2019 Fantasy Outlook
Burke's star-crossed career heads to Philadelphia to kick off the 2019-20 campaign. The 2013 ninth overall pick split his time between the Mavericks and Knicks last season, averaging a combined 10.9 points (on 43.1 percent shooting, including 35.2 percent from three-point range), 2.7 assists and 1.7 rebounds across 19.4 minutes over 58 games. The exact extent of his role in the Sixers backcourt rotation is to be determined over training camp and preseason, but what's much more certain is Burke's ability to offer starter-quality production when given sufficient minutes. The latest example of such came last season, when Burke posted 30 double-digit scoring efforts, including five performances of 20 points or better, despite logging just eight starts. Ben Simmons will naturally receive the lion's share of playing time at point guard as long as he's healthy, but Burke offers considerably more scoring upside than fellow vet and former Jazz teammate Raul Neto, and he's exponentially more proven than second-year guard Shake Milton.

The 6-0 guard averaged 14.8 points, 4.6 assists and 3.5 rebounds. He scored a career-high 30 points in the Big Ten Tournament against Minnesota and topped 20 points in four other games. Michigan was upset in the first round of the NCAA Tournament by Ohio despite 16 points and five assists from Burke. He was named as the Big Ten Rookie of the Year. As a sophomore, Burke was named Big Ten Player of the Year after averaging 18.6 points and 6.7 assists. He hit 38.4 percent of his 3-pointers and helped the Wolverines advanced to the national championship game in the NCAA Tournament. He has 23 points and 10 assists in a win over Kansas, which was his fourth double-double of the season. In the overtime win, Burke scored eight points in the last 75 seconds of regulation. After two seasons under coach Jon Beilein, Burke chose to enter the 2013 draft.

ANALYSIS
In order to make room for the acquisitions of Glenn Robinson and Alec Burks, the 76ers chose to waive Burke, who appeared in 25 games this season for Philadelphia and averaged 5.9 points, 2.1 assists and 1.4 rebounds in 13.2 minutes. It's possible he lands with another team.

Past Season Summaries
2018

Trey Burke appeared in 58 games with the New York Knicks and Dallas Mavericks during the 2018-19 season. It was the most NBA games he played since the 2015-16 campaign with the Utah Jazz. The 6-foot guard averaged 10.9 points and 2.7 assists while shooting 43.1 percent from the field. In 33 games with the Knicks, Burke averaged 11.8 points and 20.9 minutes per game. After being traded to the Mavericks, he averaged 9.7 points in 17.4 minutes. While he did take on a slightly smaller role, he was much more efficient. His shooting percentage jumped from 41.3 to 46.3 after being traded. Burke had a terrific four-game stretch in November. He averaged 25.8 points and 4.3 assists while shooting 58.8 percent and 45 percent on threes. The University of Michigan product recorded two 20-point performances and a season-high 31 points against the Orlando Magic on Nov. 18.

2017

Burke began the 2017-18 season in the G-League, and his dominant play there (26.6 points, 5.4 assists) coupled with some injuries earned him a call from the Knicks in mid-January. He ended up playing in 36 games (nine starts) for New York, growing into one of the club's best players down the stretch. Burke made his Knicks debut in Brooklyn on Jan. 15; just 10 days later, he piled up back-to-back 18-point performances against the Nuggets and Suns. He followed that with back-to-back 26-point efforts against Orlando and Boston on Feb. 22 and 24. All told, Burke scored in double figures in 17 of New York's final 19 games. His best game of the season (and career) was a massive 42-point, 12-assist gem against the Hornets on Mar. 26. The 42 points were a new single-game high for the former University of Michigan star. Burke's season averages -- 12.8 points with 1.1 threes, 4.7 assists and 2.0 rebounds -- were incredibly impressive, considering he did it all in just 21.8 minutes per game. He's proven that he can provide instant offense off the bench whenever he's given the opportunity.

2016

In Burke's one and only season with the Wizards, he appeared in 57 games off the bench. The reserve point guard averaged 5.0 points and 1.8 assists over 12.3 minutes of run. Burke reached double-digits in points on five occasions. He scored a season-high 27 points twice. Burke first reached the mark on Dec. 30 against the Nets. He shot 10-of-12 from the floor, including a perfect 5-for-5 from three-point land. Burke matched that scoring mark in his last game of the regular season on April 12 versus Miami. He shot 10-of-13 from the floor in that game, including 5-of-7 from downtown. Burke appeared in three playoff games for the Wizards. He played 10 minutes in a win over the Celtics in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals.

2015

What would end up being Burke's final season in Utah was an up-and-down campaign. It started well, though. Burke scored in double figures in 20 of Utah's first 27 games. Included in that span was a 24-point performance in a win over Memphis on November 7. Burke has always been an excellent volume scorer and this season was no different. He drained a career-best six three-pointers in that previous mentioned win over the Grizzlies and went through a stretch from early December to mid-January in which he nailed at least one shot from downtown in all but one of 22 games. Burke kept up the strong scoring pace until early February at which point, he saw his minutes drop. For the season, Burke averaged 10.6 points, 1.8 rebounds and 2.3 assists in just 21.3 minutes per night.

2014

Burke played in 76 games for Utah during the 2014-15 season. He averaged 12.8 points per game -- just as he had as a rookie the year before -- alongside 4.3 assists and 2.7 rebounds. Burke scored a season-high 28 points on 10-of-16 shooting with six assists and six boards on Jan. 3 at Minnesota. Burke recorded a season-high 11 assists on both Nov. 12 and Dec. 5. A willing and capable 3-point shooter, Burke drained a career-high-tying five shots from downtown twice, Feb. 8 and Mar. 21 -- scoring 23 and 20 points, respectively. He also collected a career-high four steals on three separate occasions, part of an improvement in that category from 0.6 per game to 0.9. The second-year guard scored in double-digits in 52 games. Burke had five or more assists in 27 contests. He recorded three double-doubles, which included a 18-point, 10-assist effort in a close loss to the Bulls on Nov. 14.

