Australian teenage basketball sensation Dante Exum may not be going straight into the NBA.

The 18-year-old from Canberra has told ESPN he plans to visit five of America's elite colleges before making a decision on whether to enter the June 26 NBA draft.

Exum will tour Kentucky, Michigan, Indiana, North Carolina and Oregon.

The move is a surprise as the 198cm guard is forecast to be a top five NBA draft pick without playing a second of college basketball.

If he is selected in the top five, Exum can expect a $US5 million ($A5.66 million) rookie contract.

America's top sports agents will be flying to Australia in the next month in the hope of representing Exum if he turns pro.

If Exum elects to play college basketball and does not live up to the hype or suffers an injury, his NBA draft stock will likely fall.

How do you expect the Breakers to perform in this season's Australian NBL?

Last season was a blip, they'll be champions once again

They'll go close to another title, beaten finalists I'd say

Playoffs for sure, but can't see them going any further

Not too excited, they'll miss the playoffs again
