Trading Block: Alec Burks


Alec Burks is on the trading block. After being a starter on Utah for multiple years, Burks injuries and the Jazz’ acquisitions of Rodney Hood, Thabo Sefalosha, and Joe Ingles have left him struggling to find a role. While he averaged 13.3 points for the 31 games he was healthy for in 2015-16, Burks is now struggling to find his place with just 6.8 points per game on 36.2% shooting.

Burks is a great candidate to buy low right now and bet on him coming back to relatively full strength. Prime Burks would make a great 6th man on any team, and even a post-injury version of Burks should still be able to find his way as a primary pack-up wing. Here are the best trade options for Burks:
