ORLANDO -- Trey Burke's shot wasn't there the whole week, but that basketball powers-that-be kept on trying to give him a chance at redemption to conclude the Utah Jazz's week at the Orlando Pro Summer League.
Make that two chances, and both of the rookie's last-minute shots fell short Friday morning in the Jazz' 73-70 loss to the Indiana Pacers in the third-place game.
Shooting stat line for the game: 4 of 12.
Shooting stat line for the week: 13 of 64.
Time to panic about the number nine pick in the draft? Time to hope that John Lucas III deal comes through? Time to rush that Raul Neto buyout of his European contract?
Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin said it was simply time to step back and put it all into perspective.
"People only see the games," Corbin said. "We've had Trey in three days of a two-a-day training cam, then one day and then right into the games. Trey's had to learn a new system and the demands we have on him."
Burke's shooting especially slowed during second half, and Corbin attributed that to "tired legs."
"We have a good feel of what he can do," Corbin said. "He can score and he's going to be a good player in this league."
Burke was blunt afterwards.
"I learned a lot," the Michigan product said. "I think my performance was poor because my shot wasn't there, but I thought I did some other things well. I knew I wasn't going to put up the numbers I did in Michigan."
It was those other things that have Burke excited as he heads to training programs in Santa Barbara (Calif.), Columbus (Ohio) and Salt Lake City.
"I love how we pushed the ball. I loved the transition game and I loved the pick-and-rolls. The high screens remind me of college," Burke said. "It's a good system I can fit into."
Friday was the NBA equivalent of moving day, and the Jazz roster exemplified that.
Alec Burks and Jeremy Evans left Thursday, both improving their veteran stock after four solid games. Many of the free agents were on their way to Las Vegas for that summer league.
The Jazz even loaned two players -- Rodney Green and Drew Gordon -- to the Houston Rockets so they could play the Oklahoma City Thunder for the coveted championship cap. What was a roster of 20 on Sunday had dwindled to 10 Friday, and those 10 practically platooned.
