Derrick Favors scored nine points on 4-of-8 shooting with six rebounds, two assists, two steals and two blocks in 20 minutes of action in Monday’s preseason win over the Suns.
This was a preseason game and it was the Suns. There is a ton of talk in Utah and in fantasy circles about Favors regaining his explosiveness, but that’s not a great bet until we see a lot more. If he wasn’t showing basic levels of athleticism we’d be wondering about his career, and now he has to put everything together under the rigors of a real schedule. He’s a late-round pick at best for us.
