Dante Exum Meets With Several Agents, Expected To Declare For 2014 Draft
Dante Exum and his family have met with several agents in Australia and it is believed he will skip college to enter the 2014 NBA Draft.
Exum is widely expected to be one of the top half dozen picks with a chance to go higher based on the workouts.
"I would be shocked if he doesn't enter the draft," one agent who recently met with Exum's family told Yahoo Sports. "He knows he's a lottery pick, and knows several teams have him very high on their boards. His family knows that this is an opportunity that may not come again."
Another agent who traveled to Australia told Yahoo: "This is a bright, thoughtful kid – a great family – and they're taking their time to think all this through. But in the end, I didn't sense anything that would hold him back from [the draft]. … I can't imagine him not coming out."
Exum's family has been careful to preserve his college eligibility and leave open the option for him to pursue college basketball. Exum has visited Indiana and may visit others before the season is over.
Exum's father, Cecil Exum, played at North Carolina.
