This is why General Manager Dennis Lindsey told anyone who would listen that Burks’ return to the lineup — he missed most of the year after shoulder surgery — could end up being Utah’s biggest addition over the summer. And it’s worth noting that Lindsey made good on that statement, staying out of the free-agent market, clearly putting his faith in Burks’ ability to stay healthy.

“Man, I can’t wait to get back,” Burks told The Tribune last week. “I haven’t played in about nine months. It kind of feels like getting drafted all over again. Everyone’s excited and everyone’s working hard. We just want to get better on each side of the ball and keep growing together.

“Physically, Burks feels like he’s better for the experience. He’s worked long and hard over the summer to strengthen and condition his body. He was cleared for full basketball activity just over a week ago, and he feels like a better overall player.
