Derrick Favors said he will "probably" join the Pelicans when play resumes in Orlando.
“I understand the conversation from both sides,” Favors said. “If coming back is the best thing for you, then you should come back. If sitting out is the best thing, then that’s what you should do." Favors detailed his own thinking, saying, "One of my big concerns is the coronavirus ... Social awareness is also a big concern. But I think there’s a way to play basketball and raise awareness at the same time." Jun 18 1:58 pm (EST)
