Former Ohio State point guard Mike Conley, Jr. has agreed to a new three-year contract with the Utah Jazz according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Conley has already had a long — and if we’re being honest — a very underrated NBA career. It all started out with Conley being drafted as the fourth overall pick by the Memphis Grizzlies in the 2007 NBA draft. He spent the first 12-years of his career in Memphis before being traded to the Utah Jazz after the 2018-2019 season where he has been for the last two campaigns.

For his career, Conley has averaged 14.9 points, 5.7 assists, and 3.0 rebounds, and 1.4 steals in 32.2 minutes of play.

Now, it appears as though Conley will be able to potentially finish out his career in Utah where he made his first All-Star appearance of his 14- year career during the 2021 season.

The deal is reported to be for three years, and according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, worth $72.5 million. Congrats to Conley, our favorite H-O-R-S-E champion, on getting paid at the tail end of his career.
