Well if thats the case, it could make sense. Derrick Favors has been doing well. I'd imagine with Millsap and Favors both being young and superb, Jefferson is the odd man out. I've never been a fan of his relatively low shooting percentage for his entire career. No big man should be shooting around 40%.
