First of all, if you haven't seen 6-foot-6 Australian combo-guard Dante Exum in action, check out these highlights;

Okay, now that we're all caught up, Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski is reporting that Exum has begun meeting with "several prominent agents" in anticipation of joining the 2014 NBA Draft.  Exum is currently a student at the Australian Institute of Sport. His father played for the University of North Carolina.

Exum is only 18 and already has pro potential.  Draft Express has him listed as the number four pick in their mock draft. He played for Australia in the FIBA under-19 Championships and at the Nike Hoop Summit in Portland, which is where scouts got a chance to look at his game and many came away impressed with his abilities and athleticism.

The consensus is that Exum will indeed declare for the Draft and come to the States in February to begin workouts.  "I want to make a decision by February," Exum said in an interview with with the Sydney Morning Herald.  "It shouldn't be too hard to make."
