Alec Burks‘ chances of emerging as a breakout star on this Jazz roster have worsened considerably over the last few years, as injuries have pushed him a bit lower on the depth chart. He played in just 31 games last season, after playing 27 the previous year, this time as a result of injuries to his left knee and ankle that ultimately required surgery. Burks still managed to post 13.3 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.0 assists per game last season, but might struggle to replicate even those numbers, with the acquisition of George Hill, the ascension of Rodney Hood and the return of Dante Exum. Burks has some solid potential as a playmaking combo guard, but he might struggle to make an impact in the crowded rotation for the Jazz. Consider him worthy of a late-round flier on Draft Day.
