The Memphis Grizzlies have assembled a top team in the NBA with Mike Conley, Tony Allen, Jeff Green, Zach Randolph, and Marc Gasol. However, two of those pieces may not be members of the Grizzlies much longer, as Marc Gasol will become an unrestricted free agent this Summer, as well Conley in 2016. Conley is refusing to sign an extension as of right now.
Can’t the Grizzlies, in the name of stability, try to lock up Mike Conley for the long term before he ends up on the open market like Gasol?
The Grizzlies would love to.
Sources say, furthermore, that they’ve tried to engage Conley in extension talks. More than once.
But the five-year, $40 million pact they signed Conley to in 2010 — openly second-guessed all over the NBA map at the time — proved to be too shrewd.
Conley averaged 15.8 points, 5.4 assists, and 3 rebounds per game in 70 regular season games for the Grizzlies during the 2014-2015 season.
