The Australian combo guard will be eligible for the 2014 NBA Draft, a report says.

Australian combo guard Dante Exum has declared for the 2014 NBA Draft, Chad Ford of ESPN reports, ending speculation that he might forego the Draft for at least one season of NCAA ball. Exum has hired Rob Pelinka and Brandon Rosenthal from Landmark Sports Agency.

At the FIBA U19 Championship for Men in 2013, Exum averaged 18.2 points, 3.6 rebounds, and 3.8 assists per game on 44.6 percent shooting from the field. The East Melbourne native does not turn 19 until July 13th.

"Exum can play both guard positions and has the ideal blend of athleticism and skill," Ford says. "However, scouts believe that ultimately he'll be an NBA point guard with elite size (6-foot-6, 188 pounds) as he is very quick with the ball and gets to the rim almost effortlessly."

The prospect of Exum's entering the Draft has excited some Orlando Magic fans who are eager for the team to add its point guard of the future. Depending on where Orlando selects, Exum could be in play for the team.

On January 15th, Jared Zwerling of Bleacher Report reported that the Magic are a "dream team" of Exum's, given his strong relationship with Orlando rookie Victor Oladipo.
