“I just want to come in and try to help be a leader of the team,” Exum said during an interview from Barclays Center in Brooklyn. “I know I’m young, but I want to come in and establish that. As a point guard, (I’ll) try and be that guy people can turn to and rely on.”

Incidentally, one of the first people to congratulate Exum and welcome him to the Jazz organization was Utah point guard Trey Burke, who was a guest of honor at the draft.

“I think the exciting thing about Dante specifically is he has the speed to play guard, he has the size and length to play wing,” Lindsey said. “We’ll let nature take its course. … He’s coming in behind two great guards (in) Burke and (Alec) Burks. I think in time he’ll be a good contributor.”
