Derrick Favors Wants More Playing Time Heading Into Final Guaranteed Year
Derrick Favors wants more playing time after averaging 21.2 minutes last season.
"I want to play more than what I played last year," Favors said. "If it's starting, cool. If it's coming off the bench, cool. I don't mind. I just want to play more. I don't want to sit on the bench no more."
Favors is entering the final guaranteed year of his rookie contract.
"Contract year is something in the back of your mind," he said. "I'm not thinking about it right now, but probably during the season if I'm not playing a lot then I'll probably start thinking about it."
