The Memphis Grizzlies have traded Mike Conley to the Utah Jazz for Grayson Allen, Kyle Korver and Jae Crowder, the 23rd pick in the 2019 Draft and a future first-round pick, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The protected 2020 first-round pick will be sent to the Grizzlies. That pick will convey as a late-lottery pick in 2020 or 2021, or become a lightly-protected pick from 2022-24. The deal is expected to be completed on July 6.

This move also affects Ricky Rubio’s situation who is set to become an unrestricted free agent. The Jazz didn’t make him a priority which has been confirmed with the arrival of Conley and Rubio will likely search for a new team. The Indiana Pacers have shown interest and made the 28-year-old Spanish guard their top target.

Ricky Rubio reacted moments after the report with a message on his Twitter: “… it’s time to just be happy. Being angry, sad and overthinking isn’t worth it anymore. Just let things flow. Be positive”, he wrote.
