Report: Grizzlies guard, Mike Conley, traded to Utah Jazz
According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, the Memphis Grizzlies have traded Memphis guard, Mike Conley, to the Utah Jazz for Jae crowder, Kyle Korver, Grayson Allen and two first round picks, including this year's #23.
The Jazz will send a protected 2020 first-round pick to the Grizzlies, league sources tell ESPN. That pick will convey as a late-lottery pick in 2020 or 2021, or become a lightly-protected pick from 2022-'24. Deal complete on July 6. https://t.co/UY47lnIOWU— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) June 19, 2019
Conley is scheduled to earn $32.5 million this coming season and $34.5 million for 2020-21. This clearly puts the Grizzlies in rebuild mode, indicating a probable high lottery pick in 2020. The Celtics own the Memphis pick in 2020, top-6 protected, so Boston has a bit of a stake in this transaction.
