    Oct 16, 2013, 12:17 AM EST

    Jamaal Tinsley, Robert Sacre

    Jazz rookie Trey Burke was supposed to get the bulk of the minutes at the point guard position this season, but that was before he fractured a finger in a preseason game that required surgery and will sideline him for the next 4-12 weeks. (Burke says 4-6; his agent said 8-12) Utah is now pretty…

    Oct 15, 2013, 2:17 PM EST

    Trey Burke

    Trey Burke needs to have a conversation with his agent. Burke broke his finger over the weekend and on Monday the team announced he would need surgery, which was going to include pins in the finger. Burke’s agent told the Deseret News the rookie point guard would be out 8-12 weeks, meaning around a Christmas…

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards - NBA Global Games Rio 2013

    For a guy in Tom Thibodeau’s doghouse, Marquis Teague has a lot of suitors around the league. We passed along the report yesterday that the Jazz may have interest in Teague now that Trey Burkes is out for at least a couple months. But they are not alone, reports the Chicago Tribune — you can…

  7. With Trey Burke sidelined, are Jazz in market for point guard?

    Oct 14, 2013, 9:20 AM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Washington Wizards - NBA Global Games Rio 2013

    No sooner than I had picked Utah’s Trey Burke as my Rookie of the Year prediction, he goes and breaks a finger. Burke could be out 3-6 weeks, according to his father, but we don’t have anything official yet. Bottom line is he is missing the start of the season and could be out for…

    Jazz Scrimmage

    Last season: The Jazz finished 43-39, but they missed the playoffs for the second time in three seasons. Nobody really knew what direction Utah was headed, perhaps including Utah itself. The Jazz kept Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap, both on expiring contracts, past the trade deadline to make a playoff push. All they got was…

    Sep 26, 2013, 9:41 PM EST

    Trey Burke

    Trey Burke was selected with the ninth overall pick in this summer’s draft, but was traded that night from the Timberwolves to the Jazz after Minnesota felt they could get better value by trading down to the 14th slot. With eight players going ahead of him, Burke wouldn’t appear to be the favorite to take…

    Trey Burke

    There’s a formula for who often wins the Rookie of the year. They have to be a good player, certainly. More than that, he needs to be a player with the ball in his hands and on a team where he is going to be asked to take on a lot of responsibility. Damian Lillard…

    This summer saw Dwight Howard find a new home, the Clippers and Pacers add depth, and a few other teams making bold moves to get better (or, in some cases, worse intentionally).

    Raul Neto

    This isn’t a surprise — when the Utah Jazz traded with Atlanta to grab point guard Brazilian point guard Raul Neto with the No. 47 pick in the last draft we said he’s a guy that could be stashed overseas a year or two while he develops. Apparently that is what is going to happen,…
