Veteran guard Mike Conley agrees to two-year extension with Timberwolves

As the Minnesota Timberwolves push toward securing the top seed in the Western Conference standings, the franchise just stabilized its backcourt.

Veteran point guard Mike Conley Jr. has agreed to a two-year, $21 million contract extension. He has been a key piece in helping the Timberwolves maintain one of the league’s best records.

Before the extension, Conley was in the final year of his three-year, $68 million deal. He was set to hit the free-agent market, but the new deal keeps him in tow for the foreseeable future.

He isn’t the player he once was. Although, Conley remains a highly dependable backcourt player. He averages 10.6 points, 6.4 assists, and 1.3 steals while shooting 44.4 percent from the floor. Conley also has a career-high 44.2 percent from beyond the arc.

The 36-year-old has been a huge factor with his 3-point shooting, which ranks him among the best percentage from deep this season.

Conley’s new contract could likely be his last as he’s inching toward the end of his career. Throughout much of his playing days, he’s been undervalued and overlooked. However, he has provided teams with consistent scoring, 3-point shooting, and a defensive presence.

The Timberwolves have largely been led by the stellar play of All-Stars Anthony Edwards and Karl-Anthony Towns, but Conley has served as a key piece of the supporting cast.

His will play a significant role in the playoffs as his vast postseason experience will be leaned upon. Conley has played in 78 playoff games, where he’s averaged 15.8 points and 6.5 assists while shooting 41.7 percent from the floor.
