Sixers to Guarantee Trey Burke’s Contract for Rest of Season
Trey Burke scored 12 points in just 16 minutes on Monday, with two assists and two 3-pointers against the Thunder.
Its the kind of instant offense off-the-bench that Burke has provided the Sixers in recent weeks that allowed him to get his minimum-salary contract, fully guaranteed for the rest of the year per Keith Pompey of the Inquire.
He has essentially taken over the Sixers backup point guard minutes from Raul Neto, appearing in each of the 76ers’ last nine games, averaging 7.7 points off-the-bench over those appearances.
On the season, Burke is averaging 7.3 points, hitting 46.9 percent of this 3-point shots in 14.9 minutes per game
