Default Speculation! Would Conley Fit Raps?

ESPN's Ryan Corazza reports that the Grizzlies still are not enamored by Conley's game, although his post allstar statistics were very encouraging;

14.7PPG/46%FG/5.8A/1.7STL

Considering Conley's youth, and superior speed he could complement our core of high flying wings (Weems/Dero)?

Chris Wallace isn't the swiftest of Managers, and Jose's shooting would complement a Gay/Mayo/Randolph/Gasol offensive machine better than Conley's. Plus Gasol and Jose are probably palls.

Just wondering if the Raps had something on the table, if ya'll would consider.

yes, Conley would fit i well. But there would definately be something between he and Jack if Conley outperformed Jack and took a staqrting job from him.

But a deal around Jose(who Memphis liked a while back) and Conley would be ideal.

i haven;t seen him play much but he's a young cat that looks pretty decent on paper. Plus he hasn;t reached his full potential at that age i don;t think

4.9Million this year(Qualifying offer = 6.4Million in 2011).

I wouldn't mind adding the ex-Buckeye to the Raptors. Young and would fit in with the other young guys. Seems like Memphis has been looking to trade him for some time as his name has been in many rumors.

Because he sucks. Conley hasn't got any better throughout his career, hes still shit. Calderon and Jack are better than Conley

Yes. I'm a big Conley fan and I'd argue he's a better defender than either of our current PGs.

Mike Conley is a weak defender, what does he do that sets him apart from Jack...defensive-wise.

wait a second, this kid is 22 and is entering his 4th season


GP GS↓ MPG↓ FG%↓ 3P%↓ FT%↓ RPG↓ APG↓ SPG↓ BPG PPG↓
53 46 26.1 .428 .330 .732 2.6 4.2 .8 .0 9.4
82 61 30.6 .442 .406 .817 3.4 4.3 1.1 .1 10.9
80 80 32.1 .445 .387 .743 2.4 5.3 1.36 .15 12.0

wtf are you talking about?

oj mayonaise, rudy gay, marc gasol, and zach randolph are all options ahead of conley, so how can u expect him to do any better, 12 pts 5 assists 2 boards and 1.36 steals a game for being the 5th option is pretty awesome if u ask me and he would be averaging more than 5 dimes if mayo wasn't handling the ball as much as he does

Conley's quicker and forces more turnovers.

JJ is more efficient on offense.

JJ is more than adequate as a starting point guard. Conley is about as good (depending on how you value offense/defense) with more potential for improvement, but I wouldn't lose any sleep over it. The Raptors have more pressing needs at the moment.

Corrected my earlier post "Rudy/Gay" I meant "Gay/Mayo".

But I would take Conley + Filler for Calderon based on Conley's quicks. Either way, this years draft is full of premier PG prospects with significantly higher ceilings than Conley thus I'd view Conley as a young addition at a position that is currently filled only with vets, but I wouldn't see him as a long term solution.
