No way. Just no way they could unload Wall that fast.

I pray he stays healthy.

He looked so focused and proud of his own contribution to that Olympic medal. Was amazing to see.

He did look pretty good at the Olympics, would be great to see him do well after the bad run of injuries

Man I've been hearing for so long that this guy just needs to be healthy and he could be good. Is there anyone holding out for this still?

Probably not but he's only 25. He's been too injured to play much for 4 years. The shooting was getting closer to average for a bit there but he's still a guy without much to offer offensively. Driver without the strength to drive.

I think his appeal (if he can get healthy) is becoming a low-usage defensive backcourt mate. I can squint and see Exum as a good backcourt partner for Green, take the tough backcourt assignments, and provide a size advantage.

He was a beast 4 years ago for the Jazz in the playoffs. If he's healthy, this is an absolute steal

Hope he can stay healthy, that was the only thing preventing him from being a starter in this league
