2013 NBA Draft Scouting Report: Trey Burke


Position: Point Guard

Size: 6-0, 190

School: Michigan, Sophomore


Strengths:
  • Quick handles
  • Change of direction/pace dribble
  • Leadership
  • Poise/maturity as floor general
  • Rarely forces the issue
  • Creating for his teammates
  • Distributor
  • Court vision
  • Effectiveness in pick and rolls
  • Capable outside shooter
  • Pull-up jump shot
  • Step-back jumper
  • Pesky on-the-ball defender




  • Weaknesses:
  • A bit undersized
  • Could be a defensive liability since NBA point guards will be able to back him down
  • Finishing in traffic


  • Summary: Burke's decision to come back for his sophomore season has paid off as he has become one of the top point guards in the country this year, leading one of the top teams in the nation. There aren't many knocks to his game except the fact that he is a bit undersized for a NBA point guard. When it's all said and done on draft night, he could end up being the first point guard taken.

    Player Comparison: Tony Parker. A crafty veteran floor leader, Parker has a tremendous understanding of when he needs to be a distributor and when to score. Burke is years beyond his experience in terms of his maturity and equally capable of scoring or spreading around the rock. Both guys can score off the bounce or shoot it from deep. I think Burke has a little Kemba Walker in his game as well and the size comparison is more accurate there as well.
