Mike Conley Jr. spent two full seasons with the Utah Jazz. While not all of it went swimmingly, the 14-year NBA veteran became an integral part of the team with the best record during the regular season.
The Jazz All-Star was asked about his plans for his impending free agency. Conley didn’t make any hard commitments, but was vocal about how much he loved his time playing for the franchise.
Via Deseret News:
“Obviously I can’t speak, look into the future what exactly will happen,” the Jazz star said. “It’s actually like my first time being a real free agent, so it’ll be interesting, but I did love it here and we’ll see what happens.”
“Free agency is free agency…it’s something that I have to sit back and consider with my family and when that time comes, make the decision that’s best for us, myself. Like I said, obviously I’ve had a great time here, great, great experiences, coaches — Coach Quin (Snyder) and the players, Don (Mitchell) and Rudy (Gobert) and everybody, so we’ll just have to see what happens.”
Mike Conley Jr. was a steadying presence alongside the Jazz’s dynamic superstar in Donovan Mitchell. While most Jazz fans and decision-makers would love to have Conley back, you can never tell with free agency.
