Utah Jazz Acquire Mike Conley in Pre-Draft Blockbuster

The Utah Jazz are ready to take the next step.

After failing to make a deep playoff push the past couple of years, the Jazz decided to make a big splash by acquiring point guard Mike Conley from the Memphis Grizzlies. In return, the Jazz will send Grayson Allen, Kyle Korver, Jae Crowder, the 23rd pick of this year’s Draft as well as a future first-round pick. Conley has two years remaining on his five-year, $152.6-million deal.

The move provides the Jazz with an additional scoring play-maker, relieving Donovan Mitchell from some of the pressure of being forced to often do too much on the offensive side of the ball.

As the Grizzlies tear down the final column of the Grit-N-Grind era, the move allows the Grizzlies to shed some more cap space as they enter full-blown rebuild mode. Conley has spent all 12 of his NBA seasons in Memphis and will now replace Ricky Rubio who the Jazz look ready to give up in free agency.

The deal between both teams is expected to be completed on July 6.
