Derrick Favors Headed To Rockets according to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, the Thunder will trade swingman David Nwaba, wing Sterling Brown, point guard Trey Burke, and power forward Marquese Chriss to the Rockets for centres Derrick Favors, Ty Jerome, Maurice Harkless, and Theo Maledon as well as the Hawks’ 2025 second-round draught pick (Twitter link).

In the agreement, Woj adds, Oklahoma City will receive two trade exceptions. In terms of salaries alone, the exchange will assist the Thunder in staying $10MM below the harsh luxury tax cap barrier set by the league. Favors, in particular, is tradeable as a reliable backup big man among the returning players arriving in Houston, according to Wojnarowski. According to Woj, the Rockets only have to return an additional $1MM in salary while receiving a second-round draught pick from Houston in the deal.

The 6’9″-tall, 31-year-old Favors was a crucial backup big man for many good playoff-bound teams. He played in just 39 games for the Thunder last season, averaging 5.3 PPG on 51.6% shooting, 4.7 RPG, and 16.7 MPG.

Given that the best player in this new trade was sent away from the team and that No. 2 draught pick Chet Holmgren has been ruled out for the season due to a Lisfranc injury to his right foot, it appears that the Thunder are prioritising a year of young player development as they prepare to bolster their impressive young roster in the 2023 draught lottery.
