If you’re looking for your early Rookie of the Year favorite, Trey Burke is the guy. First, we know he can play after watching him lead Michigan to the national championship game last year. Second, he’s going to get a ton of minutes in Utah (where they want him to learn on the job) and he’s going to have the ball in his hands. That same equation worked pretty well for Damian Lillard last year.
NBC’s own Kay Adams — I’m sure you know her best from PBT Extra — was at the rookie photo shoot day Tuesday and spoke with Burke about the draft, Utah and hanging out with the other rookies.
