Notes:
2010: Selected by New Jersey in 1st round (3rd overall) of the NBA Draft...2011: Traded to Utah in a four-player deal, Feb. 23rd; NBA All-Rookie Second Team...2013: Signed with Utah to a four-year contract extension worth $49 million, Oct. 19th.

Earned ACC Rookie of the Year honors this past season and made an instant impact for Georgia Tech...Has the skill set to instantly improve some NBA team at the next level...Not much Favors cannot do on the floor and that is largely due to his athletic abilities...A threat in all aspects, having the speed to run the floor in transition, but also the power to battle in the paint...His extraordinary wingspan and leaping capabilities make him a thrilling finisher around the rim...Has a variety of post moves and his footwork is impressive for someone his age...Has improved his mid-range jumper and has proven to be a defensive nightmare for most opponents...His size makes him a terror on the glass and a shot blocking artist...However, there are some areas where Favors is still raw...The budding star could improve his passing and also needs to learn to relax and let the game come to him...He could stand to add a little more size, which will help him handle double teams better...He needs to improve his work ethic and also tends to lose steam at the end of games due to lack of conditioning.
