Conley will soon undergo a procedure that smooths a small bone protrusion in his left heel. The team insists that Conley will be healthy before the Grizzlies open training camp in the fall. Conley said he’ll be ready for basketball activities around late May or early June. “That was the point of emphasis,” Conley said. “We wanted to try to get it done so I could have a normal summer.”

But if a guy [Hassan Whiteside] is a 7-footer, and motivated to serve as a rim-roller and a rim-protector and has some offensive game and isn’t a complete jerk and can be melded into the salary cap? He’s still got a place. And yes, if certain “sweeteners” were part of the deal, the Mavericks, I’m told by NBA people close to the situation, could still have a place for him. The Mavs themselves cannot say this, of course; his contract is property of another team, and announcing interest is tantamount to tampering. But the Mavs can and do scout players, all of the players, as all teams do. And I’ll give you an “educated guess” that their opinion of Whiteside, at the right cost, mirrors Whiteside’s opinion of himself.
