So which teams could use (Dante) Exum? While (Randy) Livingston said “really any team because he has so much talent and so much upside,” Exum has two in mind: the Lakers and Orlando Magic.

“Definitely L.A. is one option,” he said. “If I get the opportunity to go to L.A. and play for the Lakers, I know I’ll have love for the city. And their fans are loyal and they have the rivalry with the Clippers. But just to be in an environment where you have a great player like Kobe, where you have a mentor in a way as a rookie, I think that would be the best option.”

As for the Magic, he envisions helping his close friend Victor Oladipo—they met at Indiana during Exum‘s recruiting visit when he was contemplating college—with point guard duties.
