    Do you like the signing of Wes Matthews for 5 yrs/$34 million?
    YES (31)
     58%
    NO (13)
     25%
    Indifferent (9)
     17%
    Wesley Matthews

    Pros:
    Excellent defender, Already has playoff experience guarding elite scorers (Anthony, Bryant), Still young (23), Adequate shooter (38% from 3, 48% from field), solid ft shooter (83%), Excellent role player potential

    Cons: Is he a system player?, Used to starter's minutes (37 mpg in playoffs), Large contract for a role player






    From Yahoo!:
     Portland has targeted Utah’s restricted free agent Wesley Matthews, who had a surprising rookie season after going undrafted out of Marquette.
    Update-
     blazerbanter Numbers confirmed: #Blazers offer #Utah_Jazz's Matthews a five-year, $34-million deal with a $9.2 million up-front payment, source says.

    Remember, Wes is a restricted free agent, meaning the Jazz have 7 days to pass or match.

    Going after Wes Matthews makes no sense what so ever. Portland is loaded with forwards. We just traded Webster for SF Babbitt who should help with outside shooting even though Martell was our best shooter. The NBA has changed and the league is being dominated by PG and until Portland lands them a legit PG.....it's always going to be "another 50 win season and getting bounced out in the 1st rd."
    I know that Gilbert Arenas is very expensive but he would be a godsend for this Blazer squad. Cp3 will never be in a Blazer uniform, N.O. would have to be stupid to get rid of him. Tony Parker also would be a great fit but the Spurs asking price is way to high right now but they will have to do something with Parker.......Parker is only 28 yrs old and a finals MVP...there is no way he will accept coming off the bench when everyone knows that he is better than George Hill. coming back to Arenas...can you imagine a starting line up of:

    pg: Gilbert Arenas
    sg: Brandon Roy
    sf: Nicolas Batum
    pf: LaMarcus Aldridge
    c:  Greg Oden/Marcus Camby

    Bench: Bayless, Rudy, Babbitt, Cunningham.........

    You give me that starting 5 and I take them against any other team in the NBA.

    The only thing I can think of is we are dealing Williams and Rudy in another deal (maybe CP3 after hearing what Ford said) and are trying to cover our bases with the MLE. Matthews is a product of Sloan's offense but the Jazz fans love him and you can't take away the fact he is a great defender and a hard-nosed player. If we were to sign him, something big would happen elsewhere with the team.

    I mean, in the literal sense I suppose the Blazers might have "targeted" Mathews, but there's also a bunch of other guys they're considering as well. So are they all targets? Probably more of an issue of semantics than anything

    nobody is going to pick-up Gilbert's contract, not when he's got a maturity problem to the core (saying he's taking things serious in a written statement days before he poses before a game shooting his teamates with his fingers) and a problem staying on the court due to injuries as well. What was that stat david aldridge through out there the other day, Gilbert has played 20 some games in the last 3 seasons?

    We have three PG's as it is so we wont trade for a PG unless we lose one in the process. Also I wouldn't want to trade Andre for him and thats probably all they would take.

    Gilbert Arenas? No thanks! Not only is his contract an albatross, but he peaked in 2006 and isn't just a off the ball shooter; he needs the ball in his hands A LOT to operate. It wouldn't be as good a fit as some may think. Also, with everyone in our lineup capable of scoring, I could envision chemistry problems with that team. There is only one basketball.

    Like the weather in the Rose City, free agency is heating up for the Trail Blazers. Portland is about to make an offer to Matthews and if signed, will give the JAzz at most 7 days to decide if they want to match it or not.

