Dante Exum scored 16 points with two rebounds, four assists and one steal in 25 minutes against the Celtics on Thursday. The Jazz talked him up for his extra effort this summer and he came through with a great run in Utah Summer League. After the game, Exum said he'll be headed back to Australia to enjoy some down time before he heads back to be with the team. He won't be playing in Las Vegas and there could be some trade rumors surrounding him.

Dante Exum dominated Wednesday's 100-94 win vs. the Sixers' Summer League squad, double-doubling with 26 points on 9-of-16 shooting, three 3-pointers, five rebounds and 10 assists in 29 minutes. Exum looked far more polished than the competition, which is exactly what Utah wanted to see from their 2014 lottery pick. "He's not the young guy anymore," Utah Jazz Summer League coach Alex Jensen said. "It's time. You've got to stand out." Exum passed the initial test but he still has plenty to prove before demanding fantasy owners' attention.

Dante Exum looked great in Monday's Summer League opener, scoring 18 points on 7-of-12 shooting with six rebounds, five assists, one block, two treys and four turnovers. Exum is about to enter his fourth NBA season (third if you include his ACL injury that kept him out for a year), so the Utah coaching staff challenged him to be the best player on the floor tonight. Exum looked terrific and that would've been the case, but Donovan Mitchell stole the show in the second half. The Jazz brought in Ricky Rubio this summer, so Exum will have to make a living with his defense off the bench in 2017-18. For now, he's not a fantasy target in standard leagues.

Jazz general manager Dennis Lindsey said he will target a veteran point guard in free agency. The Jazz would obviously like to bring back George Hill and the feeling is mutual, but they may not be able to afford him with Gordon Hayward and Joe Ingles also hitting the open market. The Jazz have been linked to point guards such as Ricky Rubio and Patrick Beverley, but the latter is likely more available. Lindsey did say that Dante Exum has "responded in a big way" in terms of offseason improvement and he's expected to showcase that growth at Summer League, but it's clear that the Jazz aren't ready to hand the keys over to him.

Dante Exum will play in the Utah Jazz Summer League, but not in Las Vegas. The Jazz are still waiting for Exum to come around. It's not often you see a player with as much experience as Exum play in summer league, but the 2014 pick has a slew of holes in his game on both ends. Coach Quin Snyder and general manager Dennis Lindsey both challenged Exum this summer, so they'll probably be using him a ton when he's active next month.

Exum could see his role change with the Jazz's addition of Donovan Mitchell, a combo guard selected with the 13th pick of the 2017 NBA Draft.

Jazz GM Dennis Lindsey said that Utah plans play to play Dante Exum at multiple positions next season. Exum has not lived up to expectations since being selected fifth overall in the 2014 draft, due in part to missing the entire 2015-16 season due to an ACL tear. However, he did show signs of progress in the 2017 postseason. Going forward, Utah envisions making the most of his versatility, including playing him off the ball. "The team functioned better when Dante was playing a wing, versus point guard, but there’s point guard in his future, there’s two-guard and even three because of his unique size, length and speed and hopefully developing strength," said GM Dennis Lindsey.

Dante Exum scored a playoff career-high 15 points in Monday's Game 4 loss to the Warriors. George Hill (toe) missed his third game in a row and Exum played arguably his best game of the season, starting the second half in place of Joe Ingles and hitting 5-of-14 shots with three boards, two assists, one steal and one triple in 32 minutes. Exum averaged just 6.2 points, 2.0 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 0.7 triples in 18.6 minutes per game during the regular season, but could be looking at a larger role in 2017-18 with George Hill and Shelvin Mack hitting free agency. Exum doesn't have great upside in fantasy and his defense is his bread and butter, but we'll be keeping an eye on his development this summer.

Dante Exum made his playoff debut on Sunday with three points and one assist in 12 minutes of action. The Jazz struggled to contain Jamal Crawford and Raymond Felton tonight, even after coach Quin Snyder went to Exum over guys like Shelvin Mack (five minutes) and Raul Neto (seven minutes). Exum played well but his role isn't certain for Game 5 -- it's hard to trust him unless Snyder explicitly says he's earned reliable minutes.
