By THE SPORTS XCHANGE
Utah Jazz guard Dante Exum had surgery to repair a torn ACL in his left knee on Thursday.
The procedure was performed by Dr. Neal S. ElAttrache of Kerlan-Jobe Orthopaedic Clinic in Los Angeles.
Exum will return to Salt Lake City and begin his rehabilitation. The team said there is no timeline for his return.
The Australian was injured Aug. 4 while playing for his national team in an exhibition game against the Slovenian national team in Ljobljana, Slovenia.
—The Miami Heat signed forward Greg Whittington to an undisclosed contract.
Whittington averaged 9.1 points, 6.2 rebounds, 2.0 assists, 1.44 steals and 1.33 blocked shots in nine 2015 summer league games, including six starts, in Orlando and Las Vegas.
In the Las Vegas Summer League, Whittington led the team with 65 points, 41 rebounds, eight blocked shots and eight 3-point field goals.
—The Sacramento Kings reportedly are bringing back forward Eric Moreland after letting him go earlier this summer.
The Kings will re-sign Moreland to a one-year contract that includes guarantees, according to reports on Thursday.
Moreland was waived in late July before his guaranteed salary for the 2015-16 season kicked in on Aug. 1. His addition brings the Kings’ roster to 15 players, which is the regular-season limit.
—Landry Fields, a free-agent guard, reportedly will spend the next five months recovering from hip surgery.
Fields, 27, had a torn labrum repaired, a league source told Yahoo Sports on Thursday.
Fields had spent parts of the past three seasons with the Toronto Raptors. Last season, he played in just 26 games as he struggled with an arm injury.
