Jazz Acquire Trey Burke

9:29pm: The deal is now official, with Burke heading to Utah for Shabazz Muhammad (No. 14) and Gorgui Dieng (No. 21).

7:34pm: The Jazz will acquire ninth overall pick Trey Burke from the Timberwolves, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports (via Twitter). Jeff Goodman of CBSSports.com reports (via Twitter) that the T-Wolves will acquire the 14th and 21st picks in the swap.

There was speculation earlier today that Utah would trade up in the draft to land one of the top point guards on the board. It was reported that the team may have to include Alec Burks along with the two first-rounders to get a deal done, but with Burke slipping to No. 9, the Wolves were apparently ahppy to simply pick up an extra pick.

One thought on “Jazz Acquire Trey Burke

    Wolves fans watch how other general managers work the draft and it becomes painfully obvious that owner Glen Taylor is really in charge of the draft. He does not value draft choices and he has now hired three general managers (McHale, Kahn, Saunders) who are way in over their heads. I cannot believe the consensus best point guard in this draft – Trey Burke – had so little value and the Wolves gave him away for almost nothing, moving down to take two marginal prospects and selling the 26th pick so that Taylor can put another million bucks into his pocket.
