The Utah Jazz trade for Mike Conley.

in nba •  last year  (edited)

Today was a good day. I woke up to a tweet from the WOJ!!! If you do not follow the NBA very closely you may not know who the WOJ is.

WOJ - Here is a quick briefing from google.

"Adrian Wojnarowski, nicknamed Woj, is an American sports columnist, reporter and author. He is currently employed with ESPN, having previously covered the NBA for Yahoo! Sports."

WOJ always is the one that drops the NBA trade bombs first. Go follow him on twitter if you want to be in on the know.

Anyway, WOJ tweeted that the Jazz picked up Mike Conley from the Grizzlies. I wanted that trade to go though last year and thought that it was dead when it did not happen. Mike Conley is a top 10 point guard in the NBA. He is 31 years old and when healthy provides the perfect storm for the of defense and offense of the Utah Jazz. He is undersized but that doesn't stop him. He will pull a lot of pressure off Mitchell. I believe that this will allow Mitchell to grow and greatly improve his game because he will not be the only go to guy night after night.

I hope your team is getting the players you want as well.

Yeah, picking up Conley for some scrubs is huge. His salary is pretty high, but with Mitchell and Stifle Tower coming into their primes, the time to go for it is now.
