Sometimes when a team makes a trade, it’s up in the air as to what will happen with the locker room chemistry. This isn’t one of those times when it comes to new Utah Jazz point guard Mike Conley. The Utah Jazz have to be excited about the player they have joining their squad. Mike Conley won both the Twyman Stokes Teammate of the Year Award and Sportsmanship award.
Fun fact: Mike Conley has never been issued a technical foul.
