The Utah Jazz are reportedly expected to initiate offseason trade talks with the Memphis Grizzlies about Mike Conley after failing to acquire the point guard before the NBA trade deadline in February.
Kevin O'Connor of The Ringer reported the update Wednesday, noting "multiple league sources said this week that the Jazz are expected to make another push" for the veteran guard.
Conley bounced back from an injury-plagued 2017-18 campaign to average a career-high 21.1 points along with 6.4 assists, 3.4 rebounds, 2.2 threes and 1.3 steals in 70 appearances this season. Among point guards, he ranked sixth in ESPN's player efficiency rating and ninth in ESPN's real plus-minus.
Despite his individual success, the Grizzlies posted a 33-49 record and finished 15 games shy of a playoff berth in the highly competitive Western Conference.
