Dante Exum is one of the biggest unknowns in the NBA draft this year. Playing only high school in Australia, Exum doesn’t have high-level experience of other prospects, but his physical tools have scouts salivating.

The Lakers have already interviewed the other top point guard prospect in Marcus Smart, now the OC Register’s Bill Oram reports that the Lakers will be one of many to interview Exum tonight:

The Lakers know they have a big hole at point guard, even though they are likely to bring back Kendall Marshall for cheap, and Jordan Farmar wanting to return to the Lakers. Many believe Exum could turn out to be the best player in the draft.

There has also been a lot of rumors about Exum trying to force his way to the Lakers. However NBA.com’s Scott Howard-Cooper says that Exum has denied that:

If the Lakers pick at six or later, it is unlikely that Exum will be available for them to select as he is expected to go in the top three. But if the ping-pong balls go their way next week, Exum will definitely be one of the biggest targets for the Lakers due to his tremendous upside.

    I hope we either draft Dante Exum or Marcus Smart we need a Point Guard.The NBA is driven by Point Guards in this day and age in the NBA.I think Dante Exum will get picked by Orlando and we will be needing to move up to 1,2,3, in order to draft Exum.Marcus Smart will be at #6 barring a shocker.Lakers will be prepared for everything come draft night.Everything is riding on this draft pick.

      Correct we need PG Exum or Smart is the right choice..

  • vdogg

    draft this kid if you get the chance, mitch!

  • kookiebuger

    Exum certaintly is an intriguging prospect but the only way the Lakers can get him is with a top 3 draft pick, with that said if the Lakers get a top 3 draft pick they should try to trade down 4 (Exum will likely go at 4) and try to get a future draft pick/ young promising player along with Exum.

    if anyone gets a chance to read mark medina’s column on exum at the draft combine, it’s worth a look. it sounds like exum doesn’t want to come out and say that he wants to be a laker.. but it seems like that’s what he’s feeling. check out medina’s twitter feed for a link to the article.

      Yes, vdogg Dante would have to force his way to the Lakers… he could do it but it would make him look bad doing it… I for one would love to see this kid with the Lakers.

      • vdogg

        not if the lakers get a top 3 pick, he wouldn’t!

        • Levels

          I agree… but the Lakers can’t get 4 or 5th pick.. thats the only way to get Exum… and watching the combine today I’m not sure about Marcus Smart… only 6’2 maybe 6’3… not a true pg too short to play 2 guard … If the Lakers don’t get a top 3 pick I can see them trading it…

  • EmperorKing

    Jordan, Bryant and then Exum..

  • EmperorKing

    Dante Exum will be a great franchise player for the LA Lakers team also Marcus Smart..
