The Latest Grizzlies Rumors On Targeting Chandler Parsons & Mike Conley Re-Signing

The Memphis Grizzlies fought off a rash of injuries to hold on to a playoff berth last season, but now face a crucial offseason. Their top priority is to re-sign point guard Mike Conley, but they're also looking to improve their roster to help them return to being a contender in the Western Conference. Here's all the latest Grizzlies news and rumors you need to know:

Conley to re-sign with Memphis?
Both the Spurs and Mavs have shown serious interest in signing Conley in free agency, but their efforts may be for naught. According to Basketball Insiders, Conley is expected to re-sign with Memphis on Friday:

The belief around the Grizzlies is that Mike will re-sign on the maximum offer they’ll present him on July 1. However, sources close to Conley say that getting his signature will require the team to be aggressive in adding talent to the roster. It’s one of the key reasons the Grizzlies passed on their team option on Lance Stephenson.

Memphis has kept their cards close to the vest about who else they are targeting while being "aggressive" in free agency, but there is one name that has been floated out there:

Grizzlies targeting Parsons?
While the Dallas Mavericks have their sights set on signing both Hassan Whiteside and Conley, they will let Chandler Parsons pursue other opportunities as a free agent as they will not give him the max contract he is seeking. According to Geoff Calkins of the Memphis Commercial Appeal, the Grizzlies are a team that could offer Parsons that max he is looking for.

Who else might they target? Everyone has suggested Nic Batum. I wouldn’t be surprised if they try and throw a max deal at Chandler Parsons. 

Knee injuries have plagued Parsons each of the past two years, cutting short both of his seasons with the Mavs. He averaged 13.7 points and 4.8 rebounds per game last season.
