Burke, a first-round draft pick in 2013, announced on Instagram that he is D.C.-bound.
I would like to thank the Utah Jazz, my teammates, and the fans that supported me thru my time with the organization ! Through the highs and the adversities I faced it helped me grow as a player and more importantly a person/role model ! With that said I'm excited and looking forward to begin my time with the @washwizards and joining my new extended family! Wassup DC
The Wizards will send the Jazz their 2021 second-round draft pick in exchange for Burke, according to multiple reports.
The trade cannot be finalized until July 7.
The former Michigan man is projected to come off the bench and back up All-Star point guard John Wall.
Burke averaged 10.6 PPG in 64 regular-season games last season for the Jazz.
