    Wizards will send second-round pick to Utah for Burke, who had fallen out of Jazz's future plans. Great reset button on Burke's young career

    I hope he does well in Washington. He was truly a professional, never heard a peep from him despite multiple trade rumors and getting benched by Snyder in favor of starting Exum, Neto, and Mack.

    He's a good kid, and a decent player. Hope it clicks for him.

    I'd have to say Minnesota won that trade.

    Yeah it's too bad. Could've done so much more never making the trade. Essentially gave 2 first rounders for a future second

    I'll be rooting for him. was nothing short of a true professional, and gave us good minutes over Jamaal Tinsley.

    Good luck Burke, he could have easily snapped with all the PG's playing in front of him last year but he always kept his cool. I saw this one coming from miles away though.

    You win some, you lose some. With Hill on board and Exum returning, Trey was going to be the odd man out. Maybe consider this a salary dump move to, with $3.38m off the books this year, it's a bit more wiggle room to play with. Probably addition by subtraction as well al a Kancer. Just a couple of thoughts. Either way, don't have an issue with this as it gives more time for Exum.

    I saw this as well and was hoping the majority here would wish him well, I know he fell out of favor and didn't seem to fit with the style Quin wants but I always thought he could be a good back PG and I hope he finds his role as Wall's back up and plays well (except against the Jazz), I also never fully understood some of the dislike or hate he received and hope he is cheered on his return.

    A second round pick in 2021??? That's honestly all we could get for him? WOW.

    I figured we'd move him for a second rounder. Well, it beats waiving him for absolutely nothing and paying him money. Another roster spot free.

    I wouldn't look too much into it, we mostly just had too many guards and not enough roster spots. I bet the Jazz would've waived his contract if they couldn't find a team to take him. Also, the space could be to restructure Favors and/or Hill.
