Veteran floor general Mike Conley Jr. will be one of the more intriguing options when the free agency frenzy starts in the NBA.
But while his stint with the Utah Jazz has been a little pedestrian, Conley’s star teammate Donovan Mitchell believes the steady PG will return to Salt Lake and sign an extension. Mitchell has plenty of reasons to believe so, but there’s one main factor that he feels could swing things in favor of the Jazz: doTerra.
Yep, the Utah-based essential oils company. Conley posted an Instagram video of him promoting doTerra as his go-to self-care product. Mitchell quickly grabbed the opportunity to post a comment to announce to the whole world that Conley will ended re-sign with the Jazz (via Deseret).
“Doterra headquarters in Utah. Mike played for Utah. According to the calculations, MIKE TO THE JAZZ CONFIRMED.”
It’s worth noting that Mitchell signed an endorsement deal with the company in 2019, so he knows stuff. At least about essential oils.
The 33-year-old Conley has been derailed by injuries in his first two seasons with the Jazz. He, however, had a solid second stint last season, making it to his first-ever NBA All-Star Game. He has always been one of the NBA’s good guys as well, and his contributions to the community are understated. So for sure, Jazz fans would love to have him back.
The Jazz once again fell short in the NBA Playoffs, but retaining their core, including Mike Conley Jr. and Donovan Mitchell, is surely, um, essential.
