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.

Dante Exum (hip) was able to start Monday's game at Golden State, finishing with seven points, six rebounds, two assists and two steals over 36 minutes. Exum wasn't very good, misfiring on 11 of his 14 field-goal attempts, including a dismal 1-for-7 from the perimeter. Despite the off shooting night it appears safe to get him back into the active lineup in all fantasy leagues allowing daily moves for Wednesday's regular-season finale against the Spurs.

Dante Exum (hip) is not on the injury report for Friday's game vs. the Wolves. Exum left Tuesday's game with a right hip contusion and never returned, but he practiced on Thursday and is good to go. George Hill (groin) is expected to miss yet another game, so Exum and Shelvin Mack will hold down the fort at PG. Exum isn't a great fantasy option, though.
