Quin Snyder on Mike Conley: Saying he’s a smart player sells him short

Conley owns career-averages of 14.9 points, 5.7 assist and 1.5 steals

Utah Jazz coach Quin Snyder talks with the Salt Lake tribune about his new playmaker, Mike Conley:

“It’s unusual that you trust a player so quickly, but he’s earned that. He’s got a presence. And that manifests itself in taking big shots, making two free throws at the end of practice so his teammates don’t have to run, defensively. Saying he’s a smart player sells him short. Being smart is not just understanding coverages and things like that, it’s understanding people, his teammates, knowing what guys need”

Conley owns career-averages of 14.9 points, 5.7 assist and 1.5 steals over 12 seasons with the Memphis Grizzlies
