SALT LAKE CITY — This week, Utah Jazz guard Dante Exum participated fully in a team practice for the first time since injuring his right knee last spring. Selected No. 5 overall in the 2014 NBA draft, the former lottery pick suffered a partial tear of his patellar tendon in March that required surgery and hours of intensive rehabilitation over the ensuing months.
