ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski has more details on the pick.
The Jazz will send a protected 2020 first-round pick to the Grizzlies, league sources tell ESPN. That pick will convey as a late-lottery pick in 2020 or 2021, or become a lightly-protected pick from 2022-'24. Deal complete on July 6. https://t.co/UY47lnIOWU

Conley, 31, averaged 21.1 points and 6.4 points per game last season. The scoring output was a career high. The Grizzlies have entered rebuilding mode after trading Marc Gasol to the Toronto Raptors last year, so it was only a matter of time before they parted ways with Conley.
