Mike Conley To Reportedly Stay In Utah On 3-Year, $60 Million Deal

With Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell, the Utah Jazz have a solid star combo.

After making some waves early on, the Jazz brought in veteran point guard Mike Conley as support, and he quickly proved to be a valuable member of the organization.

And now, as he faces free agency, the Jazz are reportedly set on bringing him back on a new multi-year deal.

Mike Conley is expected to return to the Utah Jazz on a three-year, $60 million contract, a league source tells @MavericksSI. The first-time All-Star is coming off a season featuring averages of 16.2 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 6.0 assists.

Last season, the Jazz finished with a 52-20 record, the best in the NBA. And while optimism remained high that they could make some noise in the postseason, they weren't able to advance past the second round.

Questions about the future have surfaced over the following weeks, mostly regarding what kind of changes the team might make in light of their most recent playoff failure.

Evidently, Utah seems to be set on just running things back. With both Mitchell and Gobert locked in, bringing back Conley might not be a bad move at all.

As a solid two-way guard with plenty of experience, he could be worth bringing back.

But unless the Jazz make some kind of change, they might find themselves flirting with another early playoff exit next season.
