HoopsHype Derrick Favors rumors
Official numbers on Favors' extension obtained by ESPN.com show that 2010's No. 2 overall pick received a four-year deal that guarantees just over $47.7 million. Sources indicate that Hayward's deal could still wind up higher than Favors' contract, given the strong interest leaguewide in the former Butler star and the fears in Utah that Hayward would attract even more lucrative offer sheets in free agency from rival bidders next summer if he gets that far.

The Jazz front office continues to have talks with fourth-year forward Gordon Hayward about a possible contract extension. But even after the team announced Saturday it had agreed to a multi-year deal with forward Derrick Favors, worth a reported $49 million over four seasons, Hayward said he is not concerned about getting a deal done. "Not at all," he said. "Extremely happy for him. It’s great for the organization, for [Favors]. Couldn’t be happier for him. I’m just playing basketball. I don’t worry about that." Salt Lake Tribune
