A return to action is looming for Dante Exum

NBA: Philadelphia 76ers at Utah Jazz Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

According to Andy Larsen of the Salt Lake Tribune, Dante Exum was a full participant in Utah Jazz practice today.

This shouldn’t be too much of a surprise as we have heard from Tony Jones that a return for Exum could be as soon as this Friday.

For Jazz fans this is welcome news. Currently, the Jazz have the number 2 defense in the league and Exum will add to that with his ability to switch and guard multiple positions.

It will also be interesting to see how Exum fits into the new offensive system. Much has been said about the spacing the Jazz have had on offense with the additions of Mike Conley and Bojan Bogdanovic. Donovan Mitchell is flourishing because of it.

Could having more space unlock Exum’s talent? He has an elite first step and solid ability to throw a lob. At the very least he’ll be another tool in the toolbox for Quin to use.