2013

A star with the University of Michigan, Burke was taken ninth overall by the Jazz in the 2013 NBA Draft after leading his team to the NCAA Championship final. It didn't take him long to step into a major role with Utah. Burke averaged 12.8 points, 5.7 assists and 3.0 rebounds over 32.3 minutes per contest. He appeared in 70 games for Utah with 68 starts. Burke particularly excelled at the free-throw line, making 90.3 percent of his attempts, including 10-for-10 in his highest-scoring game of the season, a 32-point effort in the season finale Apr. 16 against Minnesota. Burke also hit the 30-point mark earlier in the campaign, adding seven rebounds and eight assists in a Dec. 18 win over Orlando. His season high for assists was 15 dimes alongside 24 points against the Warriors on Apr. 6,. Burke even added a 10-rebound game Dec. 7 against Sacramento. All told, he recorded eight double-doubles. A dangerous shooter from long range, Burke made five of his eight three-point attempts Mar. 10 as part of a 23-point night against Atlanta. For his efforts, Burke was named an NBA All-Rookie first-teamer.

Past Fantasy Outlooks

2014
2013
Burke struggled to make much of an impact with the Wizards in 2016-17, which resulted in a lack of suitors when he joined the free agent market in the summer of 2017. After failing to make an opening night roster, Burke joined the G-League and ended up dominating his competition there, averaging 26.6 points and 5.4 assists. As a result, the Knicks, who were dealing with some depth issues in the backcourt, opted to give him a look and signed him for the rest of the season. Burke wound up being a nice surprise in 36 games (nine starts) for New York, posting averages of 12.8 points, 4.7 assists, 2.0 rebounds and 1.1 three-pointers across 21.8 minutes. He also shot 50.3 percent from the field and 36.2 percent from deep, both being more than respectable numbers despite the shortened campaign. After an impressive finish to the season, including a late March game against the Hornets where Burke put up a 42-point, 12-assist double-double, he now comes into the year with a safe spot on the roster. While the Knicks will likely prioritize developing fellow backcourt mate Frank Ntilikina, Burke should still see a fairly significant role and he could even earn a spot in the top unit with a strong camp. Look for him to push for minutes in the mid-20's, which will give him some utility as a late-round option in deeper leagues. He'll also be someone to look out for in DFS contests if he's expected to see an elevated role when considering the massive aforementioned outburst that Burke posted late last season.
Burke has seemingly backed his way into Utah's starting point guard job for the upcoming season with Dante Exum (ACL surgery) missing the entire 2015-16 campaign. The former Michigan standout actually began last year as coach Quin Snyder's starter, but over time, Exum won the job as Burke was moved to a sixth-man role off the bench. The allure of Burke's potential has worn off over his two seasons in the league as it seems evident now that he's an inefficient player who elects to shoot much too often and has problems defending on the other side of the court. Nevertheless, he muscled his way to an average of 12.8 points, 2.7 rebounds, 4.3 assists, 0.9 steals, 0.2 blocks, and 1.6 three pointers after a total of 76 outings where he saw 30 minutes per game. All those numbers are expected to be on the rise this season since the only other viable options to play point guard are Alec Burks, who openly prefers playing as a two guard, and Raul Neto, who hasn't even stepped foot on an NBA court yet. Potential investors in Burke will have to deal with his poor shooting from the floor, a career average of 37 percent, and hope that his inexplicable drop in free-throw percentage from 90 in his rookie year to 75 last season will hopefully come around as he makes the all-important transition into his third NBA season with an abundance of responsibility on his shoulders as the Jazz look to legitimately contend in the Western Conference.
Trey Burke is entering his second season in the NBA. He missed the first twelve games of his rookie season with a broken index finger on his shooting hand, but the 21-year-old was able to play in the remaining 70 games while averaging 12.8 points, 3.0 rebounds, 5.7 assists, 0.6 steals, and 1.6 three-pointers in 32 minutes per game. He proved to be one of the more productive rookies last season despite shooting a lowly 38 percent from the field. Burke was the undisputed starting point guard shortly after returning from injury, coming off the bench for only two games before usurping John Lucas, but he'll have more vaunted competition for the starting job nipping at his heels this season. Despite already having Burke on the roster, the Jazz drafted Dante Exum from Australia with the fifth-overall draft pick in the 2014 NBA Draft this summer. New coach Quin Snyder could shock the world and opt to start Exum over Burke at point guard, but Burke seems to have the advantage on the starting job with 68 NBA starts under his belt and two years of collegiate experience, including leading his team to the 2013 NCAA championship game. Burke spent the offseason working on his long-range shooting, his ability to finish at the rim, and his defensive awareness.
The Jazz acquired Burke – the 9th overall pick in the 2013 draft – from the Timberwolves with a draft-night trade and immediately installed the Michigan product as their starting point guard. Burke scored 18.6 points and dished out 6.7 assists for the Wolverines last year and led Michigan to the national title game against Louisville – winning most of the major college basketball postseason awards in the process. He did much of his damage from long range, attempting 5.1 shots from three-point range and hitting at a 38 percent clip. It appears they'll be taking a "sink or swim" approach to Burke's development – journeyman John Lucas is the only other established point guard on their roster currently. But he'll also have the benefit of just about the best tutor one can imagine for a rookie guard – Jazz legend and Hall-of-Famer John Stockton.
