11:01 AM ET 10.19 | Derrick Favors has reached agreement on a four-year, $49 million-plus contract extension with the Utah Jazz, league sources told Yahoo Sports. The deal includes bonus incentives that could push the package well over $50 million, sources said. Favors, 22, is a centerpiece of the Jazz's future and will take over a starting frontcourt position because of the off-season departures of Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap. A contract will be signed in the near future, sources tell Yahoo.

Greg Monroe is smiling right now. Favors just set the bar for his new contract.

No doubt, Guam. If he got that much as a PF, Monroe is going to get 16-18 million.

woow this is so stupid. Why extend now? It isn't like any other teams are competing over him. He hasn't proven ANYTHING yet. They just might as well have held on to Al or Milsap, who have actually done something atleast.

NBA must stand for the No Brains Association. Favors has done nothing to justify his contract but yet...

Someone needs to amnesty some of these owners.
