The Memphis Grizzlies have traded Mike Conley Jr. to the Utah Jazz for Kyle Korver, Jae Crowder, Grayson Allen, the No. 23 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft and a 2020 protected first round pick, The Athletic's Shams Charania and ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports.

Conley Jr. gives Utah a much-needed scorer and floor general at point guard without allowing their stout defence to take a hit.
The Grizzlies, meanwhile, add two more draft picks to build around their young talent, such as last year's top-five pick Jaren Jackson Jr. and Ja Morant, who Memphis is expected to select with the No. 2 pick in this year's NBA Draft, as well as a few role players to fill out their roster.
Wojnarowski added that the trade will go through on July 6.
