Mike Conley and the Grizzlies are on the verge of agreeing to a five-year, $153 million contract, according to multiple reports.
Apparently, that video worked.
With this move, Memphis stays relevant in the deep West and a threat (although not elite). They needed to keep Conley, he is one of the best defensive point guards in the league, a smart floor general, shot 36.3 percent from three, and he’s good at getting players the ball when and where they want it. He would have been an All-Star had the West not been loaded with other great point guards at the same time (Curry, Westbrook, Lillard, Parker, etc.).
This is the move Memphis had to make, but I like how they have reshaped their roster. Now we’ll see what coach David Fizdale can do with it.