    Updates:

    tribjazz From what I gather, the Jazz were told the bidding for Matthews would start at a full midlevel exception offer.
    tribjazz That's the most Matthews could sign for with any team after just one year in the NBA
    tribjazz Since he's a restricted free agent, Jazz declined to offer full MLE and told him to find from another team. They can match, remember.
    tribjazz Now they're waiting to see just how crushing the offer from Portland is. It is not a given that they're going to match anything.
    blazerbanter #Blazers are finalizing an offer sheet to #Utah_Jazz's Matthews, Matthew's agent Lance Young confirms.
    I wasn't too hot on WM before, but if we do end up with him it would be a good summer and still allow us to make a 3 or 4 for 1 consolidation trade. Not only does it bolster our bench but it cripples the Jazz even more so. Plus,to beat the Heat, you need perimeter defenders like Batum and WM. WM essentially becomes a Marty replacement imo.

    More info-

      blazerbanter #Blazers expected to make official offer today to #Utah_Jazz's Matthews, source says. Deal won't be "toxic" but will be front loaded.
    Our scouts are the best in the business, so I'm rolling with them on this one.

    Kim- I don't know. I haven't seen EW play much due to him being at Memphis. From what I can tell via scouting reports, he's a much more offensive threat (potentially) and might become a better defender, but again potentially. EW I think was taken with the future in mind. A player to groom down the road. You'll love this though. Some people feel Matthews could end up in the Raja Bell mold down the road. He's just a really, really good role player, something out bench needs.

    if our scouts, nate, and sloan are all high on this kid...then we have no right second guessing those great basketball minds. He's very young, has playoff experience, and would hurt the jazz...this is the kind of diplomatic move we need to either hurt the jazz pocketbook at least, if not give us more power in a tough division.

    However this could also mean one of two things; more likely it will let us know Nate is going business as usual and going to limit this rookie's minutes like he always does to rookies, or less likely give us a decent starter in front of babbit in case we have to use batum in a blockbuster trade. Personally Batum and mathews fighting for minutes as our 3's, with a young babbit learning from the bench...sounds phenomenal.

    Here's the breakdown from Yahoo!-

    From an undrafted rookie to an occasional starter with the Utah Jazz, guard Wesley Matthews’(notes) remarkable first season made another dramatic turn: He’s signed a five-year, $34 million offer sheet with the Portland Trail Blazers, a league executive with knowledge of the deal told Yahoo! Sports.

    The Blazers offered their full midlevel exception in a frontloaded contract that includes a $9.2 million payday in the first year in hopes it would be too expensive for the Jazz to match and keep Matthews, the source said. The Blazers had considered making an offer to Los Angeles Lakers guard Jordan Farmar(notes), sources said, but turned to Matthews after a meeting with him on Friday.

    Wes "freakin" Matthews ..........are you kidding me. The kid had a nice rookie year but where in the hell is he going to play. Babbitt and Matthews play the same position and did Portland forget about Nic Batum as the starter. Matthews put up decent numbers but he played alot of minutes. Why in the hell would you give him that big of a contract after one year. Portland has really went to far by signing this kid to that big of a contract and there is no way Utah matches this pricetag......LOOKS LIKE WE ARE STUCK WITH HIM!

    Babbitt is a 3/4 hybrid while Matthews is mainly a 2. Do not give into knee jerk reactions. The roster is FAR from complete. He would just be one more piece to the summer puzzle.

    More from TribJazz-

     It says something that other agents are calling Jazz, describing Matthews offer as absurd and offering their clients as alternate options.

    It's obviously something they have to talk about with Greg Miller, but I think the Jazz's instant reaction is not to match on Matthews.
    The Jazz could go from 2nd round to Lotto in one off-season. Deron can't be happy about this.

    Another tidbit to take into consideration. While they have the ability to match, because he was an undrafted free agent, if they do match, it takes up their entire mid-level exception, meaning they can't go out and sign anyone else this summer. Also, they must find a way to pay Wes 9.2 million within the first two weeks of matching the offer if they choose to do. Maybe if Utah would just sign their RFA's instead of letting them shop around, they wouldn't be getting owned with these offers. We just delivered a pretty big blow to the Utah Jazz!

