Jazz Guards Trey Burke and Alec Burks Seek Assistance From John Stockton

Trey Burke and Alec Burks work with John Stockton.

There’s not too many people you’ll rather go to for pointers as a young point guard than John Stockton. Trey Burke and Alec Burks apparently got the memo.

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.”

It’s great to see legends give back to their organizations.
