NBA Rumors: 3 Potential Landing Spots For Jazz Guard Mike Conley

He'll be 35 by the time the season begins, but point guard Mike Conley can still be a solid contributor on a contender. As the Utah Jazz continue their sell-off, Conley could find himself elsewhere before long. 

The veteran former All-Star averaged 13.7 points with 5.3 assists for the Jazz last season, while starting 72 games, and shooting a sizzling 40.8% from beyond the arc.

His contract could be a factor in moving him, however, as he's still got 2 years and $47M remaining. 

With all that in mind, here's a look at three possible destinations for Conley if he gets moved.

Dallas Mavericks

The Mavs lost guard Jalen Brunson in free agency, and that's a 16-point, 5-assist hole that Dallas needs to plug. While cheaper options are available on the free agent market, for a team with championship aspirations, Conley would be a much more secure solution. 

Tim Hardaway Jr. makes just under $20M this coming season, only two mill less than Conley, so that's a potential salary match for a trade. 

Los Angeles Lakers

This one makes a lot of sense as well, as the Lakers are trying to unload Russell Westbrook, and Jazz CEO Danny Ainge would be happy to take on his expiring $47M—if the Lakers were to throw in those two available first-round picks that everyone's been talking about. 

Conley's $22M could be packaged with the likes of Bojan Bogdanovic and/or Rudy Gay and others to make the salaries work. 

New Orleans Pelicans 

The Pelicans are this close to being a contender, what with the return of Zion Williamson, the emergence of Brandon Ingram, and the steady influence of CJ McCollum. A veteran point guard with Conley's experience could be a very nice piece for the Pels. And they do have the assets to send in return. 

All eyes are on Danny Ainge as he weighs the next moves for the wheelin' and dealin' Jazz.
