Dante Exum, more wood for the Barça de Jasikevicius: A father of Jordan, a 'Draft' damn and a Renaissance in Europe

"He has many of the best players in Europe," praise Pablo Laso to the eternal rival, who since this week has in his workforce to another talent "worldwide". The last reinforcement of Jasikevicius is Dante Exum, is 26 years old and a career that he already went through several 'lives'. He was promise in a damn 'draft', the new Jewel of the Australian basketball that at 19 was 19 year old in Spain and then jumped to the NBA, where, however, injuries have torped the progression. Now, after playing the Tokyo games but not finding a hole in the Rockets, he goes as temporary to a Barça "Justito de players", according to his technician. A three-month contract as an opportunity for a guy who does nothing was called to be a reference.

The Boomer's debut will be one of the great attractions of the classic of this Friday (21.00 h., Dazn), the second of the season after the final of the Supercopa (83-88 for Real Madrid), the 10th since Saras arrived To the azulgrana bench and began to change the trend of the last decade: with the Lithuanian, six defeats of Laso. Barça and Madrid at the EUROLIGE Summit, equal both in the lead (11-2), although if last season the lesions ruined the whites, in the present they are hitting the azulgranates strong.

That's where the arrival of Exum is explained, despite the economical hardships of the club. Saras ran outless without three of the outdoor references of him and nor openers, nor Calathes or Higgins will return in the short term. Because the Australian, despite the light of his seven seasons in the NBA, of his very high choice in the 2014 Draft (fifth for jazz), from his recent bronze medal in the Games, is a kind in search of a Renaissance: A few weeks ago he was fired by the Rockets.

The day that everything was twisted for Dante was a summer of 2015, when he was disputing a friendly with his selection in Slovenia. He had just played the 82 games like Rookie in Utah, half as the headline, and the left knee ligaments were broken. The next season he would not play any match, incident in the curse of that draft, in which other outstanding elections passed through a similar physical trance: Joel Embiid, Jabari Parker, Julius Randle, Aaron Gordon ...

Back to the NBA, in October 2017 he suffered another injury on the shoulder through which he had to go through the operating room. Also in 2019 he had serious problems on the right knee, before being transferred to the Cavaliers, which in January 2021 they sent him to the Rockets, where he did not even wear the shirt. That powerful Australian of almost two meters, born in Melbourne of American parents -cecil, his father, played next to Michael Jordan, Sam Perkins and James Worthy at the University of North Carolina and with it won the NCAA title in 1982- , I was never going to be the same, despite not stop trying.

This summer, with its future in the NBA more in question than ever, returned the T-shirt of the Aussie team, with which he won the first Olympic medal of his story. Together with Patty Mills and his company showed the recovery of him: in the nine games, he averaged nine points, 3,7 rebounds and 2.8 assists and stood out for the defense of him to Doncic in the Bronze Party . "He is very smart and versatile. I hope he does it well and he can stay," John Carlos Navarro about Exum, more wood for a team made to win everything.
