Dante Exum is one of the most exciting young prospects worldwide. From the Australian Institute of Sport, he’s currently considered an international prospect who will be eligible for the 2014 NBA draft.
However, he’s left open the option of attending college in the United States and then enter the draft in 2015, though this seems less likely.
At 6’6’’, Exum can run the show as a point guard or play off the ball as a scorer. He’s a sensational athlete with the explosiveness shared by some of the NBA’s best.
While most combo guards are given that label unwillingly, Exum’s is by choice. He has the size and skill set to handle both positions effectively.
Exum is lightning quick off the dribble and can create his shot moving north, south, east or west. He’s a capable shooter, though improving from the outside will likely be his focus moving forward.
He scored 16 points against Team USA at the Nike Hoops Summit and has become a must-know prospect for NBA draft junkies.
