Favors Wows Nets Brass, But He's Still Available for 'Melo

Fred Kerber has a fun fact in his story on Derrick Favors: His 10 offensive rebounds Sunday were the most by a Net rookie in 30 years, since Mike O'Koren grabbed that many in the Carter administration. Kenyon Martin didn't do it. Favors did it in Game 3 of his career.

But the Post writer also writes that if the Nuggets want Favors in a deal for Carmelo Anthony, the Nets would "almost surely" part with him.  Still, "the longer the trade talks drag on, the harder it will be to part with Favors," Kerber writes.

He also quotes a rival scout. "I see why they like him so much. He has a way to go, but he is going to be a player, a real player. That kid is relentless on the glass."
