It was just more than a year ago that Dante Exum tore his ACL while playing for the Australian national team. The injury forced him to miss the entire NBA season, and he is not with the Boomers in Rio (where they take on the USA Wednesday).

But good news for Jazz fans, Exum says he is fully recovered and will be ready to roll next season. He talked about that, the Australian national team, the new players union digs and more in this video.

Exum and George Hill are going to split time at the point for Utah. The Jazz were an up-and-coming team in the West already before Hill and Joe Johnson were added to the backcourt this summer. With Gordon Hayward playing for his next contract, this Jazz team looks headed to the playoffs next season.
