Mike ConleySummary:

  • Point guard Mike Conley has agreed to extend his contract with the Minnesota Timberwolves for two more years.
  • The player and the professional basketball team have inked the new deal worth around $21 million.
  • The contract will be valid through Conley’s 19th season in the National Basketball Association.

According to an anonymous source who spoke to the AP, Minnesota Timberwolves point guard Mike Conley has agreed to spend two more years with the Minneapolis-based NBA team in Minnesota.

The deal was signed for an amount that was approximated to $21 million. The 36-year-old player is currently in his first full season with the team that he joined one year ago as a result of a trade with Utah.

The Timberwolves, All-In Chasing a Title

Conley is currently making a little over $24 million on a deal that was about to expire in the summer.

The new agreement comes to once again prove the club’s serious intentions to grab a title using the current team, no matter how robust the tax hit might be.

The reasons behind The Wolves’ decision to hold on to the talented point guard are easy to understand. The four-time NBA Sportsmanship Award winner has brought his indisputable dose of maturity and leadership to coach Chris Finch and the staff.

His ninth league ranking and career-best 44.2% shooting from 3-point range also helped him prolong his stay with the club.

Conley also boasts the second-best assist-to-turnover ratio in the NBA at 6.08.

The freshly updated contract that would last through the player’s 19th season in the NBA has not been finalized yet.

For the moment, the league is on a brief hiatus for the All-Star break.

50 of 57 Games Played

Conley managed to stay healthy and play 50 out of 57 games for the Western Conference-leading Wolves.

Conley, whose team will make a comeback this Friday when they will host Milwaukee, described his debut with the Wolves as “coming in here almost deer in the headlights”, trying to figure things out, keep up with the quick action and mesh with everybody’s games.

I don’t know how long I’m going to play, so every time I go out I’ve got to play as hard as I can, play as good as I can, give everything I’ve got, and hopefully it’s enough to win

Now, the point guard explains things have changed and he understands everybody on the team.
