After an action packed day in the NBA that saw a handful of trades, the Utah Jazz cap off the night with a move that would send center Derrick Favors to the Oklahoma City Thunder.
The Utah Jazz are in serious talks on a deal to send center Derrick Favors to the Oklahoma City Thunder, sources tell me and @Tjonesonthenba.

The deal is still yet to be completed but it looks fairly promising that Favors is headed to the Thunder. The 11-year veteran apperaned in 68 regular season games last season for the Jazz and averaged 15.3 minutes, scoring 5.4 points shooting 63.8% from the field.
It wouldn’t be surprising for Favors to have a short stay in OKC as the team is in a full on rebuild, however with the depth at the big man position being a problem after the Al Horford-Kemba Walker trade, Favors could stay longer than expected.
