Utah Jazz: Mike Conley, 3 years

After the Jazz traded Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell this offseason, Mike Conley became the longest-tenured player on the team. Conley had played every season in Utah with Bojan Bogdanovic (who the Jazz signed as a free agent after acquiring Conley via trade in the summer of 2019), but Bogdanovic was just recently traded to the Pistons for Saben Lee and Kelly Olynyk.

Conley could also be on the move before this season begins as Danny Ainge appears ready to pull off one of the great tanks of our time. That would leave Jordan Clarkson (traded from the Cavs in Dec. 2019) as the premier Utah vet, or Udoka Azubuike (2020 draft) if Clarkson is traded as well.
