Trey Burke Traded from the Minnesota Timberwolves to Utah Jazz

The Utah Jazz did some wheeling and dealing in order to land point guard Trey Burke from the Minnesota Timberwolves. Per the Salt Lake Tribune: “The Jazz will emerge with the top playmaker in the draft, Michigan’s Trey Burke, after trading their two first round picks for the rights to the consensus national player of the year. To complete the deal, the Jazz selected UCLA’s Shabazz Muhammad with the 14th pick, and Gorgui Dieng from Louisville with the 21st. Later in the first round the Jazz traded the No. 46 pick and cash to Denver for the rights to 7-foot-1 French center Rudy Gobert, who was picked 27th. In the buildup to the draft, general manager Dennis Lindsey said he would be aggressive, and did not fall short of the vow. Burke averaged 16.7 points and 5.7 assists in two years at Michigan, where he led the Wolverines to the NCAA championship game in April. The Jazz worked out 67 prospects in preparation for the draft, although Burke was not one of them.”

    I know this article is about Trey but what about the T-Wolves? Anyone think Shabazz will make an impact playing with Rubio and Love?

  • spit hot fiyah

    he has a chance, that is a position that is open for the wolves. roy is gone and who knows what budinger will bring, he could start.

    I like him on the wing and he will be able to feed well off of Rubio. Wolves are really coming together now and their bench isn’t all that bad.
    Potential starting 5:
    PG – Rubio
    SG – Shabazz
    SF- Kirilenko
    PF – Love
    C – Pekovic
