Predict what DL will say the day after the trade deadline. I'll go first "The best trades are the ones you don't make". "We like our team too much." "We now have more flexibility" (for what, I don't know).
"We haven't seen what this team can do when healthy.""We're always trying to improve."
The majority of Favors minutes on the floor speak differently.Favors is a great dude and great player. But he doesn't help us where we need help in the playoffs. If we had Conley and Lowry, you would trade one to improve the team elsewhere. Having 2 good centers does us no good when we need it most.
Or they didnt like having to take on his contract and trade an asset. To match the Bulls offer they would have had to given up Allen at least, or a first. Utah probably thought that was too much.Otto Porter is a pretty dang good fit. My only thought is DL didn't like how his stats plummeted this year without John Wall. He couldn't take on any more scoring load (less, actually).
