Mike Conley, Memphis Grizzlies Agree To Largest Contract In NBA History

Share

The Memphis Grizzlies have been widely expected to retain Mike Conley as a free agent this summer, despite interest from other teams for months. One of the only potential holdups involved what kind of money they were willing to offer Conley. Reports surfaced last week that Conley's decision could come down to whether Memphis was willing to offer him the five-year max.

Just hours after agreeing with Chandler Parsons on a max contract, the Grizzlies proved to indeed be all in on retaining their playmaker:

That $153 million will be the largest contract in the history of the NBA. That's obviously a lot for a player who has never been the best player, or even top three, at his position.

Yet, it makes a lot of sense.

Conley, 28, is one of the most underrated players in the entire Association.

For Conley, whose name has become nearly synonymous in basketball circles over the years with the term "underrated", he can look at his rich new contract and be proud that he has finally shed that label.
