Do you really think he can play Embid one on one like Baynes does? I like Favors but I don't see any center that plays as good straight up against Embid as Baynes.


Hey Jaylen. I bet 519 Tommy Points on you guys and lost

Using the MLE on a guy for one matchup (with an extraordinarily injury prone player to boot) is a dangerous path, in my opinion.

Favors is an athletic, strong, defensive minded rebounding big. I think he'd be good (not quite as good as Baynes) at defending Embiid. The problem with Baynes defending Embiid is how foul-prone Baynes is, whether genuine fouls or bs calls

Very little chance Favors can be signed for the MLE. I'd guess he gets at least a few offers in the $15 m / year range.

Isn't Noel a LLE or minimum candidate? Evan Turner 2 year rehab project.
