New Orleans Pelicans: Derrick Favors’ veteran presence should sturdy youth

On a roster full of newness, the New Orleans Pelicans’ front office saw the wisdom in adding veteran depth to a roster lacking experience. While JJ Redick makes more headlines, power forward Derrick Favors is due to provide a sturdy rotational big in the Big Easy.

Heading into his tenth year of NBA basketball, playing all but 56 of his 632 career games as a member of the Utah Jazz (picked third overall by the New Jersey Nets in 2010), Favors now finds himself a role player on an exciting young team.
