    Dante Exum scored a season-high 20 points on 6-of-14 shooting (3-of-5 3PTs, 5-of-5 FTs) with four rebounds, two assists and one steal in 21 minutes off the bench in Thursday's loss to the Sixers.

    Exum might pick up a few minutes if Jae Crowder misses time but he needs a few injuries ahead of him before he has any real fantasy value.

    Dante Exum tied a season-high with 15 points on 7-of-9 shooting, two rebounds and four assists in 17 minutes off the bench in Tuesday's Christmas Day win over the Blazers.

    Exum is way off the fantasy radar and he needs to keep defending at a high level because the rest of his game still needs work.

    Dante Exum had a solid night at the office on Wednesday, scoring 14 points to go with three assists and two 3-pointers in 22 minutes against the Heat.

    Exum was quite good aside from five turnovers, even if the line isn't eye-popping. He's settled in as Utah's backup point guard and his natural length and athleticism make him a nice secondary weapon, particularly on the defensive end. If only it would result in fantasy value.

  • Kyle Korver

    Kyle Korver played 22 minutes off the bench and scored 14 points (4-of-6 from deep) and added a block in Friday’s win over the Hornets.

    Not too bad for Korver’s first game in a Jazz uniform. Grayson Allen and Dante Exum didn’t play at all which is why Korver played 22 minutes off the bench. If Korver continues to get heavy usage off the bench he could be useful as a 3-point specialist in deeper-leagues.

  • Raul Neto
    G, Utah Jazz

    Raul Neto (right hamstring) was evaluated on Thursday and will be reevaluated in two weeks.

    The Jazz determined Neto was “showing progress” but evidently not enough to even consider a speedy return. Raul won’t have any value as Dante Exum is holding down the backup point guard role quite nicely.

    Dante Exum played 26 minutes on Wednesday night and posted 13 points, four rebounds, four assists and a 3-pointer against the Kings.

    Exum took full advantage of a bad performance from Ricky Rubio and looked pretty good out there. Talk of him playing in three-guard groups appears to be real, and the Jazz are clearly comfortable using him when Rubio is struggling. He's an early-season add candidate in deep leagues.

    Dante Exum has been removed from the injury report and should play in Sunday's game.

    Exum was dealing with right knee soreness but his limited work was said to be precautionary. If the uber-athletic guard can hold up against larger players, the Jazz have mentioned a willingness to use him at small forward. Deep league owners should keep an eye on Exum.

    Dante Exum will miss Friday's preseason game with knee soreness.

    Exum has dealt with injuries throughout his NBA career, so this is mainly maintenance to make sure that he doesn't aggravate anything in the preseason.

    Dante Exum (right knee soreness) has been ruled out of Tuesday's preseason matchup with the Raptors.

    The Jazz are extremely thin at point guard with Raul Neto also out, so we could see some unfamiliar faces handling the playmaking duties tomorrow. Exum has a lengthy injury history through his first three seasons in the league and the team will make sure he's 100 percent before sending him back on the court. He could be a deep league target this year as his role is set to expand.

    Dante Exum mentioned that he might play a little bit of small forward this season.

    Three-PG looks are becoming more and more common, and Exum has the length to hang with small forwards on the wing. He was the recipient of a surprising three-year, $33 million deal this summer so it's clear that the Jazz still believe in his athletic profile despite constant injury issues. Exum's talent and expanding workload might put him on the map in deep leagues.

    The Utah Jazz have officially re-signed Derrick Favors to a 2-year/$36 million deal.

    The Jazz also officially completed their deals for Dante Exum and Raul Neto. Exum re-signed for $33 million over 3 years while Neto re-upped for $4.4 million over 2 years. Favors has a good chance to approximate his top-100 production from last year while Exum and Neto will have a hard time producing standard league value considering the Jazz’s depth in the backcourt.

    The Jazz and guard Dante Exum have agreed to a three-year, $33 million contract extension, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

    This is a great deal for Exum, especially considering his injury history. The Jazz might have overpaid a little, even more so when you consider the state of the free agent market, but they've locked him up regardless.
