I'm not sure eHarmony could have come up with a better match.
Trey Burke deserved immediate reps, and Utah needed a point guard. Burke was my No. 2 prospect in this year's class and the clear-cut top point guard option.
We've seen him lead a team to a national championship game, demonstrating admirable leadership qualities and a killer instinct.
He's a terrific high ball-screen point guard, finishing his sophomore year with one of the top assist-to-turnover ratios in the entire country. Burke also dropped 18.6 points a game, showing off a sweet stroke from anywhere out to 27 feet from the rim.
Burke has the potential to be a long-term starting point guard, and a pretty darn good one, in Utah. Forget spending in free agency; the Jazz found a captain without having to overbid.
Burke shouldn't worry about falling to No. 9 either. His first contract means nothing if it doesn't allow him to earn a fatter second one. And in Utah, he's with an organization that should allow him to blossom.
The Jazz were also able to acquire Frenchman Rudy Gobert, the 7'2" big man with an unprecedented 7'8.5" wingspan.
Utah came out winners on draft night for sure.
