Sixers Meet with Australian Point Guard Donte Exum
Australian point guard Dante Exum met with the Sixers, Pistons and Suns per a tweet from Alex Kennedy. Exum is considered to be one of the most intriguing players in the upcoming NBA draft, and measured 6-6 in shoes, 196 pounds with a 6'9.75 wingspan.
That's huge for a NBA point guard.
Sixers coach Brett Brown is familiar with the 6'6", 18-year-old guard from his time as coach with the Australian national team. That could give Brown a leg up on in terms of information that other teams don't have.
Some would as the question, don't the Sixers already have a point guard? Michael Carter-Williams was just recently named the NBA rookie of the year, scoring averaging 16.7 points, 6.2 rebounds, 6.3 assists and 1.9 steals per game.
However, Carter-Williams had surgery to repair the labrum of his right shoulder on last Tuesday, he now seems doubtful to play on the 76ers' summer league team and there is no timetable for his return.
So would the Sixers really entertain the thought of trading Carter-Williams?
On draft day just one year ago, ne SIxers GM Sam Hinkie dealt his all-star point guard Jrue Holiday to New Orleans in exchange for the sixth pick, which they took, Nerlens Noel and an extra first round pick in this year's draft.
There is very little information on Exum and he'll be one of the most watched players at the NBA Draft Combine thats for sure.
