Houston Rockets Re-Sign Guard Dante Exum

Dante Exum Rockets

The Houston Rockets have re-signed veteran guard Dante Exum.


Exum, 26, was selected fifth overall by the Utah Jazz in the 2014 NBA Draft; but despite his impressive skill, was never able to capitalize on his potential.

In seven seasons in the league, Exum has averaged 5.7 points, 2.1 assists, and 1.8 rebounds on 41% shooting from the field, via Basketball Reference.

Exum won a bronze medal with the Australian Men’s National Team at the Toky0 Olympics, averaging 9.0 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 2.8 assists, via FIBA.

It’s hard to say for certain where Exum will fit in the Rockets’ rotation next season.

Exum will almost certainly slot in behind Kevin Porter Jr., Jalen Green, and Eric Gordon.

However, a lot could change before opening night – and Exum could end up playing more minutes than expected.
