Utah Jazz shipped veteran big Derrick Favors and a future first-round pick to the Oklahoma City Thunder in exchange for a future second-rounder, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Jazz created cap space by trading Favors, who had a great year as a back-up center in Utah, averaging 5.4 points, 5.5 rebounds and a block per game in 68 total appearances.

The veteran center has two more years in the $29.2 million contract he signed last summer. The third year of his contract is a $10.1 million player option.

As for the Thunder, they add up to their huge chunk of first-round selections, while they have another player in Favors, who can bring more future assets to the team during the 2021-22 season.
