Favors: Nets Have "Very Good Interest"

In a May 20 interview during the NBA Draft Combine, Derrick Favors told reporters that the Nets have expressed interest in him.  Asked if he sensed "genuine interest" from Rod Thorn and Kiki Vandeweghe when they spoke with him the night before, Favors answered, "I felt there was very good interest." He added, "they said they want someone who will come in and work hard, get every rebound...just play hard every minute out there."

Favors also said he was hearing from his agent that he could go as high as #3. Among the reporters were Fred Kerber and David Aldridge.  The Georgia Tech product, who laughed off suggestions he may need to learn Russian, said "I think I can be that guy" to rebound and defend at the power forward position next to Brook Lopez

Asked to compare his game to current NBA players, Favors replied "Amare Stoudemire and Kevin Garnett."  Kudoes to NJQuestCat for finding the video.
