Conroy called up

Will Conroy has finally achieved his dream of being a part of an NBA team, having been called up today by the Memphis Grizzlies.
He isn’t expected to be in Memphis in time for tonight’s game but against Sacramento but is expected to be there for Wednesday’s game against the Dallas Mavericks pending passing a physical.
“He gets to wear that trademark number five,” Renee Conroy said today.
Conroy had been tearing it up in the NBA DL for the Tulsa 66ers where he was averaging 15.8 points and 10.3 assists per game. He is the NBA DL’s all-time leader in triple-doubles.
“He’s extremely excited,” Renee Conroy said. “Considering where he came from, this is amazing.”
Conroy overcame surgery this summer that was initially feared to be career-ending. He had a rod inserted in his lower left leg to repair a stress fracture suffered last season while playing for Tulsa.
He becomes the fourth member of the Lorenzo Romar-era Huskies in the NBA, joining Nate Robinson (Knicks), Brandon Roy (Blazers) and Bobby Jones (76ers).
In other UW alumni news, Tre Simmons is playing in Israel.
