Memphis GrizzliesA guardA Mike ConleyA now has a fully guaranteed contract after successfully appearing in 55 games for the team this season.

The $34.5M salary in 2020-21 for Memphis point guard Mike Conley is now guaranteed. Signed to a $152.6M contract in 2016, Conley had to appear in 55 games in either the 2018-19 or 2019-20 season for his protection to increase from $22.4M to $34.5M.

Mike Conley signed a five-year, $152 million contract with the Grizzlies in 2016, but one of the terms that both sides had agreed to was for the 12 year-veteran to appear in at least 55 games either this year or the next. One of the reasons behind such condition was Conleya€™s history of injuries.

Similar contracts have been handed out by other teams to several players recently. The most notable one is theA Philadelphia 76ersa€™ contact extension for All-Star centerA Joel Embiid, who had to appear in a specific number of games as well in order for it to be fully guaranteed.
