SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Former Jazzman Derrick Favors agreed to return to Utah on a three-year deal, according to The Athletic.

After the 2018-19 season, the Jazz traded Favors to the New Orleans Pelicans.

During nine seasons with Utah, Favors averaged 12.1 points, 7.4 rebounds, 1.2 assists, and 1.3 blocks per game. He played in 576 games as a member of the Jazz, including 413 starts.

The center owns career averages of 11.4 points, 7.4 rebounds, 1.1 assists, and 1.3 blocks per contest.

Favors joined the re-signing of Jordan Clarkson as Utah’s first two moves in free agency.
