NEW YORK (AP) Mike Conley of the Memphis Grizzlies is the winner of the Joe Dumars Trophy for sportsmanship.

The NBA made the announcement on Saturday.

Conley previously won the award in 2013-14. He joins Grant Hill (3) and Jason Kidd (2) as the only multiple winners since the award’s inception in the 1995-96 season.

The NBA will make a $10,000 donation on behalf of Conley to his charity of choice, Methodist Healthcare Foundation. The money is earmarked for the sickle cell center.

Conley received 58 of 327 first-place votes and 2,209 total points from NBA players, who voted among six finalists.

The annual award for ethical behavior and fair play is named for former Detroit Pistons guard and Hall of Famer Joe Dumars.
