Many expected that Burke would be off the board long before Minnesota picked at No. 9, but he slipped and Utah took advantage. They flipped a couple later picks for Burke and got their point guard of the future. And a year after Mo Williams and Jamaal Tinsley were the team's primary point guards, Burke may be the point guard of the present too.
Randy Foye and Gordon Hayward are established shooters and Alec Burks, Enes Kanter, and Derrick Favors are young players that will benefit from improved PG play. Even if Burke doesn't put up monster stats, the addition of a reliable point guard, who can run the team down the stretch, will really help a team that almost made the playoffs last year.
Clearly Tyrone Corbin can coach 'em up and Burke is a natural leader and playmaker that should be able to take them to the next level right away. His leadership and maturity combined with a team that did surprisingly well last season is a recipe for mutual success.
