Anthony Davis was the first National Basketball Association trade domino to fall.

Leading up to the 2019 NBA Draft on Thursday, Utah is back in trade rumors surrounding a familiar face once again.

The Miami Heat and Memphis Grizzlies held talks about a trade involving point guard Mike Conley Jr., but the talks have stalled and could pick up at a later date according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.

The Ringer's Kevin O'Connor also recently reported that the Jazz are among the teams expected to pursue Conley.

The Grizz are seemingly locked in on drafting Murray State point guard Ja Morant with the second overall pick in the 2019 NBA Draft on June 20, which will likely signal the end of Conley's tenure in Memphis. Rubio is set to enter free agency after his contract expired following the 2018-19 campaign. If the Jazz are to acquire him, they'll need to get creative. From your perspective, what would Conley do for Utah next season on the court?

As a comparison, the manufacturer shipped 206 million units past year , out of which about 50% were meant to be sold overseas . Huawei strongly denies any links to China's government and says the United States has never provided proof of its accusations.

The Jazz have $91 million in guaranteed money on their books for next season, according to Basketball Insiders, and can knock that down further by cutting ties with any combination of their five non-guaranteed contracts.

While Davis was, undoubtedly, the biggest name on the trade market, he's not alone in terms of players likely to be dealt this summer that can significantly impact next year's playoff race.

When it comes to who could be on the way out of Salt Lake City in a potential trade for Conley, you'd imagine that talks would be centered around forward Derrick Favors.

"I'll play anywhere", Conley told reporters.
