Burks to Utah at #11.
I'm hoping he might go #8 to Detroit. They badly need some kind of a dynamic scorer and he would be perfect for them as long as he can adjust to NBA 3s.
I couldn't care less about whether he goes to a team I cheer for or against. It's all about him getting into a good situation with other young talent, a well-run organization, and good veteran leaders. My only rooting interest here is for Alec to have a great NBA career.
Chad Ford also has him going to Bucks @10
He is pretty consistant in the 8-12 range. Milwaukee would be a good situation for him.
as long as he goes in the 8-12 range i'm happy. if he slides into the deep teens...the "what might have been?" thoughts might make a bittersweet comeback for me.
I think the workouts will play a role here. Hopefully he impresses
Apparently, Alec separated his shoulder during the workout with the Bucks thus past week, and couldn't fully workout for the Bobcats because of it. Sounds like he'll be fine, but sucks that it happened. http://www.cbssports.com/mcc/blogs/entry/22748484/29818320
I think if Burks had to miss a workout with any team, he's lucky it was the Bobcats. Pretty sure Cory's dad (the GM) knows all about Alec's game and missing this workout won't hurt him at all.
Burks' stock seems to be slipping. Apparently the SG out of Providence did much better than Alec 1 v 1
where did you hear this?
Rule #1: Don't read anything on Bleacher Report ever.
Rule #2: Don't read anything on Bleacher Report EVER.
Rule #3: Just don't even bother going to Bleacher Report.

I am currently attending college in the Greater Pittsburgh Area while majoring in English-Writing. I hope to become a sports columnist in the future.
Everyone on the respectable sites has Burks going around 10-15.
Idk. I had a dream a couple nights ago that Burks got drafted in the 20's... no joke. It's a sign:huh:
To the Nuggets???
I would say your dream is more trustworthy than Bleacher Report.
FWIW The DP posted an article on Burks today (Chris Dempsey). At the end they confirm the potential slide. I personally wouldn't rate the DP any higher than Bleacher, but just thought I would pass along.
I hope Burks doesn't slide lower than 12-15. Any lower than that and he would have been better off coming back next year.
Not really. I love Burks, but I don't see him being a top 20 pick next year with all the guys that are returning for another season.
Chad Ford is reporting that Burks has officially been invited to the Green Room for the Draft, so the NBA feels he'll be a lottery pick.
great news for AB and good news for CU hoops. every time "University of Colorado" is mentioned or they show a highlight is money on the recruiting trail for Tad.
Big day today for Burks. Once again, from Chad Ford:
SBNation's mock draft:
John Hollinger's statistical analysis has Burks as the 9th best player in the draft.
It sounds like the Bucks are pretty set on Burks
Chad Ford again:
I hope he doesn't get stuck in Suckramento. But that could also be a franchise that moves and he'd end up in a good spot in either Seattle or Vegas.
Agreed. Not because I'm anti-Sacramento (I love their fans and they're getting screwed by ****** owners), but because it's a bad situation for him. They don't need a SG, and it's a team full of headcases (Evans, Cousins, etc.) with a coach that doesn't have a lot of power.
On a purely selfish level, I'm hoping for Milwaukee. The "Fear The Deer" campaign two years ago was must see TV for any die-hard League Pass fans and if Burks goes there that might be enough to convince me to re-up my League Pass this year (for the first time in seven years, I'm probably going to not subscribe this year -- if there is a season). Bogut is one of my favorite players in the league. Plus, as big of a prick as Skiles is, he'll really make Burks a better player until the inevitable mutiny happens that causes him to lose his job.
