Mike Conley to Clippers? Unlikely to happen

- by

The Los Angeles Clippers are reportedly more interested in Fred VanVleet than Mike Conley if they are going to address the point guard position ahead of the Feb. 9 trade deadline. “Conley to the Clippers, I can tell you that that one is, I think, unlikely to happen because I don’t know if the Clippers are willing to throw in that first-round pick,” ESPN’s Tim MacMahon said during a conversation with Zach Lowe on The Lowe Post podcast (29:15 mark). “If they are for a point guard, I think it’s more likely VanVleet than it is for Conley.”

This is weird, Bryce Young (Alabama) and CJ Stroud (Ohio State) are having a shooting contest at the @Utah Jazz game.
Probably the top two QB’s drafted this year.

With Luka out, Josh Green will make his second start this season…joined by Dinwiddie, Hardaway Jr., Finney-Smith & Powell. Utah is starting a front line of Markkanen, Walker Kessler & Kelly Olynyk, who is returning from an 8 game absence. Backcourt is Conley & Clarkson. – 9:03 PM

Mike Conley: I’ve been at a loss for words over the death of Tyre Nichols. I’m sending love to his family and to the city of Memphis, and I share in your pain over this tragic loss. Justice for Tyre. pic.twitter.com/KyRIXXoc6E -via Twitter @mconley11 / January 28, 2023
Now that Utah has come down to earth, the front office is believed to be shopping veterans such as guard Mike Conley. Conley’s contract is favorable, with $14.3 million of $24.4 million guaranteed next season. The same (real or wannabe) contenders are thought to have interest, among others: the Lakers, Clippers and Timberwolves. -via Bleacher Report / January 25, 2023
And while the market is not exactly teeming with top-shelf talent, GMs and scouts identified several players that could meet the needs of those three teams: Detroit Pistons forward Bojan Bogdanovic, Utah Jazz guards Mike Conley, Malik Beasley and Jordan Clarkson; Orlando Magic guard Terrence Ross; and Houston Rockets guard Eric Gordon. -via FoxSports.com / January 20, 2023
