Dante Exum didn't work out for the Utah Jazz, who own the No. 5 pick in Thursday's 2014 NBA Draft, because they drafted point guard Trey Burke last season, via David Locke, the radio voice of the Jazz:

Would the Jazz take him anyway if he was available? It's probably be irrelevant, as it looks likely that Exum will be selected either third by the Philadelphia 76ers or fourth by the Orlando Magic, but it's still interesting. The Sixers drafted point guard Michael Carter-Williams last season. The Magic drafted Victor Oladipo and then played him a lot of minutes at the position. Most view Exum as a combo guard who has the length to defend shooting guards.
