RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017-18

Subscribe now to see our 2017-18 outlook.

2015-16

Burks saw his 2014-15 season cut short to just 27 games after undergoing season-ending surgery on his shoulder in December to correct an agitation that caused him discomfort dating all the way back to his playing days at the University of Colorado. The guard apparently struggled to raise his left arm above his shoulder at multiple times over the last five years, and his corrective surgery could mean full range of motion for the first time in his NBA career. That's a scary thought for opposing teams since he managed to produce 13.9 points, 4.2 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 0.6 steals, 0.2 blocks, and 1.0 three on an average of 33 minutes per game in his shortened season. Burks is the projected starting shooting guard this year, and the absence of Dante Exum (ACL surgery) this season will also allow Burks to spend some minutes at point guard, although he's openly stated in the past that he feels far more comfortable playing the role of a two guard. The only impediment standing in the way of Burks being cut loose on the court this season, besides the shoulder injury, is the emergence of Rodney Hood who could challenge Burks for the role of starter. Last year was the first time Burks was the designated starter, and his previous three years in the league were spent coming off the bench to provide a scoring presence. Burks could conceivably give way to Hood over time and revert back to a sixth-man role, but for now, he's projected to start and to have standard-league relevancy regardless of whether or not he's coach Quin Snyder's first option at shooting guard.

2014-15

Alec Burks will enter the 2014-15 season as one of Utah's main offensive weapons. In easily the most productive season of his three-year career, the 23-year-old averaged 14.0 points, 3.3 rebounds, 2.7 assists, 0.9 steals, 0.2 blocks, and 0.6 three-pointers in 28 minutes per game last season. He started 12 of 78 games last season but mostly provided the Jazz with a spark off the bench via his ability to provide instant offense. The Colorado product was able to reach the 30-point benchmark twice last season despite serving as Utah's sixth man. Moving into the 2014-15 season, Burks has the inside track of being the team's starting shooting guard under new head coach Quin Snyder. However, the Jazz acquired Dante Exum in the 2014 NBA Draft, who stands to be featured at both point guard and shooting guard this year. With the addition of Exum, Burks may have to concede playing time and offensive touches by the end of the season. However, it seems like the starting shooting guard job is Burks' to lose, especially when considering that he went on a streak of 26-straight games where he scored at least 10 points per game at the end of last season.

2013-14

Burks served as a combo guard last season, but now, like Hayward, will be slotted into his more natural position. At 6-6, 220, he's good-sized, but there are still questions about his scoring ability. He averaged 15.3 points per game per 36 minutes over his first two seasons but did so with a 43 field goal percentage and has only been average from downtown. He has potential, like his starting teammates, for a breakout year, but Hayward will get most of the first looks on offense.

2012-13

Burks is entering his second season in the league. In his rookie year, the Jazz began giving him significant playing time in the second half of the season. He is a young, athletic shooting guard who has a good all-around game. As his game grows, Burks could end up being a very good starter to pair with Gordon Hayward in the future. He can score, and scored 15 or more points in eight games last season.

2011-12

The 12th pick in the 2011 draft, Burks is an athletic shooting guard out of Colorado. He is very quick, with explosiveness that helps him finish around the rim. Although he has a decent mid-range game, he is not particularly skilled from the outside. He shot better than 50 percent from the field during his collegiate career, but was below 30 percent in three-point shooting.
