In May of this year, the San Antonio Spurs looked like they were going to make a run for unrestricted free agent Mike Conley; however, that is now questioned due to the fact that ESPN's Marc Stein reported that the interest the team has is “overstated.”

On the other hand, he had both the Spurs and the Dallas Mavericks high on his wish list, but how the Spurs’ roster is set up has lessened the appeal to him. One of those points of interests is the current starting point guard, Tony Parker.

In most cases, Conley would start over the 15-year veteran Parker, but in the Spurs' system, they'd probably get close to equal playing time. Parker proved he could still preform efficiently by averaging 11.9 points, 5.3 assists, 2.4 rebounds with 49.3% shooting as the starting point guard last season.

Conley has played for the Memphis Grizzlies for his whole 9-year career after being drafted 4th overall in 2007. He averaged 15.3 points, 6.1 assists, and 2.9 rebounds in 56 games this season, helping them reach the 7th seed in the Western Conference with a record of 42-40. The Spurs swept the Grizzlies this year in the playoffs, who were without Conley after he injured his left Achilles with about 20 games left.
