The Utah Jazz ensured that guard Dante Exum will remain with the team for the future after inking the Aussie to a three-year, $33 million contract extension earlier this summer, and Exum is looking to do more for his team now that his future is settled.

“I wanna play 82,” Exum said, according to Olgun Uluc of FOX Sports Australia. “I played 82 in my first season. That’s 100 percent my No. 1 goal. I think, just being given that opportunity to play 82, I’m going to earn my minutes, earn my time, and be in one of those critical roles where I can have a major impact.

“Not just an impact; a major impact on a team. I want to be that guy on at the end of the game, and even taking the last shot. I think that’s a goal I’ve definitely set for myself, and expect myself to make.”

The thought of a frontcourt featuring Williamson and Ayton would instantly elevate the Suns.

“My feeling was they probably shot a shot,” Donovan said, according to Ben Golliver of the Washington Post. “Paul kind of went in and dunked it. Both teams played the game all the way out.”

George declined to comment on the dunk in the post-game presser.
