Scott: 'It's about time' Grizzlies change their identity (1:41)

Byron Scott approves the Grizzlies' trade of Mike Conley and ending the "Grindhouse" era as they expect to transition with Ja Morant via the NBA draft. (1:41)

This trade between the Utah Jazz and Memphis Grizzlies feels similar in its timeline to the Los Angeles Lakers dealing for Anthony Davis last weekend -- even though the value of the players involved is different, and the attention on them exceptionally different.

Both trades were talked about extensively ahead of the trade deadline but not completed then, and in both cases the team getting the best player was apparently willing to pay a higher price this time around.

Let's dive into this deal and what it means.

The deal

Jazz get: Mike Conley

Grizzlies get: Grayson Allen, Kyle Korver, Jae Crowder, 2019 No. 23 pick, protected 2020 first-round pick
