There could be a race between Minnesota and the Clippers over the signing of Conley.

‘The Athletic’ reported on the 18th (Korean time) about Utah Jazz guard Mike Conley.

The Clippers and Minnesota are teams that are unexpectedly struggling in the Western Conference. Before the start of the season, the two teams were mentioned as the strongest in the conference, and the Clippers were often mentioned as favorites to win.

Also, the Clippers and Minnesota are also teams struggling with the same position. Both of them are suffering from a headache because of the point guard position.

The Clippers have a lot of regret at the point guard position compared to the flashy swingman line. Reggie Jackson started out as the starting pitcher, but as his sluggish performance continued, his position declined. John Wall, whose performance has been hampered by numerous injuries, is also unsatisfactory. Terrence Man is stepping up as the starting guard, but it’s hard to see it as a long-term solution. 바카라사이트

In the case of Minnesota, D’Angelo Russell is playing better than at the beginning of the season, but there are still deficiencies. In addition, Russell, an expiring resource, is highly likely to leave as a free agent at the end of the season without any remuneration in return. Since the salary cap is already tight, Minnesota is difficult to recruit substitutes if Russell leaves. 

The strongest link between the two teams, who are dreaming of strengthening their guards, is veteran Mike Conley. Conley, who is averaging 7.5 assists, is a field commander who has come down from his prime, but his experience and stability make him a useful addition to the team.

Utah, who got a lot of draft picks by sending Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell, is very likely to go on a rebuilding route. Rumors are circulating that Conley, Jordan Clarkson, and Jared Vanderbilt will leave the team at this deadline.

According to The Athletic, Minnesota and the Clippers are competing for Conley. The Athletic reported that the Los Angeles Clippers and Minnesota Timberwolves were interested in a trade for Mike Conley.

The Athletic also said, “Minnesota is looking at a trade for D’Angelo Russell, who is in the final year of his contract, and is prioritizing recruiting a point guard who can lead the team.”

In addition to Conley, Minnesota is also linked with Miami veteran guard Kyle Lowry. What will Minnesota and Clippers do in the trade market?
