For a couple days now I've been hearing Utah want to shop Burks, it'd be silly right? I can't help but be interested in it even if it is just say...his agent trying to get more minutes? I know we're guard heavy right now but with a lot of people wanting Henderson gone, what would you guys actually give to get him?

I bet they would want Ramon Sessions. They are probably using Burks to lure in a point guard now that Mo Williams is out.

Alec Burks won't really fit any of our problems + he is not a good defender at all, or shooter... But then again, he is talented, young and can score. But I don't see us going after him unless we run out of other trade ideas

Of course it isn't the best trade scenario but I just can't seem to ignore his talent and potential... I'd definitely give hendo and our Portland pick for him, not sure many would agree! I understand what you're saying though, however, he's only 21 and I'm sure he could learn new things on the defensive end of the game? I'm adamant to believe he'd make a nice role player for us at the very least.

Certainly didnt trade GW away to package the pick and hendo for Alec Burks....

Henderson is a solid starter in this league with potential to be a little bit more.
Burks is someone who hasn't even really found his role yet, but is loaded with Potential.
However, I don't think Henderson fits on our team. I wouldn't mind something like Burks + Pick for Henderson. But I doubt they would be interested in a Henderson type.

Burks is the exact same player as Henderson but worse in every aspect.
I know watching Utah games is painful, but the guy isn't anything special. We probably get the best SG out of that draft not named Harden.
