RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016-17

Subscribe now to see our 2016-17 outlook.

2015-16

Favors is entering his sixth year in the NBA after finishing up last season with arguably his best campaign of basketball for the Jazz. While averaging 31 minutes on 74 appearances, Favors accrued 16.0 points, 8.2 rebounds, 1.5 assists, 0.8 steals, and 1.7 blocks per game under the direction of first-year coach Quin Snyder. The latter portion of the season was spent teamed up with Rudy Gobert in the frontcourt, and the two combined to form one of the most imposing rim-protecting duos in the league. This coming season shouldn't be any different as Favors seems to be in line for his third-straight season of averaging more than 30 minutes while also providing at least 13 points, eight rebounds, one assist, and one and a half blocked shots. Additionally, he only had seven games where he committed at least five fouls but showed discipline in each of those contests since he never fouled out of a single contest last season. Favors' consistency makes him a viable pick in the early goings of standard drafts, but there's also little room for improvement which will likely keep him right around the fourth to fifth round range.

2014-15

Derrick Favors is entering his fifth season in the NBA. The pride of Georgia Tech is coming off his best season in the league, as he averaged 13.3 points, 8.7 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 1.0 steal, and 1.5 blocks in 30 minutes per game last season. Despite dealing with some hip issues, the 23-year-old played and started in 73 games last season as one of Utah's most influential players. With the addition of new head coach Quin Snyder, Favors will likely start at center alongside Enes Kanter at power forward, although Favors will see time playing both positions. The early reports at the philosophy Snyder will have on offense is to surround these two big men with shooters, which may allow Favors to improve on his 1.2 assists per game from last season. On the other end of the court, Favors will remain as the defensive backbone for the Jazz and will have many opportunities to showcase his shot-blocking ability. Since moving into a starting role last season following the departures of Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap in the 2013 offseason, Favors shot an impressive 52 percent from the field. However, he proved to be somewhat of a liability at the free-throw line by finishing the season at 67 percent.

2013-14

With ex-teammates Paul Millsap and Al Jefferson leaving the Jazz, Favors will finally get a chance to shine. After being selected by the Nets with the third overall pick in the 2010 draft, Favors has yet to reach his breakout season. Over the last year, he averaged 9.4 points (48 percent from the field, 69 percent from the line), 7.1 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 0.9 steals and 1.7 blocks in 23 minutes per game off the bench. His ability to produce both steals and blocks from the power forward position gives him a competitive advantage over others. Now being a top option in the Jazz lineup, Favors has the opportunity to have his breakout season. With young players teeming at the helm of each position, the Jazz are likely to experiment with different offensive strategies, which can only be beneficial for Favors. Expecting 30-plus minutes from the talented forward is not unreasonable at this point. If Favors can remain healthy for the year, he may be up for a true breakout year.

2012-13

Favors will once again have an opportunity to challenge for a starting role this season. Paul Millsap has been clogging up his development in Utah, but the Jazz remain committed to making Favors a larger part of their game plan. In nine games as a starter in 2011-12, Favors averaged 12.2 points and 9.3 rebounds per game. He may be second fiddle to Millsap once again, but this coming season will probably be Millsap’s last in Utah. Millsap is a trade candidate, and if he departs before the season ends, Favors would step into the starting power forward spot. Utah is looking toward the summer of 2013 when they’ll have lots of salary freed up. Both Al Jefferson and Millsap will be off the books. That’s when Favors’ value really kicks in. Whether Favors will be of use early in the season will depend on how the team decides to structure their rotation during training camp. They traded for Marvin Williams, and he’ll likely start at small forward. But there’s a chance the team could take a longer look at playing Millsap at small forward and running out a big lineup of Millsap, Favors, and Jefferson. They experimented with the lineup some last season. Overall, Favors is a great sleeper candidate, but the roadblocks he’ll have to overcome make it hard to invest in him too early.

2011-12

Along with Devin Harris, Favors was the other part in the blockbuster trade that sent Deron Williams packing. He is a young (20) and athletic power forward who got some extra playing time toward the end of last year and boosted his averages to 8.2 points and 5.2 rebounds a game. He is likely to be the first forward off the bench for the Jazz and could show some impressive numbers for a reserve player this season.

2010-11

The 6-10 Favors averaged 12.4 points, 8.4 rebounds, 0.9 steals and 2.1 blocks as a freshman at Georgia Tech last season. He’s an offensive rebounding machine and an excellent finisher around the basket. Favors also lacked genuine playmakers at GT to get him the rock, so having former All-Star Devin Harris will benefit his offensive numbers. On the downside, Favors is fairly turnover-prone, and his biggest test will be his ability to hit a mid-range shot with consistency. He’ll also have healthy competition for minutes, with Joe Smith and Troy Murphy also vying for time.
