FC Barcelona and Dante Exum have reached an agreement for the next three months, until 28 February, via the official club's report.

Team: Houston Rockets
Position: PG
Age: 26
Height: 198 cm
Weight: 86 kg
Birth place: Melbourne, Australia

Despite penning a three-year deal in the offseason with the Rockets, on October 10, the Houston club waived the Australian guard to get down to the 15-man roster limit.

The 26-year-old Exum was the fifth overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft (Utah Jazz) but hasn't met the expectations. He has been injury-prone, including missing the entire 2015-16 season due to an ACL tear in his left knee.

Exum has career averages of 5.7 points and 2.1 assists in 245 games (72 starts) with the Jazz (2014-19) and Cleveland Cavaliers (2019-21). He has shot 40.7 percent from the field, including 30.5 percent from the 3-point range.

Exum played in just six games (three starts) for the Cavaliers last season and averaged 3.8 points, 2.8 rebounds, and 2.2 assists. He suffered a season-ending calf injury in early January and then was traded to the Rockets as part of the blockbuster deal in which James Harden went to the Brooklyn Nets.

The 1.96-meter athlete returned to full health in the Tokyo Olympics and helped Australia win bronze medals by averaging 9.0 points, 3.7 rebounds, 2.8 assists, and 9.2 PIR over 20 minutes.
