Utah’s Mike Conley invited to 1st NBA All-Star Game; will be in 3-point contest



(UPDATE 6:32 p.m.) — Utah Jazz guard Mike Conley will play in his first NBA All-Star game, the league announced Friday. He will be the third Jazz player selected in this year’s All-Star event, joining Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell. He will be on Team Durant.

In his second season with the Jazz, Conley is averaging 16 points and nearly six assists per game, helping lead the Jazz to the NBA’s best record so far.

Conley will replace Suns guard Devin Booker, who was selected to replace an injured Anthony Davis but will have to miss the game due to a left knee sprain, according to the NBA.

In addition to playing in the All-Star game, Conley will replace Booker in the league’s three-point contest alongside Mitchell.

It will be just the second time in franchise history the Jazz are represented by three players. Jazz head coach Quin Snyder will also participate in the All-Star game as the coach of Team Lebron.

The All-Star game will take place Sunday, March 7.
