Former Michigan star Trey Burke has a new NBA home
The free agency period is a time of turmoil in the NBA. Several players have fat, new contracts, others are searching for the right suitor and some are headed to new destinations.
Former Michigan guard Trey Burke falls under the last category. The Utah Jazz traded Burke to the Washington Wizards in exchange for a second-round draft pick, according to The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
