a lottery pick.
There is no way the Jazz will get anything for this guy considering he has been glued to the bench.
I'd trade Alec Burks in a deal for Derrick Williams. I still believe in that guy's potential, but I might be the only one.
Burks = CJ without a three point shot. Jazz are wise-ing up this time. Package him with Al to get rid of Al before before teams clue into what Burks really is.
p.s. Foye 43% from 3. Burks 20% from 2, 0% from 3, 20% from ft. If you wonder why Foye plays over him it's because Foye is better.
May be we are gonna see the same tweet from Kanter's manager that Jazz is shopping him or he wanna traded. As we all know, Corbin is so succesful to melt youngster's hopes and careers down.
Che: I have got two things "freedom and death." If I can not have one, i wish to have the other; because noone is able to capture me alive
Minnesota needs Burks right now. Badly.
