NBA Free Agent Predictions For Intriguing 2020 Class

22. Derrick Favors

Favors is a solid yet unspectacular player. He can start for any team in a pinch — providing rim protection, rebounding, and toughness. At only 29 years of age, there’s certainly some value there for a contender. There are rumors that Golden State might opt to sign Dwight Howard. However, Favors might be the better option. The former Georgia Tech star averaged 9.8 RPG in only 24.4 minutes for New Orleans this past year. He’d also be a good mentor to James Wiseman (if the Warriors do take him with the No. 2 Overall pick).

Prediction: Favors inks a short deal with the Golden State Warriors
