Rumor: Trey Burke Receives New Orleans Promise


According to Vincent Goodwill, New Orleans is “close” to giving a draft promise to Michigan point guard Trey Burke.

In a Q&A for the Detroit News’ Site, Goodwill said, “Word has it Burke is close to a promise from New Orleans at the sixth spot, but he could even go second to Orlando, considering that franchise isn’t in love with incumbent point guard Jameer Nelson. That’s nearly contingent upon if Orlando does keeps the pick or doesn’t make a trade with its current personnel. If neither of those things happen, he won’t fall further than eighth with the Pistons.”
