Trey Burke Out 8-12 Weeks After Surgery
Bad news for Burke and the Jazz. Original reports were saying he'd be out for 4-6 weeks, now it's 8-12 weeks. I wonder how legit the Marquis Teague rumors are now.
I hope this doesn't hurt his long term career the Jonny Flynn's hip did to him. Not saying the injury is going end his career, but Jonny was never the same. Being just a finger he should be fine but it will set back his development.
What would the Bulls get in return if Teague was to be moved to Utah?
As a Bulls fan I'd be perfectly content with the Jazz' '14 2nd round pick for Teague. Teague is basura. Their 2nd should be really early since I expect them to suck hard. Super early 2nds have good value, more value than Teague currently has. The Bulls might not even pick up his 3rd year option. He's given more reasons to not pick it up with his lack of progression.
If I were the Jazz I'd look towards the Spurs. They have 3 reserve PGs behind TP who I think are all better than Teague in Patty Mills, Cory Joseph and Nando De Colo.
Roddy Buckets is still a free agent. I think he gets one more go as an NBA player in a Jazz uniform. Much lower risk than a trade, but still a little upside.
