MIKE CONLEY JR. (UTA)
#11•M. CONLEY JR.
PG • 6’1, 175 lbs; 13th year, Ohio State
NBA ROLE: (GO-TO) TWO-WAY PG
‘Money’ Mike Conley is probably the best current player to never make the All-Star team; a Top DOG (who's been around the block), Conley is excellent at initiating action – one of the savviest playmakers around; scientific, lefty J from downtown – drops hands when he’s feeling it – jumper is complemented by off-hand floaters: Conley’s righty* tear drop is rarely off the mark; perfect craftsmanship running the PnR, great decision-making – swerves back and forth before finding an opening, keeps the ball low; ‘fake-out’ PG: super crafty ball-handler, heavy feints; makes a lot of circus shots; very good defender, can take opposing PGs out of the game; pretty complete point guard, though injury prone; traded to Jazz (Summer ‘19) – terrific backcourt combo w/ Donovan Mitchell – can Mike help Utah contend?
*not many PGs have mastered off-hand floaters
