He either turns it around this year, or he doesn't really have a career. I hope he does, I've always really liked him, but I've kind of lost hope.

I've been generous with my hot takes lately - here's one more. By the end of the season Jazz fans will be almost unanimous Dante deserves his contract.

A broken clock is technically correct twice a day, but the odds are not in favor. Dante is a long shot, and therefore expendable if the right deal comes along.

I'd say your to late because Exum has already made basketball a career. :banghead:

MC/DM/Ex/Bogie/RG lineups would be a sneaky small ball lineup.

I would love to know what Exum's weight is now. Guarding the elite 3's may be a stretch, but your league average guys (Harrison Barnes, Tim hardaway jr?) seems feasible. Then on offense you'd say the opposite team would be putting their worst defensive wing on Exum in that lineup...... I'm a glass half full kinda guy

Article with Dante Exum quotes in this link;

https://www.sportingnews.com/au/nba/news/dante-exum-knee-injury-rehab-says-utah-jazz-are-primed-for-a-big-season-we-have-something-special/1jnutreg2x5cd1fx8o6zpf2pj6

Nothing earth shattering - going to be a tough year, thinks the Jazz building something special, all Jazz players are good people which is important in building a successful team, looking forward having Conley to learn from, rehab on schedule (does not give a return date). Also a short video where he says that he is loong foward most to the Philly game as he wants to beat Simmons.

His American accent has gotten really strong in the past 6 months.

Any update on him? Some offence creativity of the bench would definitely help.

He’s been practicing fully since about a week ago. There was a rumor he might have played Friday versus the Bucks.

It sounds like he’s close, but I’m not sure there’s minutes for him anyways.

I'd like to see what he can do with Mudiay's minutes.

If he doesn't work I would trade him for peanuts and I would give his money to Mudiay. He is doing what Exum should (in offense) altough in defense it's another story.

I’ve been very anti-Mudiay as well as an Exum optimist...but I wouldn’t play Exum over Mudiay. That could change though. Mudiay is a very up and down player.

When Exum does play, he needs to be an energy guy. Starting Royce is the right move, but we lack energy coming off the bench. Especially with Davis our.

He's currently energizing the Chinese market.

No. You don't have to pay a dime to watch. Now when he comes back and you buy a ticket? Then you can claim you paid to watch. Jazz are really playing it slow this year with EX. :banghead:

In the semis or finals if the jazz are fortunate enough to get there.... everyone here will have little patience for dante passing up or missing key perimeter shots. And that's if he's not in a suit.

I don't know why people continue to insist on this. The Jazz are not shopping Exum. In fact EVERY SINGLE PIECE OF EVIDENCE and reporting we have is that they are trying hard NOT TO INCLUDE HIM in trades. Tony has been on fire with his Jazz reporting this off-season... he's gotten pretty much everything right... I have no reason to doubt him and furthermore - you don't have to rely on just his reports - just look at what the Jazz have been doing and trust their actions if you don't trust Jones' reports - they gave him a contract noone else in the league would have given him. They continue to heap praise on him every chance they get. They continue to refuse to include him in trades(twice in the Conley trade now)... it would have been so much easier to just include him in the Memphis trade and get a full max-ish slot available(instead of just the 17M we got by trading Favors). They didn't. To me all the evidence points to what Tony is reporting - the Jazz truly value Exum and expect big things from him.

We don't have to agree with the FO's evaluation. But we have to stop with those scenarios where we drop Exum and use additional 1sts to add a non-impact player. IMO Exum will play out his contract with the Jazz and either take the step they expect him to take or they just won't give up on him until his contract is out.
