    What's Plan B since you have to renounce Favors first, and Brooklyn ties up Utah's cap space for 3 days? Go after Conley? Dragic and some wings?

    Utah seems too risk-averse to offer a max to a RFA. They would probably wait for the big name FAs to sign in Brooklyn and hope for Brooklyn to renounce DLo.

    I think no matter what, we should be renouncing/waiving Favors. If we keep him, I want to lock him up to a cheaper but long term deal. If we gave Favors 3 years $35-40 million, that's more than he's getting in the open market and it saves us $5+ million for this summer. Of course we only offer him that if we miss out on the big targets.

    Just picking up at Favors at $18 million should be out of the discussion. At least in my opinion.

    Why? Then you've locked yourself into Favors for 3 years. Strike out in FA and keep him on an expiring and you still maintain the ability to pursue a trade into the deadline. For a team looking to shed a veteran, an expiring has more value than Derrick at 3 years.

    I'm fine with Favors staying at a lower number. He might only play 20 minutes per night with a majority of those being our backup C, but he has proven to be a force in the lockerroom and at times during the playoffs.

    I guess I'm just tired of the dance we do where we act like we are going to trade Favors at the deadline then we say he just means to much and we don't do it. Lock him down to a more appropriate amount ($12 instead of $18) and let's just move on.

    Of course that is if we miss out on Tobias and Randle.

    Tony Bradley with this re-tweet today.

    "Failing to meet your objective doesn’t make you a failure! There is strength in failing; you learn, become stronger, and often times it helps discover things about your self that you would have never known!"

    Pretty sure this means the Jazz are cutting him.

    His salary is guaranteed. At most, they might trade him. I’d doubt that they cut him even if he ends up being the 15th man on the roster.

    They can still cut him. See Justin Patton.

    Jazz Twitter is abuzz this morning about the Conley trade. Seems like it's got real legs. If Favors isn't part of the trade what do you all think it looks like?
