Mike Conley reportedly traded from Grizzlies to Jazz

Mike Conley reportedly traded from Grizzlies to Jazz

Here's a look into three possible trade packages that could be favorable for the Chicago Bulls to bring Mike Conley in from the Memphis Grizzlies.

Conley had been with the Grizzlies since being drafted with the fourth overall pick in the 2007 NBA Draft.

Shams Charania of The Athletic first reported the trade, and David Aldridge added that Utah is packaging the No. 23 pick in Thursday's draft with a protected first-rounder in the deal. During his tenure in Memphis, he led the franchise to its greatest period of success, resulting in seven consecutive playoff appearances from 2011 until 2017 along with a Western Conference finals appearance during the 2012-13 season. "Excited to give all I have to The Jazz ...!"

The 12-year veteran will join a Utah Jazz team that will try to compete for a title next season.

Another remarked: "Google Calendar is down and I have no idea what I'm supposed to do 30 minutes from now". As of 10:30 a.m. (ET), almost 4,400 reports had been submitted from users affected by the outage.

The Western Conference arms race is heating up ahead of the National Basketball Association draft and free agency period with the Utah Jazz making a move to improve their roster on Wednesday.

The trade can not be completed until the new league year starts on July 6. No player they could've picked up in the draft would have done as much for them as Conley could.

Conley will replace point guard Ricky Rubio (who held down the position for the past two seasons) and will pair with budding star guard Donovan Mitchell in the Jazz backcourt. He was just off his career highs with 6.4 assists per game and averaged 1.3 steals per game.

The Grizzlies are busy rebuilding after drafting Jaren Jackson Jr. with the fourth overall pick past year, and they hold the No. 2 pick overall for Thursday night's draft.
