Former No. 5 pick Exum, Hill to compete for minutes on Jazz

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Dante Exum has been consistently called the point guard of the future after being drafted No. 5 overall in 2014 by the Utah Jazz. That doesn't mean he'll be the starter next season.

Exum started 41 games as a rookie and was supposed to hold onto that role last season but he tore his ACL in the summer and missed the entire year. The Jazz have maintained his rehab has gone wonderfully, but they still traded the No. 12 pick as part of a three-team deal that brought George Hill from the Indiana Pacers. Hill started 73 games for the Pacers last year and, more notably, was the starter in 2012-13 and 2013-14 when Indiana advanced to the Eastern Conference finals.

While the deal cannot be announced officially, Hill's agent, Bill Neff, confirmed the details.
