The Utah Jazz have agreed to a four-year, $52-million contract with Jordan Clarkson, according to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

Clarkson, who was acquired from Cleveland by the Jazz on Dec. 24, 2019 via trade, suited up in 42 regular-season games for Utah in 2019-20. The 28-year-old averaged 15.6 points and 208 rebounds per game, and then 16.7 points and 3.4 rebounds in seven post-season contests.

The Jazz have also agreed to bring back Derrick Favors on a three-year, $27-million deal, as per The Athletic's Tony Jones.

Favors, 29, returns to the Jazz after spending the 2019-20 season with the New Orleans Pelicans, where he suited up in 51 games while averaging nine points and 9.8 rebounds. Before being traded to the Big Easy in July 2019, Favors spent nine seasons in Utah.
