You don't rock the boat and try to lowball a huge difference maker on your team. Who cares that it's maybe 5 million more per year than we'd prefer. It's not like we could spend that 5 million.


That's the thing, it's not like the Jazz can spend that money on another player.......

I don't think Conley is a huge difference maker. We've achieved the same results without him, and are in the process of ridding the team of other players and assets just so we could retain him, thus ensuring we won't get better anyway. And he's likely not going to improve at his age, but regress.

Same here, 25 mln per year for old injury prone pg, i can bet that we will have to throw another 1rd pick to unload conley with his contract in near future

I agree with the Jazz interest in re-signing Conley, while appreciating the fact that Conley is the only high level free agent that the team is eligible to spend serious money on, but I don't understand the Jazz appearing to bid against themselves to retain him, and in addition, paying him as if there aren't the red flags of age, missed games and hamstring issues. Perhaps the Jazz have intel that another team is interested in presenting Conley a generous offer? Perhaps the medical staff decided that the hamstring problems can be addressed over the offseason?

We need Conley to come back with a strong season like fellow veteran CP3 just put in. And we still need to get a lengthy, defensive minded, switchable three and D wing. Go Jazz!

Jazz broke regular season records and were the #1 seed without Conley? Hmmm must've missed that season.. unless we're going back to 1998.. where our draft pick wasn't even born yet..

The regular season is meaningless, as the Jazz found out in the playoffs once again. They've been stuck in 1st-2nd round territory for a very long time now, and Conley did not change that.

Injuries suck..ask the nets. He got hurt at the wrong time. As did Mitchell. The fact we have a guy in Butler who can possibly help keep us afloat in games Mike misses is huge. Butler learning from Mike? That's huge. You bring back Mike period. You contend

Gobert is more the playoff dud than Conley, but he has little trade value. Conley gives the Jazz another playmaker and a blistering 41% three point shooter. Is he undersized, yes, but not like they could find a player that checks more boxes in FA. They are happy to be in that 5-10% range to win a chip the next 3 years, maybe lightning will strike.

Gobert isn't a playoff dud. Missing Conley made Gobert less impactful on offense and no one could guard the perimeter to save their life.

3 years, $72.5m. A touch less than the earlier reported $75m. I was hoping year 3 would be a team option, but I haven't seen anything about options so far.

Way less than Lowry's 3 year $90m. Sheesh! He's 35 years old!
