It really could go both ways. Frankly, I'm taking the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" approach... Memphis should try and resign Battier and keep at it without shaking up a formula that clearly worked for them last season.
You're right on point, Memphis would still keep Conley if they even did a deal like I said made sense. The line up would be something like:
