Alec Burks reportedly takes strides in offseason


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2013) Third year guard Alec Burks is one of many young players expected to take a step forward for the Jazz this season, after the team jettisoned a number of veterans. And, judging by the progress made in his offseason workout program, it could be quite a big step forward that Burks ends up taking.

"Alec was the biggest winner," Dr. Marcus Elliot, of the Peak Performance Project, told SaltCityHoops, a Jazz blog. "The staff really admired him for his work over the past couple years. He has apparently improved in a number of areas from hip stability, knee position and trunk strength, all of which affect quickness."

By both subjective and objective measures, Burks is in vastly improved shape entering the season; Burks improved his vertical leap by six inches from last summer, while reportedly adding 11 pounds to his frame.

Burks is expected to step into the starting lineup this season, after averaging 7.0 points per game in 64 appearances last season. The 22-year-old has yet to start a game since being selected with the 12th overall pick in 2011.
