The Utah Jazz moved quickly to bring back point guard Mike Conley, agreeing on a three-year, $72.5 million deal, according to ESPN.

Conley, 33, produced 16.2 points and six assists per game last season with Utah, shooting 41.2 percent from beyond the 3-point line and making the first All-Star Game appearance in his career.

Utah finished with the best record in the NBA in the regular season.

After Conley was hurt in the first round of the playoffs, the Jazz fell to the L.A. Clippers in the second round. Conley appeared in only the final game of that series, going 1-for-8 in 26 minutes.

The Jazz traded Derrick Favors but face luxury tax penalty as the contract extensions for Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert begin. More moves could soon follow the Conley agreement, with players including Bojan Bogdanovich and Joe Ingles among the possible casualties.
