Wizards Exploring Market For Trey Burke

The Wizards are exploring the market for Trey Burke, according to Michael Scotto of Basketball Insiders (Twitter link). Washington is looking for a second-round pick in return for the point guard.

The franchise acquired Burke from the Jazz during the offseason in exchange for a 2021 second-round pick. Prior to being dealt, the 2013 No. 9 overall pick spent three seasons in Utah.

Burke has seen his role with the Wizards fluctuate this season. In 51 games with the team, he’s averaged 5.0 points in 12.6 minutes per game. He’ll be a restricted free agent at the end of the season.

    why are wiz so badley to get rid of burke,hes the only other experienced ball handler and having a great season. the hell wrong with ernie already effen up the chemistry with bogdanovich

    • JT19

      Chemistry? They gave up a guy averaging less than 10 minutes a game (while clearing cap room for Porter to be resigned) and a guy who hadn’t played in like the last 20 games. Not that Bogdanovich gets them closer to Cleveland, but did you really think the roster as previously constructed was going to make them a threat in the East? And if they didn’t make a move, I’d bet that you’d be complaining about them not doing so.
