Burke spent time in Chicago at Brooklyn Net point guard Deron Williams' Skills Academy. Wolverine teammate Tim Hardaway Jr. is also in Chicago, showing his stuff at the Kevin Durant Skills' Academy -- a clinic for wing guards/forwards.
And after one portion of the event, scouting website ProBasketballDraft.com made a proclamation about both Burke and Hardaway.
“Michigan SG Tim Hardaway looked good today," the site wrote via Twitter. "Expect a big year. Should form Big10s best backcourt w/ Trey Burke. Both should be 1st rounders.”
Hardaway was one of 19 elite-level college forwards participating in Durant's camp, which is one of the Nike Elite Youth Basketball skills academies.
Notable campers were Ohio State's LaQuinton Ross, Syracuse' C.J. Fair, Mississippi State's Rodney Hood and Georgetown's Otto Porter.
Hardaway's official measurements at the camp were 6-foot-6, 193 pounds. His wingspan was 6-foot-7.
Durant's camp began Sunday and runs through Tuesday.
