The Jazz and Derrick Favors have agreed on a four-year contract extension averaging about $12 million per year.

Thus general manager Dennis Lindsey did himself a few favors (Rock On isn’t above stooping to puns).

The Jazz big man told Utah media: “The main thing I like about Salt Lake City is that it’s peaceful. It’s not loud with a lot of stuff going on. You can go home and get peace of mind. I hope to make this my home and I hope to retire here.’’

Sorry to inform him, but if the Jazz again miss the playoffs, “peace” isn’t likely to be the operative word around here.
