Dallas Mavericks to Meet With Mike Conley
The Dallas Mavericks have been focusing in on free agency and have been granted a meeting with Memphis Grizzlies star point guard, Mike Conley.
The Dallas Mavericks announced just last week that they are focusing their free agency attention on two players in particular, Mike Conley from Memphis and Hassan Whiteside from Miami. With big gaps at the point guard and center spots from last year’s roster, these are not surprising targets.
Just a few days ago, Hassan Whiteside announced that not only will he be meeting with the Dallas Mavericks early on July 1st, but that he intends to make a decision on his end destination that same day. This could mean good things for Dallas as not many teams will be meeting with him.
That doesn’t mean that he is a sure thing but it should be taken as a good sign though. Next up, our focus turns to Mike Conley. News broke earlier today (via Mike Fisher) that Conley has granted the Dallas Mavericks a meeting on July 1st.
This is another bit of good news for the Mavericks who now have a legitimate shot at getting Mike Conley. Although this does not guarantee anything at all and should probably still be considered a bit of a longshot (Conley has played his whole career in Memphis), it still can be a good sign.
Mike Conley is considered the best point guard in free agency this year and for good reason. He has spent all 9 of his seasons with the Grizzlies and has career averages of 13.6 points per game, 5.6 assists per game, and 1.5 steals per game.
These are great averages and would improve the team immensely. It remains to be seen how good our chances are of getting him this summer.
