Australian point guard Dante Exum met with several agencies with all indications that he plans to enter the NBA Draft, reports Yahoo! Sports' Adrian Wojnarowski.

Exum, 18, is expected to be a high draft pick in this summer's NBA Draft, which is also expected to feature prospects such as Kansas stars Andrew Wiggins and Joel Embiid, Kentucky forward Julius Randle and Duke forward Jabari Parker.

BUKOWSKI: Prospect Watch: Embiid's upside gives him shot at No. 1

Wojnarowski cites two agents in the report with one stating, ”I would be shocked if he doesn’t enter the draft,” and the other saying, “I can’t imagine him not coming out.”

More from Yahoo! Sports:

Several of the agents who traveled to Sydney to meet with Exum and his family over recent weeks believe it's inevitable that the gifted young forward will bypass college basketball and enter the talent-rich 2014 NBA draft class.
