2013 NBA Draft: Minnesota Timberwolves Select Trey Burke With No. 9 Pick Trey Burke
With the No. 9 pick of the 2013 NBA Draft, the Minnesota Timberwolves select Trey Burke.
Position: Point Guard
About the Prospect: Trey Burke flirted with the idea of being one-and-done over a year ago, but ultimately the 6-foot point guard made the decision to return for his sophomore season. That second year in Ann Arbor turned into a run to the National Championship and the National Player of the Year award in college basketball. Burke’s size is presenting an issue for a few programs, but there have been plenty of undersized point guards who have excelled at the NBA level. Burke can score and push the ball in transition, so there’s no doubt that he should be a formidable weapon in the back court.
About His Impact on Team:
Just look at what Burke was able to do last season at Michigan as he led the Wolverines to the National Championship game. Burke has great leadership skills for a guard and he certainly made the right decision to return to school to help his draft stock boost up.
If his career at Michigan is any indication of what to expect–Burke could turn out to be one of the best picks from this year’s draft.
