Orlando, Fla. — Alec Burks' name continues to grow.

The second-year Jazz guard was named Friday to the Summer League first team, joining Detroit's Austin Daye, Orlando's Andrew Nicholson, and Indiana's Lance Stephenson and Miles Plumlee.

The 20-year-old Burks ranked second in average points (17.2) and 12th in minutes (26.8), adding 3.4 rebounds and shooting 45 percent from the field in five starts.

Burks guided Utah to a 3-2 record. He poured in a game-high 31 points on 10-14 shooting Tuesday, during the Jazz's 84-80 win against Philadelphia.
