Dante Exum signs $US33 million Jazz deal

By Peter Mitchell, AAP US Correspondent

Australian guard Dante Exum has agreed to stay with the Utah Jazz in a three-year, $US33 million contract extension.

Exum has battled through multiple injuries since the Jazz drafted him with the fifth overall pick in 2014, but the big contract shows what upside team management believes the 22-year-old has.

Exum and fellow Australian Joe Ingles have become key players in the Jazz's emergence as a playoff team in the NBA's loaded Western Conference.
