    I would trade him for CJ straight up. We need CJ back.

    Can I get an amen?
    Gobert has a serious defensive gravity.

    disappointing if true. (stevenson, snyder, almond, miles, pavlovic, burks... we just needed one of those guys to pan out.)

    i'm hoping there's not much to the rumour. it's still early in the season and he's really only one injury away from seeing 20mins a night.
    no doubt he'd be frustrated not to be seeing the floor after the signs he showed in pre-season.
    if he has the maturity to deal with it and is doing all the right things at practice i don't see why we'd be looking to ship him, or if why he would want to leave.

    to put Burks in prospective, the only guy that would've been of help in that draft taken after him wouldve been Shumpert (maybe Kawhi or Parsons, Faried wouldve been benched)...

    Speaking of not showing us very much how about Foye, Williams, and Tinsley. If we are being honest here they haven't deserved the mins they've recieved. They aren't horrible or anything, but they've been very inconsistent overall.

    Watch the Lakers game again and see how Burks plays. He gets right up on Kobe, and tries to play within the offense. This doesn't look like a player
    who isn't worth a shot.

    David Locke has mentioned regularly that he questions his work ethic. But I don't care if he's only giving 80% during training. I would be pissed too, if I was being ignored like him.

    CJ was aloud to suck for several years and now Burks comes in, plays better and more consistent than CJ, and gets benched or even traded in his second year? This franchise is going downhill fast if they don't get rid of Corbin.

    Burks' shot is as flat as it was when he was drafted. His ball handling is the same inconsistent entity. This is the stuff you work on in practice, you don't need actual game time for that. After 1 full year and 1 full training camp all improvement in his game is he is more often under control and that's it.

    Foye shot 9-32 on the road trip and got scorched on defense in every game - that's horrible.

    His saving grace is he took over The Laker game for about 5 minutes - probably the one game most of the people on this board watched. Otherwise his game has ranged from average to horrible 8 out of the 11 games this season.

    Tinsley has to play because he's the only other PG on the team - I never bought into Burks playing the point any way.

    I gave my extended thoughts on Williams in another thread - the guy's all talent and zero intensity

    The bottom line is this: if a franchise gives up on a first round lottery pick 77 games into his NBA career - it is the management's fault - plain and simple

    And to think that we're now looking at a potential scenario where Burks is traded while Raja Bell is still a member of The Utah Jazz. That's worse than failure on management's part - that's a ****ing meltdown

    Burks is better than Foye for sure.
    From what I saw, Foye must be a 10-12 min guy at best, while Burks is resting.
    You know, guys like Burks can win you something in that ball game.
