It looks like we know now what’s holding up the deal. Utah’s willing to send their 1st rounder, but unwilling to send a 2021 1st rounder. Memphis is asking for 2(!!!) 1st round draft picks. Which seems incredibly steep. Memphis knows Utah is desperate to add third piece, it’s testing if Utah is that desperate to mortgage their future for a better present.

Original Story

It looks like the Utah Jazz don’t want to be left out of the excitement. Marc Stein of the New York Times is reporting that the Utah Jazz have undeniable interest in the Grizzlies Mike Conley. It appears the deal right now may only be held up by what additional compensation Utah can provide Memphis. Memphis currently would like prime draft compensation for the 31 year old point guard.

Considering how quickly the New York to Dallas deal came to fruition after reports similar to these, this might be in the late stages of being finalized with both teams dotting their i’s and crossing their t’s.

Should Utah even trade for Conley this late in his career? Our own Jason Walker went into that.
