According to NBA insider, Shams Charania the Utah Jazz are the front runners to land Mike Conley.
In his most recent article in the Athletic Shams addresses Conley and the Utah Jazz. This is what he says:

We all know the Jazz had interest in Conley at the trade deadline. It did not get done. Maybe the asking price was too high, maybe Memphis did not want to trade both Conley and Marc Gasol. There are lots of rumors and speculation as to why it did not happen according to different sources.
From Tony Jones!
So now we know Favors is currently not part of the deal. That is huge!
How does this make you feel? Is this Jazz admitting that they are not confident in their free agency options? What would this trade even look like? Is Conley the veteran point guard that will lead us into contention?
