Grizzlies coach David Fizdale reportedly wants Mike Conley to "[take] on more of a scoring role" this season.
Conley will spend more time playing off the ball in a faster-paced Grizzlies offense, which is great news for his prospective fantasy owners. Memphis ranked 27th in pace last year and Conley's usage rate of 22.4 percent was his lowest in three seasons -- with both of those numbers likely to rise, he's a safe bet to improve upon last year's top-60 valuation.

The Grizzlies and Mike Conley have agreed in principle to a five-year, $153 million deal.

ESPN's Marc Stein adds that the two parties are still working on details, but it's the richest contract in the history of the NBA. Conley is going to be 29 years old to start his deal, so the fourth and fifth years will be past his prime. His games-played have dropped in each of the last three seasons, with a drop in scoring output for the last two. For fantasy, the drop in overall productivity knocks him out of the early rounds in standard leagues.

The Grizzlies will offer unrestricted free agent Mike Conley a five-year max offer, according to Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com.

That would be a whopping $153 million over five years for Conley. He's easily the top point guard in this free agent class and there was almost no doubt he could command a max deal. The Grizzlies added Chandler Parsons to the fold to help the Grizzlies change their identity a bit. Conley fell off a tad with Dave Joerger compared to Lionel Hollins, so maybe he can bounce back with coach David Fizdale. Conley will be 29 in October.

According to ESPN's Marc Stein, Mike Conley is "lasered in" on Memphis and Dallas.

Chandler Parsons and Conley have discussed playing together in Memphis, but Parsons won't follow him to Dallas if that's where the guard ends up. Stein hinted that the Grizzlies are in an "ultra-strong position," so it sounds like the Grizzlies are the favorites to re-sign him.

Unrestricted free agent Mike Conley is still pondering a meeting with the Rockets, according to ESPN's Jeff Goodman.

An earlier ESPN report today said the Rockets wouldn't get a meeting with the clear-cut No. 1 point guard option in free agency. For now, it looks like it's a two-horse race for Conley between the Grizzlies and Mavs.

The Grizzlies are "very confident" they will retain unrestricted free agent Mike Conley, according to NBA.com's David Aldridge.

This confirms a previous report from Marc Stein of ESPN. The Grizzlies have been very confident the entire time, so this isn't a big surprise. The Mavericks are going to meet with Conley on July 1 and remain Memphis' primary competition.
Jun 30 - 7:52 PM

The Rockets reportedly will not be granted a meeting with unrestricted free agent Mike Conley.

It sounds like Houston is out of the running for Conley's services, and they will now shift their attention to getting a quality reserve to backup starter Patrick Beverley. The Grizzlies remain the front-runners to re-sign Conley, although they will have some serious competition from the Mavs.

The Grizzlies believe they can re-sign Mike Conley, according to Marc Stein of ESPN.

Conley will have plenty of interest as one of the better free agents on the market, but the Grizzlies think they can hold off aggressive pursuits by the Mavs, Rockets, Nets, Bulls, and others. Conley could see an uptick in fantasy value if he signs somewhere other than Memphis, but the Grizzlies can offer him the most money so it would be a surprise to see him sign elsewhere with this news.
Jun 30 - 9:58 AM

Free agent Mike Conley will meet with the Mavericks on July 1, according to ESPN's Chris Broussard.

Plenty of teams are interested in Conley, the summer's premier unrestricted FA point guard, and his meeting with Dallas doesn't imply that they have an advantage in signing him. The Grizzlies are expected to "aggressively recruit" him as their No. 1 priority during free agency, but may be balking at a five-year offer which only they can make. Memphis faces heavy competition from potential suitors like the Rockets, Nets and Bulls, in addition to the Mavs.
Jun 30 - 12:19 AM

The Spurs interest in unrestricted free agent Mike Conley has reportedly been overstated.

Conley will still receive plenty of interest during free agency, but apparently the Spurs won't be one of those teams. The Mavs, Rockets and Nets will all be making a bid for Conley's services, while the Grizzlies will do everything they can to retain him. Conley will reportedly give Memphis the last word, but he wants to see the team upgrade the roster before committing to a long-term deal with the franchise that brought him into the league.
Jun 29 - 9:14 AM

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.
Jun 7 - 4:13 PM

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.
May 31 - 4:01 PM

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.
