Trey Burke Drafted 9th by Minnesota, Traded to Utah For Two Picks

trey burke stuns kansas in sweet 16Trey Burke, the talented Michigan point guard, was taken 9th by Minnesota, at which point everyone scratched their head. Then, Burke was traded to Utah for the 14th and 21st picks.

Burke should start immediately in Utah.

At 10, Portland selected CJ McCollum. So the Blazers, in need of a big, but with no good ones available, took a very good combo guard. Thing is, Portland has the rookie of the year in point guard Damian Lillard, and Wes Matthews at shooting guard.

With the 11th pick, the 76ers took Michael Carter Williams, the point guard from Syracuse. Given that the 76ers just gave up Jrue Holiday, MCW should be the starter.
