Now, seeing this gets me really excited. I don’t remember having the Jazz draft a rookie that was an odds-on-favorite for ROY. However, I have to remind myself. These are just odds and Burke has never even played in an NBA game. That won’t stop me from being excited though.

The story line for “Trey Burke, Rookie of the Year” could get underway this Sunday at 11 a.m. when the Jazz take on the Heat in the Orlando Summer League. It won’t be the same competition he will see once he hits the floor this season, but it will give Jazz fans a glimpse of what this guy can do.
