The Jazz have traded Trey Burke to the Wizards for a second-round pick in 2021.
The former lottery-pick is coming off an awful season in which he completely fell out of the rotation. With the addition of George Hill and the return of Date Exum, Burke was in line for a minimal role. The trade not only revitalizes his fantasy value, but it allows him to hit the reset button on his career. He needs to make up for his defensive shortcomings by focusing on making plays for his teammates and improving his shot selection. He’s set to be John Wall’s primary backup, but is not yet on the fantasy radar.
