Trey Burke is confident he will win the Philadelphia 76ers’ backup point guard job behind Ben Simmons over Raul Neto.
“I think throughout stretches of the game we [Burke and Simmons] can play together and I can be out there with the starting lineup at times,” Burke said. “That is the competitor in Trey Burke. That is who I am and what I bring to Philadelphia, if you ask me.”
Burke split time last season between the New York Knicks and Dallas Mavericks.
Burke also believes he could play some shooting guard beside Simmons.
“I have some experience playing off the ball,” he said. “The short time I was in Dallas, playing with Luka (Doncic), I felt we played really well together in our limited time together, even in New York I played off the ball.”
Burke is on a one-year, $1.8 million deal that is partially guaranteed.
