The Utah Jazz Guard was named as a replacement for an injury by Commissioner Adam Silver on Friday.He will take the place of Sun Watcher Devin Booker (himself a replacement for the Lakers Anthony Davis) who sprained his left knee

Conley had made no secret of his desire to make the All-Star Game and, prior to selecting the initial reserves, had said that one choice would obviously mean the world to me

“It would say a lot about me as a person after the year I was last year, coming back and competing at the level I was at,” Conley added, I feel like I’m good enough to be in that conversation and to be honest with one of those reserves I think everything fits together this year: We have the best record and we have our coaching training [one of the teams] So everything falls into line Year won’t happen, man, this will be difficultâ ????

“I pray Mike gets on” Donovan Mitchell said “For a man like him who did so many things for his career” on and off the floor? he deserves itâ ????

At first it didn’t happen when teammates Rudy Gobert and Mitchell decided to represent jazz (along with coach Quin Snyder) in Atlanta as they were labeled as reserves for the game

Conley expressed disappointment with his expulsion, which only worsened when Booker was quickly identified as Davis’ by Silver Replacement of injuries

Conley will not only replace Booker in the All-Star game itself, but also in the 3-point shootout set that is slated to take place earlier
