Report: Mike Conley Won’t Sign Extension with Grizzlies


Whether he’s decided to be on himself, or still miffed about a low ball offer, it appears Grizzlies point guard will wait, and let the market dictate his next contract.

With Marc Gasol being the Grizzlies top priority, they’d love to get another discount extension done with Conley as well.

According to Marc Stein, it won’t happen.

The Grizzlies would love to.

Sources say, furthermore, that they’ve tried to engage Conley in extension talks. More than once.

But the five-year, $40 million pact they signed Conley to in 2010 — openly second-guessed all over the NBA map at the time — proved to be too shrewd. So the consensus starting point guard on the league’s All-Underrated Team simply can’t sign an extension, working from the figures on his current deal, that could come close to the sort of offers he’s likely to attract as a 2016 free agent at the age of 28.

Conley is sure to command more than the $9 million a season he’s making now, if he simply waits until next summer.
