The Memphis Grizzlies aren’t just trying to fend off the Dallas Mavericks’ pursuit of marquee free agent Mike Conley.
The Grizzlies, according to league sources, also have interest in Mavericks free-agent swingman Chandler Parsons, who is widely expected to leave Dallas this summer in free agency, given the team’s focus on other free-agent targets.
ESPN reported last week that Conley and Miami Heat free-agent center Hassan Whiteside are Dallas’ top two free-agent targets. But Grizzlies officials, sources say, remain confident about their chances of retaining Conley and have Parsons high on the list of wing players they want to sign with the rest of their salary-cap space.
