The Grizzlies are expected to "aggressively recruit" Mike Conley and make him their first priority for free agency, according to general manager Chris Wallace.
This is obvious. The good news for Memphis is that the Knicks are out of the running with Derrick Rose heading to NYC. The Grizzlies should get some competition from the Bulls, Spurs and Dallas -- the Mavs have also said Conley is a high priority for them. The Grizzlies have been confident for months, so they're the favorites. Jun 25 - 7:20 PM

Some executives within the Grizzlies' organization are reportedly growing a bit concerned about the possibility of losing Mike Conley as an unrestricted free agent this offseason.

Memphis basically peaked in 2011 with their Western Conference Finals appearance, and it's clear that they are no where near contention for a championship, so perhaps Conley looks for a change of scenery as a free agent. Marc Gasol (foot) is currently recovering from a series injury, Zach Randolph (34) is another year older, and the only guys on the books for the upcoming season aren't the type of role players that will genuinely help the team improve. Conley can make the most money by re-signing with Memphis, but that may not be as important to him at this stage in his career.

Mike Conley (Achilles) is completely healthy and he is hoping to earn a spot on the Team USA roster for the 2016 Olympic Games.

With Stephen Curry and Chris Paul (hand) opting out of the Rio Games and John Wall recovering from knee surgeries, there's going to be less competition for the point guard position on the Team USA roster, so Conley will have a chance to prove himself during the Team USA mini-camp this summer. Conley is also going to be an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and after ending his 2015-16 campaign on the sidelines, he could perhaps buoy his value with a strong performance at the Olympics.

Memphis head coach David Fizdale said that Mike Conley is one of the best "pure" point guards in the league.

"[He’s] a guy that understands when a guy needs a shot, a guy that understands when to put his foot on the gas, a guy that understands when to lead, when to let someone else lead, a guy that knows when to take the shot, and a guy that defends his position at a high level," Fizdale said. "He’s a two-way player." Fizdale also added that he had a very "energized" and "open" conversation with Conley about his free agency this summer, and he sounded confident that the point guard would return to Memphis.

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.

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.
May 10 - 11:37 AM

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.
