Trey Burke on the way out?
The New York Knicks have done a great job of helping point guard Trey Burke resurrect his NBA career over the past year.
Now it looks like the Knicks are looking to cash in on Burke.
Marc Berman of the NY Post is reporting that New York is looking to trade Burke prior to the February 7th deadline, in hopes of getting a second round pick in return.
Burke doesn’t believe he’s hit his prime yet. The question is, do other teams agree?
“I have a lot of basketball left in me,’’ Burke told The Post. “I take care of my body. Being 26, honesty, I’m not even in my prime yet. I don’t feel I have a lot of mileage on my body, only played two years of college. That’s one of the frustrating things, too.’’
With Enes Kanter, Tim Hardaway Jr. and Courtney Lee all on the trade block, you can now add Burke to the list.
Burke is a good player that can help any team off the bench by providing a spark as someone who can put up over 20 points on any given night.
When it comes to the Knicks, it’s now obvious that Emmanuel Mudiay is their number one point guard and they no longer need Burke, who’s contract runs out this summer.
This is certainly a sign that the Knicks will not be re-signing Burke this summer.
