Jazz Assign Dante Exum To G League As Part Of Late Stage Rehab 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Mar 13, 2018 5:27 pm

The Utah Jazz have assigned Dante Exum to the G League for a rehab stint.


Exum will participate in a closed practice on a rehab assignment as part of his last stage in return to play protocol. 


Exum underwent surgery to stabilize the AC joint in his left shoulder on Oct. 24, 2017 after suffering the injury in a preseason game against Phoenix on Oct. 6.

Thanks for the honesty.

I am hoping jazz through him a 6mil 2-year deal, or at least something.
If hes not even gonna play and his potential doesnt pan out he has his head screwed on right and will be a good lockerroom pressence.
I hope he can get out of injuries and fulfill his potential, he could still make a great backcout with DM in the future.

$3M/per year just for being a good locker room presence is way too much. I’ll do it for half that.

22years old, still got alot of potential, and has been around nba alot.
Thats why hes more expensive than your typical lockerroom presence

Given his history of knee injuries, he may already be the next Shaun Livingston
