SG Alec Burks to the Jazz 12th overall: Grade B+

Published on June 24, 2011 by Scott Shirley   ·   No Comments

With their 2nd pick in the first 12 picks in the draft; the Jazz take Alec Burks.  The Jazz really need to get athletic at the shooting guard Burks fits that need. The Jazz need to get better at shooting guard; Raja Bell, C.J. Miles, and Kyle Weaver aren’t the answer.When you think of Colorado you don’t certainly think about good basketball players, but Burks is a top guard in this year’s draft and was one of the best players in the Big 12. As for current NBA players that compare to Burks think last year’s second round pick Evan Turner.

Strengths- He is a pure scorer who is really aggressive, excels at mid range game, good size. Weaknesses- needs to shoot the three better, needs to add muscle, work on ball handling
