“I think we have a great team,” Exum said. “And it’s not just on paper; everyone’s good all round. I think everyone’s a good person, and is gonna gel well together. I’ve already worked out with Mike Conley and Mudiay, and it’s all guys that wanna work and get better, and we’re all team guys. As long as we’re winning, everyone’s happy. I think, whenever you have that type of mentality on an NBA team, it’s the best thing.”
“I actually have a great relationship with Quin,” Exum said. “He hates when I call him Quin; coach. In the first couple of years, he was definitely the hardest on me. There’s a story me and Joe like to tell: it was, one time Joe made a mistake in practice and coach just ripped me for it, and even Joe went to coach and said ‘hey, it was my fault’, but coach still just ripped me. I’ve kind of learned how he coaches, and what he expects. He’s just a coach that wants the best for all his players, and wants to get the best out of me. I want that, too, so I respect it.”
The 24-year-old says he’s spoken to the Jazz about his desire to continue playing for the national team and he has hatched early plans to be part of the Boomers’ Olympic campaign in Tokyo. “I just want to get a healthy season, that’s my main focus for now,” Exum told reporters in Sydney on Tuesday. “But granted, if I’m 100 per cent healthy, I’ll definitely put my hand up.”
