Mo Williams will re-sign as a free agent with the Utah Jazz only if he remains the starting point guard next season, a source told Yahoo! Sports on Friday.
As for Burke, he told reporters Thursday, "My goal is to come in and start right away. I look forward to coming in and helping the team win."
Williams, a 10-year NBA veteran, averaged 12.9 points and 6.2 assists during his injury-plagued 2012-13 season in which he played 46 games.
The Jazz were adamant in stating their need for a point guard in this year's draft class. They dealt their two first-round picks (Nos. 14 and 21) to the Minnesota Timberwolves in order to get Burke to Salt Lake City.
Burke averaged 18.6 points and 6.7 rebounds as a sophomore last season while leading Michigan to the NCAA championship game.
