In the 10 weeks since the NBA draft, we have not had all that much opportunity to watch Jazz guard Dante Exum — who was chosen with the fourth pick that day — in action. He played in five Summer League games in Las Vegas this summer and, now, five more games with the Australian national team at the FIBA World Cup.

What have we learned?

“Not much,” said an Eastern Conference scouting director, laughing. “He’s not ready for the NBA, that is for sure. But a lot of guys are not ready for the NBA and they have got to learn on the fly. He is no different. But he is not going to jump into the league and all of a sudden average 20 points a game. There’s just no way.”
