Dante Exum comparison.

Dante Exum reminds of a taller Leandro Barbosa. I see the pair as more of a Shooting Guard that can play PG in spurts. Exam is likely the more willing and better passer, but he isn't a real facilitator. Also both have slight builds and elite foot speed, however aren't elite leapers. Exam doesn't fool around with the ball much like Barbosa either his go to move is a decisive blow by his man to try to get at the rim.

This is a really short comparison because Dante Exum is very young and in his basketball career.

I like Dante Exum...

I like Dante Exum as a big-time shooting guard prospect. This website compared him to Penny Hardaway, but I think that realistically he has a chance to be a mix between Steve Smith and Reggie Lewis

I tend to compare

him to George Gervin, Clyde Drexler, or if you need a modern comparison, a taller Dwayne Wade.

He's a driving SG who excels at getting to the rim and drawing contact, and finishing through it.

He also could end up being the best pro out of the class, although there's no way he gets drafted over Wiggins.

6'6 Tony Parker. In all

6'6 Tony Parker.

In all videos I've seen he has blown by guys like they aren't even moving. In Hoop Summit scrimmage he was past Wiggins and at the rim in a second flat. I think his elite skills only begin with his first step being unguardable, he can finish over a guy when he gets to the rim as well. This kid is serious and I think his potential is as high as anyone's.

He reminds me of a rich man's

He reminds me of a rich man's Alec Burks, but also bares some similarities with Doug Christie and Reece Gaines (as a prospect, not as an NBA player).

The current hype suggests that he'll be the best of the bunch (though Christie had a long/productive career), but those were just the guys that popped into my head first.
