“I had offers but wanted to be part of what we do in Utah”

For Mike Conley the NBA and the Memphis Grizzlies had always gone hand in hand. After a long career in Tennessee, the point guard headed for Utah with a future full of doubts before him. Now, Conley has found her new home.

In the Jazz has been done with a role of great value, bringing experience and seniority to a team that is doing things very well. Conley knows this and that is why renewing was not a difficult decision.

There were other teams that showed interest like Chicago, Dallas or the Knicks … For me it was easy, he had no doubts about what he wanted. I want to be part of the path and the project that we have created in Utah, he recently recounted in an interview for The Athletic.

Conley ended up signing his renewal for 3 seasons and a total amount of 68 million dollars. Few teams would have offered him such a contract, making his decision even easier.

I lived what we did in memphis, the commitment of the dressing room, the relationship with the fans … That’s what i want to bring to utah, have a chance to be part of a common project that is so beautiful“he declared.
