Monson: Exum could be great one day, but not today

Jazz rookie guard could be great one day, but not today

That seemed to be true. It’s much too early to draw conclusions, but Exum looks fluid on the floor and quick. He’s not a vertical player, but he can move. And he can pass. And he looks easily for open teammates. On one possession, Exum drove the baseline and drilled a pass to Trey Burke in the corner, from where Burke dusted the net with a 3. On another, he had his pocket picked, giving up the ball and a layup on the break.

It’s going to take some with the youngster. But the rudiments Lindsey talked about are there. It will be months, no … years, before we know how far those rudiments, mixed with hard work, will take Dante Exum. This is the on-ramp to an early undulating road.
