Jazz forward Derrick Favors isn't going anywhere.
Favors' agent, Wallace Prather, said Monday that his client currently has no intention of playing in Europe or China during the NBA lockout.
"Not a chance … as of now," Prather said.
Agent Mark Bartelstein said that playing overseas during the lockout is an option for former Jazz guard Earl Watson, but a move is not imminent.
Watson would definitely consider an offer, but it'd have to be a good deal that fits into his NBA future.
The 10-year veteran averaged 4.3 points and 3.5 assists last season in 80 games (13 starts) for the Jazz.
Watson, 32, has expressed interest in re-signing with Utah next season. He will be an unrestricted free agent once the lockout ends.
