Report: Favors Re-emerges in New Jersey

From Derrick Favors to Wesley Johnson and back to Favors. The New Jersey Nets continue to change their mind on who to take at No. 3, but Chad Ford of ESPN writes that the Nets are now leaning back toward their original favorite:

Georgia Tech big man Derrick Favors is back in favor in New Jersey. A league source told me on Wednesday night that after 24 hours of debate, it looks like Favors has re-emerged as the favorite to go No. 3. After a so-so Favors workout on Monday, the Nets began to move toward Syracuse forward Wes Johnson. But with the draft now less than 24 hours away, Favors has re-emerged as the favorite.

While the Wolves initially were locked in on Johnson, they reportedly became comfortable with Favors in the past 24 hours. Now, their draft plans could be changing again.

I’m not sure if Minnesota will greet the news with joy or relief. They focused in on Johnson early but got comfortable with the idea of taking Favors at 4 over the course of the last 24 hours.

How long until these plans get yet another shakeup?
