The San Antonio Spurs played their worst basketball at the worst possible time, getting run out of the building in the first half of Game 6 against the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday night. By the time they found their rhythm in the fourth quarter it was too late, and now they'll be watching the remainder of the postseason with the rest of us.
The second half seemed like a formality with the huge hole the Spurs had dug for themselves, so a number of media members started looking ahead to the offseason for San Antonio. On top of the question of whether or not franchise icon Tim Duncan will retire, speculation is beginning to build regarding the team's plans in free agency.
Conley was out for Memphis' first round series with the Spurs due to tendinitis in his left Achilles, which also kept him off the floor for the final 20 games of the regular season.
The Grizzlies hope to keep Conley, but he's made it clear that unless they make some significant roster moves this offseason, he'll likely walk.
Conley's never been selected as an All-Star but his talent level isn't far off, which is why so many teams will try to court him should he hit the open market. If he decides to leave Memphis, he'll finish as the Grizzlies organization's all-time leader in assists with 3,578, steals with 963, and total games played with 637.
