Derrick Favors was bumped back to power forward on Friday night and shot just 3-of-8 from the field en route to seven points and seven rebounds in 27 minutes.
Favors looks like he’ll continue to start and has actually been a top-100 guy this season, but it certainly looks like the other shoe could drop in the future. The Jazz could stand to space the floor a little more and the big man is a bit of an awkward fit, so he’s going to pop up in trade rumors and might see his minutes decline down the stretch if he sticks with the Jazz. Selling high may prove difficult with a guy whose production has been such a surprise, but the clock appears to be ticking. It wouldn’t hurt to explore some long-term alternatives.
