As many longtime supporters of Jazz point guard Dante Exum noted on social media Saturday night, the price of real estate on “Exum Island” is skyrocketing. Exum finally seems to have unlocked some of the potential that led the Jazz to select him No. 5 overall in the 2014 NBA Draft, to have become a fully productive rotation piece. Of course, Jazz fans — and coaches, and teammates, and front office personnel — have seen this all before, though never for such an extended duration. “I’ve just been putting in a lot of work in the practice facility,” Exum said when asked the reason behind his recent success. “And then I’m just going out there and trying to play as comfortable as possible, get to my spots, try and do what I do.” Derrick Favors, when asked what he’d seen from Exum in recent weeks, echoed one of those words. “He looks comfortable out there.

I think it would be great if we could have a team one day. Thank you so much for all of your reporting on our women's team, aside from … [Read more...] about WNBA, lots of Kawhi and some fashion in the mail

Catch up on the latest from around the NBA as we take a look at who has helped their stock most in the last few weeks. by Juan Carlos Blanco 49s ago • 4 min read Whose stock is trending up or down? Here's the Fantasy Basketball Stock Watch: GUARDS GAINING VALUEJustise Winslow, MIA: Winslow has been thriving in his role as the primary ball handler for the Heat in the absence of Goran Dragic (knee), a role that's led to the third-year pro racking up a trio of 20-point efforts, including a near triple-double, in three of his last four games. The 22-year-old has also complemented his offense with an uptick in steals, compiling 11 swipes alone over that four-game period. Malik Beasley, DEN: Gary Harris' hip injury played a significant part, but Beasley's recent surge has put him on the Fantasy map moving forward. The 22-year-old appears to have carved himself out a sizable backcourt rotation role with contributions that include three 20-point … [Read more...] about Fantasy Basketball Stock Watch: Who’s up, who’s down in the NBA in Week 12
