In agreeing to reported deals with Bogdan Bogdanovic and Ed Davis in the opening hours of Sunday's (Monday, PHL time) frenzy, the Utah Jazz have moved in a different direction with some of their frontcourt for 2019-20.  

That means Derrick Favors, who has been with the Jazz since 2011, is on his way out of town and headed a little closer to his home state of Georgia. Per multiple reports, the New Orleans Pelicans are set to acquire Favors via a trade. ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reports the Pelicans are sending 2021 and 2023 second-round picks -- which are both from the Golden State Warriors -- to the Jazz as part of the deal.
