He added, "Just looking at the teams that are interested in me, I don’t see a team that doesn’t look like a good fit."

His mother, an American who attended the University North Carolina but has lived for years in Australia, was caught once driving in the left lane.

Exum, meanwhile, is learning what it takes to be a pro.

"The most important thing I’ve learned is it’s what happens on the court that gets you in the NBA and [what happens] off the court that keeps you in the NBA," he said. "That’s something I’ve taken very seriously, how I prepare for games and my workouts."

Those workouts can be tedious at times.

"It kind of gets to the point where you’re thinking, ‘When am I actually going to get to play some 5-on-5?’" Exum said.

But the 18-year-old knows he won’t have to wait much longer.

He’ll hear his name called soon.

So will everyone else.
