Australian Star Dante Exum Says He’d Love To Play For Lakers

Dante Exum Wants To Play For The Lakers.

The 6’6 Australian star point guard declared for the NBA draft last week. It came as no surprise, considering Exum is projected to be the first point guard selected.

Where will the Aussie star land?

If it was up to him, it would be the Lakers.

“Definitely L.A. is one option,” he said. “I’ve been to L.A. many times and I love the city, and it is a great city. If I get the opportunity to go to L.A. and play for the Lakers, I know I’ll have love for the city. And their fans are loyal and they have the rivalry with the Clippers. But just to be in an environment where you have a great player like Kobe, where you have a mentor in a way as a rookie, I think that would be the best option.”

A Dante Exum-Kobe Bryant backcourt would be interesting.
