Listen: Mike Conley, Donovan Ingles, Utah discussed on Real_Sports: A Snapchat Sports Pod
"Season. I let's talk Mike Conley trade. Conley was swapped for some combination of Jae Crowder. Grayson Allen, Ella. Well, people love grace in. No. By Korver, and the twenty third picking then, like protected one, the next year thoughts on dots on the I think it's great for both teams. Mike Conley paranoid up with Donovan. Mitchell in Rudy go bear in Utah. And I think that team can shock a lot of people I would like to see them dish away that sixteen million dollars Derrick favors is getting paid this year and go out and maybe get another free agent. We know Rubio won't be back. But Conley and go bear are two of the most elite defenders at their position. Quin Snyder was coach of the year candidate two years ago who prides himself on their defense. You got commie with the Golic, joing, those people always are talking about how all Mike Conley as a bad contract that was years ago. The guys thirty one just came off averaging around. I think it was twenty one points per game in probably his best year in his career who still can play at an elite level. And it's just. Like I said before putting him in the right situations. And I think that you put them in Utah. He's got another score that he could defer to. He's got the big men download that it can run a pick and roll with, and they're going to be a lot of fun to watch, especially with Ingles on the perimeter now in regards to Memphis, I mean, they're doing everything they can to stock up for the future. They're gonna take jaw. They've got Jaren Jackson down there who's a great young player and they're just stocking up on more picks. We'll see what they do with this pick that they just got from Utah. I think it was in the twenty s twenty third twenty third. So, yeah, they're doing all the right things for a young team just trying to build from the ground up. I mean jaws gotta be there. One guy, and now they just got to go and build around him. It's going to be hard to attract free agents to Memphis, Tennessee barbecue food aside. But I, I love this deal for both. We've heard about calmly rumor to Utah since the trade deadline last year. Here. And I I've been a big fan of Mike Conley as entire career. He made some noise in the playoffs with that grit and grind team in Zach Randolph Tony Allen, and Marcus all, but we all know that team was never winning anything. And I think he's going to a good Sishu situation. I'm excited form. I think that people are underrating this move. He's a huge pickup like people like Ricky Rubio, but we've talked about this all the time. And if you can't score in the league, you're kind of one dimensional, but they're, they're starting five is gonna limit teams. Like it's just going to be a disgusting. Starting five defensively between Conley Donovan Ingles favors and go bear, and then they have town on the bench ROY. So Neal's a salad player XM's the salad player and they sell space designed shooters like someone like Seth curry someone like mirror to. So in a down year in the west like we've talked about with the warriors, and a lot of pretenders out there do they make a big move at the deadline. Really, like swap. Favors for superstar or swap Ingles. For superstar the jazz in what in what universe is Derrick favors getting swamped for superstar favors. You send picks away a pick dangers got, for example, and XM, who was a top, you know lottery, pick you sent like there's we've seen trades that don't make sense before for. Yeah. You're talking about one of them right now. I'm not talking about like a superstar like top of the line. But like, I don't know. I'll come up with someone for you. It just would not shock me if the jazz, go far they've owned the thunder and stuff. So I think it's a good move for the jazz for the pelicans. They're kind of in no-man's on the grizzlies the grizzlies sigh. Yes, the grizzlies there, no-man's-land jam rant will be great Jaren Jackson shows promise, but you just need players. And they've just had a tough run since since there are strong days with Gonzales Zeba.."
