Jazz fans aren't the only ones who love Trey Burke.
According to odds courtesy of Bovada.LV, Burke, the No. 9 pick in last week's NBA Draft is a 4-to-1 preseason favorite to win Rookie of the Year honors.
Burke is the favorite over Victor Oladipo, who went No. 2 to Orlando, and CJ McCollum, the 10th pick by the Portland Trail Blazers. The Jazz acquired Burke in one of three draft-day trades, moving the 14 and 21 picks to Minnesota in exchange for the consensus national college player of the year.
Five days into free agency, Burke remains the only point guard on the Jazz roster.
