Australian star Dante Exum is about to sign a three-month contract with Barcelona, Kema de Lucas reports.
This was after the previous Pick 5 was abandoned by the Houston Rockets as a late roster cut before the season, despite signing a three-year $ 8 million deal with the Texas franchise in September. ..
However, it was a non-guaranteed contract, and the rocket had 15 other players with guaranteed deals.

The last NBA player, the 25-year-old Cleveland Cavaliers, was traded to the Rockets on a four-team contract that sent former MVP James Harden to Brooklyn Nets after playing six games last season.
Exum’s NBA career has been plagued by injuries, and he has played 245 games in seven seasons since Utah Jazz drafted his fifth round of selection in 2014.
However, a 6-foot-5 guard made his name in the history of Australian basketball at the Tokyo Olympics. He played an important role off the bench in a bronze medal with an average of 9 points and 2.8 assists in 6 games.
Exum will arrive in Spain next week to begin training with the EuroLeague and ACB powers.
He helps assist the injured Barcelona guard Nick Calathes. Nick Calathes will be out until the New Year with a fracture of his left fibula.
