With the Western Conference stacked full of former NBA MVPs, the Mavs and their fans have been more than okay with a full-on rebuild, especially when it has helped land Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis. While 33…

There was plenty of praise for Trey Burke after his first practice with the Sixers on Tuesday.
Ben Simmons said Burke was "amazing today" while Bruce Brown went with "really good today". Burke and Raul Neto are competing for the backup point guard role, and it would appear that Burke may have jumped out in front of Neto who did some good things too, according to Brown. On a team with an irregular point guard in Simmons, the player that wins the role may be used as more than a traditional backup and provide some end-of-roster fantasy value. Keep an eye on this battle.

A natural point guard with a scorer's mentality, Trey Burke's goal is to back up Ben Simmons at the point while also earning some minutes with the first unit.
The backup point guard spot figures to come down to Burke and fellow veteran Raul Neto, with the younger Shake Milton also in the mix. Burke makes good decisions with the ball, as evidenced by his 3.24 assist-to-turnover ratio in 58 games with the Knicks and Mavericks last season. He can be a bit streaky with his jumper though, which is why his role could change from night to night depending how well he is shooting.

The Sixers have officially announced the signing of Trey Burke on Tuesday.
Burke may find himself a decent role with the Sixers as they have one of the best starting units in the league, but their bench isn't too deep. He's the veteran of the reserve guards and will be battling Raul Neto for the backup point guard job. Unless something happens to Ben Simmons, Burke won't carry much fantasy value next season.

Trey Burke signed a one-year deal with the Sixers on Thursday.
Burke adds a body to the bench for the Sixers. He won't provide a lot from a fantasy angle, but this is a good real life depth move behind Ben Simmons.

The Lakers have interest in Trey Burke, per Marc Berman of the New York Post.
Burke started the season in New York's guard rotation but quickly fell by the wayside after being traded to Dallas. He's not looking at a huge market this summer, but the Lakers need bodies and there's some value in having a guy who can get hot every now and then signed to a minimum contract. We'll see if they end up signing Burke with their ample cap space.

Trey Burke scored six points on 2-of-7 shooting (including two threes) with one rebound, three assists and one steal in 13 minutes off the bench in Wednesday's finale.
Burke got a lot of support under Scott Perry in NY but eventually that ran out and eventually he was traded to the Mavs, where he didn't really make a move. With just 0.7 combined steals and blocks per game in 19.4 mpg this season, there just isn't a lot of meat to the bone in standard formats.

Trey Burke went 8-of-16 from the field and 6-for-6 from the line to finish Sunday's 129-127 overtime win over the Grizzlies with a team-high 24 points.
Burke made the most of the absence of Luka Doncic (thigh contusion) and delivered some efficient scoring along with two boards, five dimes, two 3s and one steal in 29 minutes. He's been just inside the top-150 over the last week and has been a serviceable play in most formats during that span.

Trey Burke started in place of Jalen Brunson (rest) on Friday night but disappointed with 13 points, three assists and no other stats in 27 minutes.
At least Burke went a respectable 4-of-7 from the field. Much more was expected of him considering how much he chucked as a member of the Knicks, but he looked the part of true PG in this one. Burke will be a viable stream or DFS play if Brunson sits again, but that's about it.

Trey Burke exploded for 25 points and eight assists on 10-for-18 shooting from the floor and 4-for-8 from beyond the arc in Sunday's win against the Thunder.
Burke logged 31 minutes off the bench in this one and took full advantage of it. In games that Luka Doncic misses, Burke has some upside, but he can't be counted on otherwise.

Trey Burke is not listed on the injury report for Saturday’s game vs. the Grizzlies.
Burke missed Wednesday’s game to an illness but it looks like he’s ready to go for Saturday. When Luka Doncic is healthy and playing, it’s difficult to count on Burke game-to-game despite his random good games.

Trey Burke has been ruled out of Wednesday's game against the Pacers with an illness.
He was questionable prior to this development, so there's little surprise here. With Burke sitting out, Devin Harris should get all the backup PG minutes he can handle.

Trey Burke (illness) is now questionable to face the Pacers on Wednesday.
Burke has had a few big games for the Mavs, though he's really a pure roll of the dice unless Luka Doncic is out. If Burke is unable to play tonight it will lead to more work for Jalen Brunson and Devin Harris, though as long as Doncic is in the lineup, the Mavs' depth guards are off limits in fantasy.

Trey Burke scored 20 points off the bench in Saturday's loss to the Jazz, hitting 8-of-15 shots (including a three) with seven rebounds and three assists in 23 minutes.
Whether you want to look at the revenge angle or the fact that Luka Doncic (ankle) did not play, we simply need to see Burke be productive again to get an add recommendation in 12-14 team formats. If things go well, he suddenly gets workload on a team not playing for a whole lot.

Luka Doncic (sore right ankle) will not play on Friday vs. the Nuggets.
Doncic’s minor injuries have piled up enough to force him to sit this one. Doncic is day-to-day and hopefully he’ll be fine after a day or two or rest. Jalen Brunson and Trey Burke will assume the point guard duties for as long as Doncic is out.
