Dante Exum likely to enter the NBA draft


To the surprise of absolutely no one, Dante Exum is expected to enter next summer’s NBA draft. Exum met with several powerhouse agents in Sydney and left a strong impression that he plans to choose the NBA over college basketball, according to Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

“I would be shocked if he doesn’t enter the draft,” one agent told Wojnarowski. “He knows he’s a lottery pick, and knows several teams have him very high on their boards. His family knows that this is an opportunity that may not come again.”

Last month it was reported Exum will take an official visit to Kentucky and to his four other finalists: Indiana, North Carolina, Michigan and Oregon. Those visits may be unnecessary if his mind is already made up.

ESPN and Draft Express project Exum as a top five pick, listed as the fifth overall prospect on the board.

    Too bad we couldn’t have nabbed him for the Spring semester though there’s no way to tell if that would have helped or hurt our chemistry.

      If he played in college, he would have had to play the entire year after the spring semester.

    Dang it. I was hoping to get him to drink some of my pickle juice. My son has never had cramps thanks to me.
