Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry said that "getting Derrick Favors back and him anchoring our defense was a real key."
Favors wasn't available for nearly a month in November/December, but Gentry pointed out that New Orleans was the "sixth-best defensive team in the league since the All-Star break." He also mentioned Favors among the veteran leaders of the team, all of which suggests he'd lobby to keep Favors for 2020-21 and beyond. Favors is an unrestricted free agent, so it could boil down to financial feasibility. May 02 10:38 am (EST)
