According to Marc Stein of ESPN, the Spurs will "court" Mike Conley in free agency this summer.
Conley is going to have several suitors this summer and Memphis is going to do everything they can to re-sign him, but the chance to join a contender like the Spurs would be hard to pass up. Tony Parker struggled this season and will be 34 years old next season, and it's no secret that the Spurs need to add some more athleticism to the roster. The Spurs could also have some additional cap space if Manu Ginobili and Tim Duncan decide to retire. May 13 - 9:16 AM

The Grizzlies will reportedly do everything they can to re-sign Mike Conley.

Conley will be the top point guard on the free agent market this offseason and will get a max contract wherever he signs. While Conley would see a boost in fantasy value elsewhere, Memphis can offer him the most money and it would be a surprise to see him sign with a team other than the Grizzlies.

Memphis team officials are confident that they will be able to re-sign Mike Conley this summer according to the Memphis Commercial Appeal.

Conley is obviously the Grizzlies' No. 1 priority this offseason, and they can also offer more money to him than any other team. Regardless, Conley will be the best point guard on the open market this summer, so he's going to get a max deal. A move away from Memphis could actually improve his fantasy value, but he's going to be a stud no matter what.
Apr 30 - 12:12 PM

Mike Conley is looking forward to free agency and expects it to be a fun process.

While saying his decision is different than Marc Gasol's to re-sign with Memphis last summer, Conley sounded excited for free agency. "This summer will be a fun one for me," Conley said. "Free agency is new for me. We’ll see how it goes." Conley is considered to be the best point guard available this summer and will have no shortage of suitors. He could see a bit of a bump in fantasy value in a new locale, but the Grizzlies are expected to do everything they can to bring Conley back.
Apr 26 - 10:02 AM

Mike Conley said that money will not be the "deciding factor" in his upcoming free agency.

This is pretty much standard language at this stage of the game, so there is no real takeaway here now that the Grizzlies have concluded their season. Memphis can offer him an additional season on a five-year deal while every other club will be limited to a four-year offer, and the franchise has been adamant that they'll do whatever it takes to bring Conley back into the fold.
Apr 25 - 12:46 PM

General manager Chris Wallace is confident the Grizzlies will be able to re-sign Mike Conley (Achilles).

"We are undefeated in re-signing our core players, and we will remain so," Wallace said. "We are going to re-sign Mike Conley." Conley was Wallace's first impact move when he became GM back in 2007, but there are some reports Conley could be headed out of town. He'll be one of the most coveted players in July.
Apr 20 - 3:03 PM

According to Ken Berger of CBS Sports, Mike Conley is "expected" to leave Memphis in free agency this summer.

The source is very credible, so it's hard to ignore this report. Conley is considered the top free agent amongst point guards this summer, so he's likely going to be looking at several maximum contract offers with the salary cap set to expand rapidly. Memphis will make it their top priority to re-sign Conley this summer and Marc Gasol has been vocal about his desire for him to return as well, but expect the rumors to heat up if the Grizzlies are eliminated in the first round of the postseason.

Mike Conley (Achilles) will not withdraw his name from consideration for Team USA this summer.

Conley will not play again during the 2015-16 season due to his Achilles, but this a strong indication that he could recover in time for the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil this summer. Conley is also set hit unrestricted free agency this summer and will be the best point guard on the market, so he's expected to receive some max offers.
Apr 9 - 9:50 AM

It was determined that it is in Mike Conley's (Achilles) best interest to not return to action until the 2016-17 season, according to Ronald Tillery of the Memphis Commercial Appeal.

He was re-evaluated last week to get this prognosis. Conley is still walking with a limp, has soreness and is still wearing a walking boot. He will be a free agent this summer, but the Grizzlies will likely do all they can to bring him back. It'll be Jordan Farmar starting at point the rest of the way.
Apr 4 - 6:11 PM

Mike Conley (Achilles) is not expected to be re-evaluated until after the end of the regular season.

The Grizzlies want him to be 100 percent for the postseason and his initial timetable had him returning to the court for the last week of the regular season. Most fantasy owners should move on unless they want to stash him in an IR spot. With Conley on the shelf, Ray McCallum and Jordan Farmar will likely continue to split minutes at PG moving forward with Xavier Munford in the mix as well.
Mar 25 - 10:10 AM

Mike Conley (Achilles) is expected to return by the end of the regular season.

The Grizzlies gave him a timetable of 3-4 weeks back on Mar. 12, so at best he will only play in a few games down the stretch. They obviously want him to be 100 percent for the postseason, so expect them to be very cautious with his return. His owners should look elsewhere for production if they're in a win-now situation.
Mar 20 - 9:37 AM

Mike Conley has been diagnosed with left Achilles tendonitis and will miss the next 3-4 weeks.

This is a huge blow for the Grizzlies and it sounds like Conley might not be able to return during the regular season. The Grizzlies already lost Mario Chalmers (Achilles) for the season and were forced to waive him, so Briante Weber is the only active PG left on the roster. Memphis is expected to sign free agent PG Ray McCallum, but he and Weber are both worth speculative pickups in deeper leagues while we see how this plays out. Additionally, Lance Stephenson's gets a significant boost as well.
Mar 12 - 11:52 AM

Mike Conley (foot) will not play against the Pelicans on Friday.

He is meeting with doctors about his sore Achilles. Coach Dave Joerger said there could be an update on Saturday before their game. Conley is likely going to miss time going forward, though. The Grizzlies will be in trouble tonight with Briante Weber and Lance Stephenson at the point. Ray McCallum should sign and is worth a speculative pickup in deep leagues.
Mar 11 - 7:43 PM

According to the Memphis Commercial Appeal, Mike Conley is considered out indefinitely due to a sore Achilles.

He has been sidelined for the past two games and it sounds like he won't play on Friday vs. the Pelicans either. The Grizzlies signed Briante Weber to a 10-day deal on Friday and they have also been linked to free agent PG Ray McCallum, so they might be preparing for Conley to miss additional time. His owners just need to stand pat until we get another update from the team.
Mar 11 - 11:03 AM

Mike Conley is dealing with soreness in his left foot and will not play in at least the next two games.

That's not good for the Grizzlies, who are running out of bodies. Conley likely suffered the injury on Sunday against the Suns. Mario Chalmers was already worth owning in standard leagues and now he's basically a must-start player. The Grizzlies may also use Lance Stephenson as a backup point guard. Conley's owners should be benching him this week.
