Jazz sign picks Trey Burke and Rudy Gobert
The Utah Jazz have signed draft picks Trey Burke and Rudy
Burke was the ninth overall pick in the draft, acquired by the
Jazz in a trade that sent Utah’s 14th and 21st overall picks to the
Minnesota Timberwolves. The 6-foot-1 point guard played two seasons
at Michigan, averaging 18.6 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.6 steals. He
had 255 assists to set the school’s single-season record.
Gobert, a 7-foot-1 center from France, was the 27th overall pick
in the draft, acquired in a trade with Denver that sent the 46th
overall pick and cash considerations to the Nuggets. He averaged
8.3 points, 5.2 rebounds and 1.8 blocks for Cholet Basket of the
French League last season.
Terms of both contracts were not released on Saturday.
