Even assuming we give the edge to Teague on offense, Hill’s...

Former No. 5 pick Exum, Hill to compete for minutes on Jazz

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Dante Exum has consistently been called the point guard of the future after being drafted No. 5 overall in 2014 by the Utah Jazz but that doesn't mean he'll be the starter next season. Exum started 41 games as a rookie and was supposed to hold onto that role last season but he tore his ACL in the summer and missed the entire year. The Jazz have maintained his...

Dante Exum cleared for full basketball activities, won’t play in Rio

Two summers ago, Dante Exum was one of the most intriguing young basketball prospects in the land. But after staggering through a less-than-impressive rookie season with the Jazz, then blowing out his knee playing for his native Australia in an international friendly, Exum seems like all but a forgotten man.
