Don’t trade Derrick Favors: A plea from a Utah Jazz fan

Don’t trade Derrick Favors: A plea from a Utah Jazz fan

It makes little sense, not with the market; and not with how good he’s still going to be. I love Derrick Favors. And I don’t think that the Utah Jazz have to trade him. In fact, if Favors was traded one of my favorite players on the team would be going away. And as a fan, a subjective fan, that would be unpleasant and unfortunate. I understand the financials. I understand the NBA Trends for more three point shooters. I understand all the guys on the team who are in contract years. And I understand how the Jazz would want to avoid being a team paying the luxury tax until it became...

Phoenix Suns Trade Rumors: Team Interested In Derrick Favors Of Utah Jazz

Phoenix Suns trade rumors have the team interested in acquiring Derrick Favors from the Utah Jazz before the February 23 NBA trade deadline. Fans of the Suns might find it odd that the team is looking to bring on a player with an eight-figure salary during a rebuilding year, but that is exactly what the front office in Phoenix is advertising this week. A report by the Salt Lake City Tribune indicates that the Suns contacted the Jazz about Favors’ availability. This piece of news could have been generated from Favors coming up in previous NBA trade rumors, as it doesn’t appear likely...

Report: Utah Jazz interested in Phoenix Suns’ swingman P.J. Tucker

Where there’s smoke there’s Phoenix. The Utah Jazz are once again being linked to the Phoenix Suns. This time to veteran swingman P.J. Tucker. P.J.

The Utah Jazz have reportedly been interested in Lou Williams while the Phoenix Suns are trying to pry Derrick Favors away from Utah. Lou Williams has averaged 15.5 points, 2.6 rebounds, and 2.7 assists against the Utah Jazz over his career. Maybe here soon he’ll be bringing those averages to the Utah Jazz’s bench rather than against them. ESPN’s Ian Bagley is reporting that the Utah Jazz have expressed interest lately in the Los Angeles Lakers’ Lou Williams.

Report: Phoenix Suns interested in Utah Jazz’s Derrick Favors

Derrick Favors on the move? A report from Tony Jones of the Salt Lake Tribune points to the Phoenix Suns as having interest in Derrick Favors. Elsewhere, the Phoenix Suns have expressed interest in talking to the Jazz about Derrick Favors, Utah's starting power forward, sources say. Even through he has been dealing with a nagging knee injury throughout the season, Favors is still considered important to the success of the team, so it is less likely that the Jazz part ways with him. Still, Utah has been willing to listen when it comes to Favors, who is on a team-friendly contract through...

Utah exploring the trade market for Derrick Favors

The Utah Jazz have recently been exploring the trade market for forward/center Derrick Favors, per ESPN's Zach Lowe. What It Means: It doesn't sound like there are any concrete talks at this point, but Favors is set to become a free agent in the off-season, and with Gordon Hayward and George Hill both needing to be re-signed Utah may look to get what they can for Favors. Favors has struggled this year after suffering a preseason knee injury, and is averaging 9.2 points, 6.1 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 23.5 minutes per game. His .501 true shooting percentage is a career-low,...
