2020-21 Cleveland Cavaliers Guy to Watch: Dante Exum

Dante Exum had a gnarly injury last season, but so far in the preseason has looked solid. That being said, the Cavs are bad and injury plagued and have the worst kind of position battles going on- the kind where guys are rotated out because they’re bad, not because the alternative is better. Exum has the potential to be a good offensive threat if he can stay healthy. While it’s likely he will come off the bench for Cleveland this season, he can do some damage in a pesky second unit that will cause trouble for some middling playoff hopefuls.

He was a touted prospect when he was drafted, but has never been able to live up to the hype due to his health. Sadly, with most of this Cavs team, health will be a major factor in determining if they get the most ping pong balls, the third most ping pong balls, or somewhere in between.
