Anyone have any updates on him?
After OKC chose not to pick up his contract, it's been difficult to find out where he landed.

OK, so does anybody know what's going on with former Marquette great Deonte Burton?

No idea what he's up to but this thread made me go back and watch his dunk over Samford.

Wherever Deonte is, let's just hope nobody is demotivating him.

Maybe our crack MSM Scoop pros can track down the REAL Deonte Burton story?

Best I can tell, still hangs around OKC, active in the Skinz League, but that's about all I found.

Currently not in the league (NBA or G-League) and has also not signed another agreement elsewhere.

Not much is found but in the articles OKC didn’t feel they could use a spot on him as his shooting regressed and they aren’t seeing improvement.

He served a suspension from the year before for fighting with teammates in the locker room. Don’t know if that played a role in that but I think at the end of the day they saw more value elsewhere.

I don't know but I still asked myself who would be in the NBA Slam Dunk contest as a Wisconsinite and have a chance to win it first or at all....DEONTE BURTON
or JP TOKOTO . . . both of them had hops!

One was left handed and many said jumper was suspect and the other left handed. Both elite athletes and could really help a team if they were patient...

That dunk off would have been amazing to watch, eh!?

If the best we could do is Deonte v. Tokoto, that wouldn't be all that amazing.

Was Deonte the player with the father telling telling the coaches where Deonte should be playing?

That was Maymon.  Like 12 years ago.

TY, Marquette transfers for some reason don't stick in my memory.
