Utah Jazz President Randy Rigby revealed in a radio interview Wednesday that both rookie point guards Trey Burke and Alec Burks spent time working out recently with one of the best point guards the NBA has ever seen, all-time NBA assist leader and Hall of Fame Jazz point guard John Stockton. Jazz big men Enes Kanter and Derrick Favors previously worked out with Hall of Fame Jazz forward Karl Malone.
According to The Big Show with Spence Checketts & Gordon Monson:
“Alec [Burks] and Trey [Burke] are both actually working with John [Stockton]. They were able to get up this week and work with John, which again shows you the commitment we have from the Karl Malone’s, the John Stockton’s, the Jerry Sloan’s of helping us build this new team, this young team.
We’ve been really happy with the commitment of John to go and really support us in helping these young players not only on the floor, teaching them some tricks of the trade, but also more the philosophy and what it means, the opportunity to be playing for the Utah Jazz and playing in the NBA, and some things that they can do mentally as well as physically to become a better basketball player.”
