Burks has the size and length to be a legitimate wing player in the NBA. His fluid offense and improved shooting has also shown that he can be a legitimate scorer in the NBA.
Burks put a so-so basketball program in Colorado on his back trying to will them into the NCAA tournament. He has shown great leadership skills and can score from the outside or around the bucket.
At Colorado, Burks relied heavily on isolation plays — clearly showing that he has the ability to create his own shot. He has the ball-handling skills and explosiveness of a guard. He has the size and presence of a forward.
Burks is truly a pure-scorer. One that is ready for the NBA. His skill-set is wide, dynamic and most importantly — NBA ready. Burks is the best scorer from the wing position in this year's draft — Just watch the kid play!
Burks is predicted to go in the late-lottery, but will be a steal for any team even if he goes higher.
