Are Grizzlies Close to Trading Mike Conley to Jazz?
With less than 24 hours away from the 2019 NBA Trade Deadline, the Memphis Grizzlies could be on the verge of trading one of their best centers in franchise history.
As of Wednesday, February 6, 2019
According to Tony Jones of The Athletic, the Utah Jazz are interested in acquiring PG Mike Conley from Memphis. Jones also stated that Utah gave the Grizzlies a final package that includes expiring contracts, first round picks, and second round picks. However, Jones said that when the Grizzlies asked about possibly getting PG Dante Exum in return, Utah refused. Fortunately, the Jazz would be willing to send both Derrick Favors and Ricky Rubio to the Grizzlies. What this whole thing means is that there is still a chance Mike Conley gets traded by the NBA Trade Deadline. Conley will become a free agent in the Summer of 2021 and he has played for the Grizzlies in his entire 12-year NBA career.
The Jazz (31-24) are currently in playoff position as the seventh seed in the Western Conference. Meanwhile, the Grizzlies (22-33) own the second worst record in the Western Conference. Conley is not the only Grizzlies player in trade talks as Memphis traded C Marc Gasol to the Toronto Raptors.
The 2019 NBA Trade Deadline is on Thursday, February 7 at 3:00 P.M. EDT/12:00 P.M. PDT.
