    Favors signed a training camp contract with Chicago on Monday, Darnell Mayberry of The Athletic reports.

    Favors returns to the NBA after signing but not logging any playing time with the Hawks in February. The 32-year-old will likely begin 2023-24 with the Bulls' G League affiliate.

  • Derrick Favors: Back on open market

    Favors wasn't re-signed after his 10-day contract with the Hawks expired Jan. 20, Brad Rowland of the Locked On Podcast Network reports.

    With Clint Capela and Onyeka Okongwu back to full health, the Hawks didn't have a need to keep Favors around as a third option at center. He didn't appear in any games for Atlanta during his week-and-a-half-long stint with the team.

  • Derrick Favors: Inks deal with Atlanta

    Favors is signing a 10-day contract with the Hawks on Tuesday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Favors hasn't played in the NBA this season after being waived by the Rockets in October. His signing may be insurance if Clint Capela (calf) is out for an extended time. Favors averaged 5.3 points and 4.7 rebounds in 16.7 minutes across 39 games for the Thunder in 2021-22.

  • Rockets' Derrick Favors: Will be waived by Rockets

    Favors is expected to be waived by the Rockets, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Favors doesn't fit the Rockets' rebuilding timeline, so he'll be waived to make room for younger options. He may find a suitor willing to give him reserve center minutes, though he's mostly a depth option at this point.

  • Thunder's Derrick Favors: Gets dealt to Houston

    The Thunder traded Favors, along with Theo Maledon, Ty Jerome, Maurice Harkless and a 2025 second-round pick to the Rockets in exchange for David Nwaba, Sterling Brown, Trey Burke and Marquese Chriss on Thursday, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reports.

    Favors is set to join Houston after playing with the Thunder for just one season, where he averaged 5.3 points and 4.7 rebounds over 16.7 minutes per game. The Rockets dealt Christian Wood to the Mavericks over the offseason, likely indicating that Alperen Sengun will be the starting center for Houston. Favors figures to land in a depth role behind Alperen Sengun this upcoming season.

  • Thunder's Derrick Favors: Exercises player option for 2022-23

    Favors (back) opted into his $10.2 million player option for the 2022-23 season, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.

    Favors missed the final 17 games of the 2021-22 campaign due to a back issue, but the veteran is expected to be healthy by the start of next season. He averaged career lows in points (5.3) and rebounds (4.7) while playing 16.7 minutes per game across 39 appearances during his first year with the Thunder and will likely garner a similar backup role during the 2022-23 campaign.

  • Thunder's Derrick Favors: Won't return this season

    Favors (back) will be out for the remainder of the season, Joe Mussatto of The Oklahoman reports.

    The Thunder took Favors' status on a game-by-game basis for 17 straight absences and have finally decided to rule him out for the year. Isaiah Roby and Olivier Sarr should continue seeing the majority of minutes at center.
