Trey Burke - PG - Michigan
 
He is definitely going to be able to play in the NBA, but what is his upside long term?

Definitely an NBA player, I hope for his sake he lands on a quality team later in the draft. 6 feet tall with a 6'5" wingspan, shown to be a quality deep ball shooter, can shoot well off the dribble, and is a capable passer.

DraftExpress currently has him Top 10, I would agree with that. His stock has to be rising with the play of Michigan in the tournament, where do you see him going?

It certainly seems like Burke and Carter-Williams might be playing this next game for the #2 PG spot in this draft behind Marcus Smart. I think 7 - 14 is the range on both guys.

Burke might be the Mike Conley/Russell Westbrook of this year's draft. I could see him going top 3-5 especially if Orlando winds up picking that high. Actually, I could see all three PGs going in the top 7-10 picks. Damn. All these guys were in the 20-40 range at the start of the year.

I love his game and think he's gonna be a pretty solid NBA guard. He tends to over dribble sometimes (although he's far better at avoiding this compared to his freshman season) and every now and again he will fall in love with the step back 3. He's got a real nice package of skills and you can't coach his speed. I wouldn't be surprised at all if he has a better career than any other PG in this draft.

That's what makes me worry about him. Seems like he's got a little Brandon Jennings in him... the good and the bad.

Burke isn't in the same class as these two guys from an athletic standpoint though. That was a big part of the reason why their stock went up so much leading up to the draft. He is more crafty and quick rather than incredibly explosive when compared to the very elite. Regardless, he has got the offensive skillset you desire your point guard to have.

I would take Burke over Jennings any day.

This kid can play. I watched him tear up in the B10. He can score, dish, and has the capability of being a very solid defender. If there's one thing I definitely know about him is that he's clutch and is the type of player you want handling the ball with the game on the line.

Michael Carter Williams and Trey Burke are topping my big board for the Pelicans inaugural draft.

Trey is a straight up baller that may end up being similar (injury wise) to Kyrie Irving.

Strength dude, strength.

Currently projected to go 7th to SAC by DraftExpress, I hope for his sake that's not accurate.

Re: Trey Burke - PG - Michigan
 
He's currently projected 2nd by the latest ESPN Insider Mock Draft.

BlakeJesus 05-22-2013 09:19 AM

Re: Trey Burke - PG - Michigan
 
Does Ben McLemore go 1st in that scenario?
