In 2012-13, Jazz guard Alec Burks averaged 7.0 points per contest. He finally got over the hump and doubled that output in 2013-14. He'll be looking to build on that heading into 2014-15. Burks finally broke out of the cage and earned more playing time. He logged an additional 10 minutes of game action and as a result, he took four more shots per game (10.7) than he did the previous season. He appeared in 78 games (12 starts) last season with Utah, averaging 14.0 points, 2.7 assists and 3.3 rebounds in 28.1 minutes per game. Unless the Jazz go with a backcourt of multiple point guards (Trey Burke and Dante Exum), Burks is destined to be the full-time starter this season. He doesn’t give you much outside of scoring, so consider him a solid pick in the later rounds come Draft Day.
