Free Agent Rumors: Favors, Ellington, Tolliver

The Jazz have already met with free agent big man Derrick Favors, Tony Jones of The Salt Lake Tribune reports. Favors met with club general manager Dennis Lindsey and head coach Quin Snyder for three hours today to discuss his future.

Marc Spears of The Undefeated, also reporting on the meeting, tweets that the forward is expected to make a decision on Monday. Favors – like the Jazz in general – enjoyed a pleasant surprise of a 2017/18 season and meshed with center Rudy Gobert in ways that he hadn’t previously.

That successful year has breathed new life into Favors’ future with the franchise that he’s played for since 2011. Favors averaged 12.3 points and 7.2 rebounds per game this season, a notable improvement from the 9.5 and 6.1 he posted in 2016/17.

Both the Timberwolves and Mavs were previously linked to the 26-year-old.

    I could see Kyle Kover being a person of interest for the Sixers. They need someone to replace Reddick if he doesn’t come back on a more team friendly deal than the $20 mil he signed for last year.

    Philly needs a prototypical 3&D guy? Too bad Mikel Bridges didn’t fall to them at 10, he woulda been perfect…. oh wait.

  3. JJ was great last year, good value, Korver is done man, rather pay extra for JJ any time.
