03:51 PM ET 02.04 | The NBA Draft isn't until this summer but already teams are starting to look at potential strategies, even if none of them are completely serious at the moment. Players entering the draft are also looking at where they could possibly be playing ball next year and Australian sensation Dante Exum has his eyes set on two very different markets. According to NBA writer Jared Zwerling, Exum would like to be drafted by either the Orlando Magic or the Los Angeles Lakers this summer. Exum stated that he's good friends with former Indiana Hoosiers and current Orlando Magic guard Victor Oladipo, someone he wouldn't mind joining in the NBA.

Not really. He's only going by stats. By the end of it all, both lakers and ORL might end up with very similar records.

Scary because this kid sounds like Kobe when he first came into the league. He wanted the Lakers and got the Lakers. In this day and age, I think kids coming into the league shouldn't say anything like this to hurt his stocks.

With the way the Lakers are playing he very well may end up on the squad come draft day.
