Have you seen what legit bigs make in this league? Much less a young one with promise?

You cant find many game changers on the defensive end that are still competent on offence. He'll be worth every cent.
Yep.

He will most likely be worth it, but that seems like a huge deal for a dude so young with so little on his resume to justify this money in a contract negotiation. He has great potential and Utah was probably scared to death of losing him after losing their two stud bigs hence operpaying.

That said ...if he isnt this season, he will be a 20-10 guy next season. Plays like a real big, young, athletic and did a lot with limited miutes.

I don't kow about 20/10, Favors isnt a 20 PPG scorer in my view. His real value is on the boards and defensively.

Promise should't get you 12mil. And promise doesn't equate to legit.

Agreed! And they should have just signed him for a mill more than Amir IMO

Would you give that money to Ed Davis? Averages 23 minutes against other teams bemches. Hardly a proven commodity and could have been had cheaper and if not they should have kept Milsap for the small amount more. Makes no sense. At least they could have got something good by trading favours.

Promise didn't get him 12 mil. 3 or 4 mil, maybe. Even if he was 27 years old and didn't show continuous improvement, no reason for him to get paid less than what Asik or Taj Gibson got paid.

Other than getting injured, which can happen to anyone, I think this is a low risk deal for Utah. Worst case scenario is that he's slightly too expensive. But they avoided a big headache since he'd very likely get a larger offer next summer.

Ed Davis is not as good.

Serious question, have you watched Favors play beyond Raptor games?

Secondly, everyone trashing the deal, there were points last season where he was legitimately Utah's best player. Not best big, but player on a bad team. Yeah he hasn't started, but who cares about starting. When he plays, he impacts the game.

Thirdly, this is Utah. They had to overpay. It's Utah.

No because I've seen what he is when he was here for 3 years.

Big men just cost more...I was blown away when Asik got paid like 8-9 mill a year.

That said I think Favors has a high probability of becoming really good with all the extra minutes he's gonna get this year

He should be in the Asik anual salary range imo.

Only because he was coming off a 26 game season and looked like a major health risk. If he was looking for a contract after the previous season, he'd easily get max.
