Report: Suns targeting Derrick Favors

We want the “Vlade” price.

NBA: Boston Celtics at Utah Jazz Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

In want is sure to be just one of many stories speculating what the Suns might do before Thursday’s trade deadline, Phoenix is said to covet Utah Jazz forward Derrick Favors.

The above source cites “sources” so you know this thing has legs.

A couple weeks ago Favors had his top scoring game of the 2016-17 campaign, a 20 point effort against the Atlanta Hawks. He pulled down 10 boards as well. Here are some moving pictures of that day.

Favors is in his 7th NBA season after being drafted by the New Jersey Nets with the 3rd overall pick in the 2010 draft. This season he’s averaging 9 points and 6 rebounds in 23 minutes.

I find this to be intriguing, but I wonder if I’m really that interested or just desperate for Ryan McDonough to do general manager stuff. Do you want to see Derrick Favors in a Suns uniform? What’s the price?

The Sixers have trades to make. Who's likely to be out the door?
