Dante Exum trains with D-League team
Dante Exum's faltering season has cost him a place in Utah's NBA squad, with the Jazz demoting the Australian to their D-League affiliate.
The 21-year-old will train with the Salt Lake City Stars on Tuesday (AEDT) rather than preparing with the first team for their clash with Cleveland the following day.
Despite being fit, Exum has been left on the bench by coach Quin Snyder for the Jazz's past two matches.Source
He has found himself behind star point guard George Hill and Snyder's preferred back-up Shelvin Mack, having endured his first 'did not play - coach's decision' in a game in November.
Could just be for practice on an off day? Hopefully a good chance for him to get time and confidence before working his way back. Presumably Snyder is trying to win now rather than prioritise development, which is reasonable with their roster.
