NBA.com’s David Aldridge reported on Thursday that the Grizzlies are “very confident” they will retain unrestricted free agent Mike Conley.
Reports like these generally don’t come out unless the team and the reporter are confident because nobody likes looking silly. If this starts to gain momentum like it probably will, then look for the next dominoes to fall in a place like Dallas where Conley was being heavily pursued. As for Grizzlies fans, they have to be thrilled with this type of report as they can lock up a position of need and they no longer have to go through a full rebuild. To be clear this isn’t a done deal.
