Mike Conley Jr. is ready for the next chapter of his career.
The 31-year-old guard spent his first 12 NBA seasons with the Grizzlies but was sent to the Jazz this summer in exchange for Jae Crowder, Kyle Korver, Grayson Allen and two first-round picks. Conley discussed the trade during a recent interview with USA Today’s HoopsHype.
“It’s still an adjustment,” Conley said. “Even just hearing people call my name out and saying ‘Mike Conley of the Utah Jazz,’ it doesn’t even equate yet. I’m still trying to get used to that and waiting for it to become normal. It’s a new beginning, a new journey, a new challenge and I love that.
“You don’t get blessed with opportunities like this very often. I feel like I’m in a blessed situation to be part of this organization and hopefully do something special while I’m there.”
