Among other topics, Derrick Favors boasted that he could play next to Rudy Gobert, thanks to his hard work on his 3-point shot. Yeah, the assembled media laughed, as did podium mate Alec Burks. But while it looked like a joke, and sounded like a joke, Favors was not joking. In fact, he recoiled when a reporter insinuated he was. “I was dead-a– serious. I was dead serious when I said that,” he said.
Snyder says you can expect to see Lopez around a lot this year. “We all know Raul from when he was drafted here and often times, similar to (Jazz associate coach) DeSagana Diop, we’ve had situations where we felt like a particular guy that’s a former player has a perspective that they can add,” Snyder said. “I think DeSagana’s done that with (Derrick Favors) and (Ekpe Udoh) and we wanted Raul to be a part of the group and not only for Ricky, because obviously the relationship’s there, but to have an opportunity to work with our guys in the context of the coaching staff.”
