#Dante Exum

Australian point guard Dante Exum is returning to the Utah Jazz, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Exum, who was a restricted free agent, has reportedly agreed to a three-year, $33 million contract, a sign the Jazz organization has plenty of faith in his ability, despite recent injury setbacks.


Injuries to his ACL and shoulder have limited him to just 80 regular season games over the past three seasons, but the 22-year-old has shown flashes of his exciting potential on both sides of the ball, giving Utah a strong backcourt rotation alongside Ricky Rubio, Donovan Mitchell, Raul Neto and Alec Burks.

Exum missed most of last season with a shoulder injury, but impressed through the final 14 games of the regular season, averaging 8.1 points and 3.1 assists.

His showing in the playoffs left fans excited at what the future could hold, with some standout defensive performances against James Harden and the Houston Rockets.

All signings will not be official until the end of the NBA moratorium period on July 6.
