Johnson has averaged 7.3 points and 3.3 rebounds in 32 games this season.

SALT LAKE CITY — Derrick Favors was solid, as usual — especially his monstrous dunk late in the fourth quarter — but his stat line of six points, seven rebounds and one block didn’t jump off the page in the Jazz's 106-94 win over Charlotte.

"I don't think his line necessarily reflects his impact," Jazz coach Quin Snyder said. "It's good to see the work he's put in. He's an important part of our team and has been for the last month, two months, three months, and he remains that."

That last phrase was key.

The big news regarding Favors wasn’t what he did or didn’t do in this game. It was that he was on the court wearing his familiar No. 15 in a Jazz uniform after his name had been bandied about before Thursday’s trade deadline.

Favors actually laughed when asked about his name coming up in trade talk. It's happened before. In fact, the 6-foot-10 power forward started hearing his name in rumors after being picked by New Jersey third overall out of Georgia Tech in 2010. That season, the rumors became reality, as he was traded to Utah, but it's just been hot air and wasted pixels since then.

"I’m in trade rumors every year. I'm used to that, man," Favors said, smiling. "If I’m not in trade rumors, you know, I’m kind of like, 'Why am I not in trade rumors? Something must be wrong.'"

Favors was so unconcerned, he slept in almost until the 1 p.m. MT trade deadline on Thursday. He woke up at about 12:50 p.m. after sleeping in his own bed for the first time since Utah returned from a 4-0 road trip in Memphis, New Orleans, San Antonio and Phoenix.

News had long surfaced about the three-way trade that sent Rodney Hood to Cleveland and Joe Johnson to Sacramento in exchange for Jae Crowder (and the right to waive Derrick Rose).

"I missed all of it," he said. "I was sleeping. I was getting my rest, man."

Favors also joked about seeing which players he'll supposedly be...
