SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Utah Jazz made it official that they have acquired guard Mike Conley Jr. from the Memphis Grizzlies in exchange for guard Grayson Allen, forward Jae Crowder, guard/forward Kyle Korver and future draft picks.

The trade is pending the outcome of physicals.

“Mike Conley had a tremendous impact in Memphis and always impressed us with his skills on the court, passion for doing good in the community and reputation as a great teammate,” said Jazz Executive Vice President of Basketball Operations Dennis Lindsey. “We share that same commitment to excellence and are excited to welcome Mike and his family to the Jazz, Salt Lake City and Utah. Mike brings outstanding qualities to our organization and we look forward to working together toward our collective goals.”

Reports surfaced on June 19 about the trade and it became official when the new league year began on July 6.

Conley finished the 2018-19 season averaging a career-high 21.1 points, along with 6.4 assists, 3.4 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game.

The 12-year NBA veteran will wear No. 10 for the Jazz.

Conley earned his third NBA Sportsmanship Award at the NBA Awards show on June 24, previously winning the award in 2014 and 2016.

He spent his entire career with the Grizzlies after getting selected as the fourth overall pick in the 2007 NBA Draft.
