Spurs To Pursue Mike Conley

The Spurs will try to attract soon-to-be free agent Mike Conley this summer, as Marc Stein of hears (Twitter link). San Antonio would have to clear salary to create enough room for a max offer worth an estimated $26MM for next season. Grizzlies GM Chris Wallace has pledged to re-sign the point guard, but Conley isn’t making any promises until he gets a sense of the direction the Memphis franchise will take in the offseason ahead.

Conley is expected to be the most sought-after point guard on the free agent market this summer, with the Knicks, Nets, Pacers and others believed to be interested. He has averaged 13.6 points and 5.6 assists in nine years with the Grizzlies and has a chance to more than double the $9,588,426 salary he earned this season. 

Tony Parker, the Spurs’ current starting point guard, will turn 34 next week. He has two seasons and nearly $29.9MM left on his contract. Parker’s scoring average dipped to 11.9 points per game this season, the lowest since his rookie year, and his playing time fell to 27.5 minutes per night.

It’s conceivable that the Spurs will give Conley a chance to team with a center named Gasol just as the Grizzlies have done. Marc Gasol recently suggested brother Pau Gasol should sign with the Spurs, an idea Pau Gasol finds intriguing.

  2. They are gonna be a lot different next season with all these rumors flying around. Wonder how that’s gonna affect their team chemistry that they’re famous for.

      That’s a good point. Also do they ship out Parker if they get Conley? Parker would be a nice fit for the Mavs if they can convince the Spurs to trade him within the state.

      • Arthur Hill

        Maybe Dallas would be interested if they don’t keep Deron Williams, but Parker’s age and contract are going to scare off a lot of teams. Two years and nearly $30MM is a lot to commit to a 34-eyar-old point guard.

  3. What? Conley can get 26M? If someone offers him that the GM should just start placing his items in a box.

    Even though I know they won’t, it’d be wise to trade Parker for whatever they can get to create cap space for depth, this is if they can sign Conley. Then use that space gained from Parker to build depth on the bench because they have a core with Leonard and Aldridge if they can bring in a somewhat young PG. Like it or not, San Antonio would’ve been out of the playoffs ALOT sooner had it not been for Aldridge going off throughout most of the playoffs
