I don't see Burke as a great asset manager at all... he got lucky on some deals just like every GM does. Some players just take another step in their development after being dealt.

Burke has given away a lot of assets or seen them devalued after the brought them to his organization... and he's always been a terrible drafter as well, and hasn't accumulated a lot of assets through the draft through most of his career.

At best, he's average when it comes to overall asset management.
