NBA Draft Rumors: Boston Celtics Very Intrigued In Australia's Dante Exum

Written by 

The Boston Celtics are intrigued in Dante Exum.

The NBA lottery is only six days away, and the Boston Celtics have already expressed interest in a prospect.

Dante Exum, Australia's finest, has caught the Celtics' radar significantly, according to a league source who told CNNE's A. Sherrod Blakely. Exum, a 6-foot-6, 188-pound specimen, is projected to be a top-five selection. His game is similar to Penny Hardaway. He is lightening fast with great ball-handling skills and shooting abilities.  This is not to say the Celtics will choose him come NBA draft because one, the order has yet to be determined and two, Celtics president basketball of operations Danny Ainge could pursue an opposite direction with his pick, or a trade could happpen.
