Trey Burke NBA Draft Profile

Trey Burke NBA Draft Profile

Trey Burke, Sophomore, Point Guard, Michigan



Trey Burke had a phenomenal sophomore season, leading Michigan to the national championship game and earning a slew of national accolades along the way. Burke ended the year averaging 18.6 points, 6.7 assists and 1.6 steals per contest. As impressive as those numbers are, it does not even begin to tell the story of how important Burke was to the Wolverines and their success.

But Burke was pretty good back in 2011-2012 during his freshman campaign. He led Michigan with 14.8 points and 4.6 assists. Burke was a bit inconsistent as a freshman, both from the floor and in the turnover department. He really grew up throughout his freshman campaign and put it all together as a sophomore. Going back to school may not have done him too much good, although Burke still has room to grow and that is why the NBA will not let him last past the lottery.


Final Projection:

Burke is a bit undersized for the NBA, but he can certainly make up for it. His big wingspan makes him play a bit bigger than his 6-0 frame would indicate. With his explosiveness and quickness, Burke can get to the basket on the offensive end and successfully defend bigger and stronger opponents on the other end. Even shooting over defenders is not much of a problem and Burke has amazing shooting range. Any team that needs a scoring point guard should be very happy to build around Burke. It will probably cost them a top ten selection.
