Derrick Favors is rumored to have interest in returning to Utah as a free agent, according to Jazz beat reporter Andy Larsen of the Salt Lake Tribune.
Favors didn't quite work out with the Pelicans, but he did reportedly enjoy his time in Utah and is considering a return. The Jazz could offer him the mid-level exception, but they may not want to give him all of it, so he could be asked to take a discount if he returns to the Jazz. In terms of fantasy hoops, he's proven that he can provide top-100 value while only earning minutes in the mid-20s in Quin Snyder's system, so he'd be on the radar as a potential late-round target as a member of the Jazz.
