02:15 PM ET 06.29 | When the Utah Jazz traded for Trey Burke on draft night, the expectation is that he'd be starting immediately, however, that apparently won't be the case for the National Player of the Year award winner. According to reports, the Jazz are expected to "take it slow" with the Bob Cousy award winner, suggesting that while he won't start games, the Michigan product might not even play in some games.

Brillant move, draft a guy that you might not even use. Brillant I say.

I think this is just posturing to have Mo re-sign with the Jazz. Mo has been hurt a LOT, and is in the downside of his career.
Burke WILL play and WILL start some games when Mo isn't available.

Dumb for the Jazz to be even saying this. It's okay for the Jazz to say that MO will start but they shouldn't say anything negative about their new PG. At least they should say they would give him the opportunity to fight for the starting job...

This is BS. I mean the alternative is Jamaal friggin' Tinsley. Case closed.

They're trying to save him from getting embarrassed by Derrick Rose.
