Default Trey Burke makes All-Rookie team

Utah Jazz guard Trey Burke has been named to the 2013-14 All-Rookie First Team, the NBA announced today. Burke becomes the ninth player in Jazz franchise history to be named to an NBA All-Rookie Team, and the sixth to be selected to the First Team.

Burke (6-1, 190, Michigan) averaged 12.8 points, a team-leading 5.7 assists and 3.0 rebounds in 70 games (68 starts) during his rookie campaign and was named Western Conference Rookie of the Month three times (December, January and April), becoming the first Jazz player to win multiple Rookie of the Month awards. Burke also registered 12 games with 20-plus points, and handed out 10 or more assists on seven occasions. During NBA All-Star Weekend in New Orleans, he was also selected to the 2014 BBVA Compass Rising Stars Challenge and won the 2014 Taco Bell Skills Challenge. Burke finished third in 2013-14 NBA Rookie of the Year balloting.

Default Re: Trey Burke makes All-Rookie team

The former Michigan star is the first Jazz rookie to earn first-team honors since point guard Deron Williams did it in 2006. Darrell Griffith (1980-81), Thurl Bailey (1983-84), Karl Malone (1985-86) and Andre Kirilenko (2001-02) were also first-team selections.

Philadelphia’s Michael Carter-Williams, Orlando’s Victor Oladipo, Brooklyn’s Mason Plumlee and New York’s Tim Hardaway Jr. were also voted onto this year’s All-Rookie First Team. Boston’s Kelly Olynyk, Milwaukee’s Giannis Antetokounmpo, Minnesota’s Gorgui Dieng, Charlotte’s Cody Zeller and Oklahoma City’s Steven Adams were voted onto the second team.

Burke received the third-highest point total among the league’s rookies, with 108 first-place votes and 14 second-place votes.

Burke was three times named the Western Conference’s Rookie of the Month, the first Jazz rookie to ever win the award multiple times. The team’s young floor leader had 12 games of 20 points or more and seven games with at least 10 assists.

Default Re: Trey Burke makes All-Rookie team

The All-Rookie first-team includes Rookie of the Year Michael Carter-Williams (250 points), Victor Oladipo (248), Burke (230), Brooklyn's Mason Plumlee (214) and New York's Tim Hardaway Jr. (204).

Burke was on 122 of 125 ballots from sportswriters and broadcasters who regularly cover the NBA. The 6-foot-1 playmaker received 108 first-team votes. (Click here to see how media members voted.)

Burke, the 2013 NCAA player of the year at Michigan, returned from a broken finger injury to help the Jazz play better after a disastrous 1-14 start.

The 21-year-old was named Western Conference rookie of the month three times and teamed up with Portland standout Damian Lillard to win the Skills Challenge during All-Star Weekend.

Burke is the sixth Jazz player to be named to the All-Rookie first team, joining Darrell Griffith (1980-81), Thurl Bailey (1983-84), Karl Malone (1985-86), Andrei Kirilenko (2001-02) and Deron Williams (2005-06). Blue Edwards (1989-90), Paul Millsap (2006-07) and Derrick Favors (2010-11) received second-team recognition as rookies.

The Jazz rookie finished third in Rookie of the Year voting.
