In his Media Day session on Monday, Jazz coach Quin Snyder called Mike Conley “an elite point guard,” but also went to great lengths to reiterate that he needed to observe all the new players operating within the framework of his system in order to have a true gauge of their capabilities and not be relying upon “preconceptions.” So then, on Wednesday, two days into the team’s 2019 training camp, what had the coach learned of the team’s major offseason acquisition? “It’s unusual that you trust a player so quickly, but he’s earned that,” Snyder said. “That’s who he is.”
What does taking the next step look like for Donovan Mitchell? Justin Zanik: From a team standpoint, the expectations are on all of us. And it’s incumbent on us to help him grow, but the rest of the team’s got to perform as well. So it’s not a one-man show here. Donovan would probably be the first one to tell you that. He’s got his big brother protecting the rim, and he’s got guys around him that are talented, and he obviously learned a lot from Ricky Rubio, but the opportunity to play with Mike Conley is gonna be great.
