Derrick Favors has reportedly agreed to a deal to return to the Utah Jazz.
The 29-year-old big man will return to the Jazz on a three-year, $30 million deal, and it'll be interesting to see if he returns to a starting role. Bojan Bogdanovic started at the four-spot for Utah last season, but he could slide over to SF with Joe Ingles returning to the second unit to cater to Favors. Favors could also be used as more of a backup to Rudy Gobert, which would make it tough for rookie Udoka Azubuike to get into the rotation. If he's able to earn minutes in the mid-20s, he could have a bit of a bounce-back year, but we wouldn't recommend reaching for Favors on draft day. Nov 20 7:04 pm (EST)
