PLAYERS: Trey Burke
TEAMS: Utah Jazz
Trey Burke was selected with the ninth overall pick in this summer’s draft but was traded that night from the Timberwolves to the Jazz after Minnesota felt they could get better value by trading down to the 14th slot. With eight players going ahead of him Burke wouldn’t appear to be the favorite to take home the Rookie of the Year award this season but for a variety of reasons that’s exactly what he is. And Burke doesn’t see any reason why the award shouldn’t ultimately be his. From Alex Kennedy of HoopsWorld: While winning is clearly the most important thing to Burke he also admits that he’d love to bring home Rookie of the Year honors. Burke believes he be a difference maker for the Jazz and take home to the award. “I definitely think I can potentially get that award” Burke said of Rookie of the Year. “Coming off the season I had last year I’m a confident player. My confidence is my strength. I definitely think there is a good chance that I could win it.”
