Given that Alec Burks’ playing time over the past three years has been short, it’s fitting that his end of season interview was brief as well. As one would expect with Burks, nearly all the questions revolved around his injury woes. He mentioned that he has a ways to go to get back to his old self and that he needs to work to get his explosiveness back.
When asked about how he’s coped with it, I liked when he mentioned that he’s a “soldier” as well as later when he confidently said he felt he could come back 100 percent next year. Hopefully both of those declarations prove to be true as the Jazz could use an offensive boost from Burks off the bench at times.
However, given how little of an impact he’s had for the Jazz over the past few seasons and how much salary he’s currently eating up (two more years worth around $11 million per year), there’s a very good chance that Jazz brass looks for a way to move him this summer.
