Favors, who joined the Jazz as a rookie during the trade that moved Deron Williams to New Jersey in 2010, has been a cornerstone of Utah’s on-court success. The 26-year-old averaged 12.3 points, 7.2 rebounds and 1.1 blocks per contest last season as the Jazz advanced to the Western Conference Semifinals.
