STUPID!!!!! Is he trade bait. If not, how does he fit in? Never a fan of Saunders and this does nothing to change my mind. Can he play alongside Rubio? Just don't get it.

Burke has to be traded, I hear Utah. We need SG/SF shooters not another assist man with court vision, we have Rubio. Burke is a good player he just doesn't fit this team. With Flip andnot Kahn in charge, it just seems like this is a pick for another team or to try to trade. There are several SG/SF shooters left for pick 14.

@mockingyou if that is correct that is a good job by Flip since Caldwell-Pope was off the board at 8.

I bet he becomes a star. All the players the Twolves draft for other teams become great!!!! The players they take just dont pan out. I would keep the kid.

Kind of surprised they didn't go with McCollum. Burke is trade bait, but hopefully they can get something worthwhile in exchange. They obviously weren't thrilled with the remaining options on the board at SG. Still could work out.

Burke will end up a hall of famer. Why do we always out think ourselves. We get the one guy who seems to be a semi head case. Great.
