Default Re: The sure to be epic 2013 Jazz off-season!

The youth movement is among the boldest reorganizations the Jazz franchise has ever made. Hayward is the oldest among the four players at 23, and when 20-year-old Burke is added to the mix, the projected starting lineup has an average age barely above the legal drinking limit.

The one question mark may be Burks. If the Jazz were looking for a candidate to bring off the bench — and shore up their depth — the former University of Colorado star could be one. How*ever, General Manager Dennis Lindsey said "he had as good a summer as anybody we’ve had" and it remains unclear whether Burks or offseason acquisition Brandon Rush, who is still recovering from a torn ACL, will start.

Last season, Burks went from the end of the bench at the start of the year, to a key rotation player by the end, serving at both guard spots despite not knowing when or where his minutes would come.

"Alec was really professional," Lindsey said. "Did not rock the boat one time and I think we learned some things from injuries — that he could handle the ball and we could put him in creative situations."

Burke would seem to be the biggest question mark to me. We already know the other guys can play.
