This isn't the first time that Conley's name has come up in trade talks. If the Grizzlies are content with building around Morant and 2018 NBA Draft lottery pick Jaren Jackson Jr. But they were knocked out quickly, losing in the first round to the Rockets in just five games. Zach Randolph and Tony Allen left in 2017 as free agents, and Memphis traded Marc Gasol to Toronto in February, splitting up a duo that had been the NBA's longest-tenured teammates.

Kyle Korver, who was also involved in the reported deal, will likely either retire or agree to a buyout with Memphis prior to the regular season.

The move elevates the Jazz in a now wide-open Western Conference, though it comes with the three years and $97 million still owed Conley.

The Utah Jazz have appeared to make their first move of the National Basketball Association offseason.

The Heat have been linked to Conley for most of the offseason, so it is no surprise to see that Miami actually discussed a deal with Memphis. Conley signed a max contract in July 2016 with $67 million more due over the next two seasons.

The All-Star sharpshooter averaged 8.6 points in 58 regular-season and playoff games off the bench for the Jazz after being traded by the Cavs during the season. And at 31-years-old, he's got plenty of tread in the tires to solidify Utah's point guard position. Memphis hired its new coach, Taylor Jenkins, last week with what management called a "significant" and "long-term commitment".
