Favors spent the majority of his career with the Jazz from 2011-2019.
“I’m blessed and grateful to be back with the Utah Jazz,” Favors said via Jones.
The Jazz could use Favors as a backup to Rudy Gobert at the center position, or play them both at the same time.
The 29-year-old averaged 9.0 points, 9.8 rebounds and 1.6 assists per game with the New Orleans Pelicans last season.
