The Utah Jazz Select Alec Burks With The 12th Pick In The NBA Draft

New, comments

Alec Burks will head to the right side of the Rocky Mountains and play for the Utah Jazz. Apparently he has had a large chip on his shoulder for quite a while now.

Kawhi Leonard could have been the pick here but according to Chad Ford, the Jazz looked at Leonard but couldn't "get a feel for him." He also felt that the Jazz would have taken him over Kemba and Jimmer.

The knock on Burks is that he's not a good shooter but can create his own shot. Here's the breakdown from Draft Express.

Welcome to the Utah Jazz Alec.
