Barcelona adds Dante Exum to backcourt

FC Barcelona boosted its depleted backcourt by signing point guard Dante Exum to a three-month deal, the club announced on Tuesday. Exum (198 cm, 26 years old) signed a contract through the end of February. He will help Barcelona, which is currently missing point guard Nick Calathes and shooting guards Cory Higgins and Alex Abrines due to injuries. Exum has spent all seven years of his professional career in the NBA – the first five with Utah and the last two with Cleveland. He had 245 appearances over that span, during which he averaged 5.7 points, 2.1 assists, and 1.8 rebounds. Dante Exum is also a member of the Australian national team, which he helped to a bronze medal at the Olympic Games in Tokyo last summer with 9.0 points, 3.7 rebounds, and 2.8 assists.
