For most of the predraft process, we all though Burke would go in the top five. Instead, he barely sneaks into the top 10. Cue up the jokes for “yet another point guard going to Minnesota.”

Throughout the NCAA Tournament, Burke showed what he could do under the pressure. He has all the makings of a top-flight point guard at the next level. He can shoot it and dish it, but really excels in the pick-n-roll.

Was this the right move?
