RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

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 Millsapís 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 theyíll have lots of salary freed up. Both Al Jefferson and Millsap will be off the books. Thatís when Favorsí 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 heíll likely start at small forward. But thereís 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 heíll 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. Heís 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. Heíll also have healthy competition for minutes, with Joe Smith and Troy Murphy also vying for time.