    This is ridiculous. This team is just turning their back on us on purpose. Wesley Matthews for $7 million a year? Are you kidding me? This kid was only on the court because of all of the injuries for the Jazz last year. Remember they even kept Sundiatta Gaines because they didn't think this kid would work out.

    Once again the Blazers are clueless. No lets not go after Kyle Korver or JJ Reddick, 2 proven shooters in this league (which according to Nate is what we were trying to get this offseason). Let's sign a guy who wasn't even drafted last year. LAST YEAR PEOPLE!!! It's not like he's had 5 years over seas to right the wrongs in his game. How much can you change in 1 year? This is just a joke.

    Absolutely zero respect for this deal. Its obviously meant to make Utah match (2nd coming of Paul Millsap toxic offer last year), except toxic offers can be for both teams. And in this case I think Portland just poisoned themselves. Have fun in mediocrity Portland. While Miami and Chicago are out going after legitimate free agents, Portland is busy trying to sign Wesley Matthews to the max deal he's allowed to take. Awful offseason, AWFUL!!!!

There's still a long time before the season starts and I just know we aren't done with free agents and trades just yet. Wait until it's one week before the season opener and we have a set roster before freaking out, thanks.

    I know, the season doesn't start until the end of October. Everyone should relax because we're not done. They're probably going to try to trade Rudy so Matthews can back up Roy. I know the contract's a bit much for Matthews, but if you trade Fernandez  and/or Pryzbilla, you can get another good player on this Blazers team.

    No way to Gilbert Arenas! Matthews is a bad idea not to mention that contract is overpriced for his caliber. How can this team win a championship with so many changes all the time? Yes we need to improve but why not help improve the players we already have? The Blazers seriously need to give Bayless some more playing time that kid is good and he's been improving its really disapointing that he hasn't been able to live up to his potential give him a freaking chance! The Blazers are lucky to have him, him and Webster are the only players who actually showed heart and tried in the playoffs! If they have to trade Rudy! These players there considering are a step down to the players we have! Like Farmar, are you kidding me? Why is he even in the NBA?

Our young players will get plenty of playing time. no worries there... & if anything this will create competition & the only thing that comes out of that is "greatness"

    My guess is Matthews, if the Jazz don't match, plays alongside Brandon Roy quite a bit, especially late in games. As John Hollinger pointed out on twitter ...

     Blazers with Matthews, Batum, Oden and Camby will be about 10,000 times better defensively than at midpoint of last season.
    As for Gilbert Arenas, that's crazy talk.

    Vegas is nice.

    More from David Aldridge-

    The basic issue for Utah, which has already lost Carlos Boozer and Kyle Korver in free agency, is if it wants to use its mid-level exception, in essence, on Matthews, who became one of Coach Jerry Sloan's favorites last season as a hardnosed defender. The undrafted guard took over as the starter at shooting guard after Utah traded Ronnie Brewer to Memphis last February, and the Jazz was hoping to re-sign him at a price well below the $5.8 million mid-level exception price.

    But Portland, which seemingly has a logjam at the wing positions with Brandon Roy, Nicolas Batum and Jerryd Bayless splitting minutes at the two and three, came after Matthews, just as the Blazers signed forward Paul Millsap to an offer sheet last July. Utah matched, knowing that it would be unlikely to keep Boozer past last season. Boozer signed a five-year, $80 million deal with the Bulls last week.

    The Blazers frontloaded the contract as allowed under league rules, adding a $3.4 million signing bonus that has to be paid as well as the $5.8 million in salary, for a total hit of $9.2 million in the first year. It was not known if that amount had to be paid within a week of the Jazz matching the offer, a common practice that the signing team puts into a contract to make it difficult for the incumbent team to match.

    A factor in Utah's favor is that by losing both Boozer and Korver, the Jazz should not be a luxury tax payer next season even if it matches the sheet on Matthews. The team's ownership, the family of the late Larry Miller, has okayed paying tax this coming season within reason just as it did last year.

    But Utah had hoped to use the mid-level on a big man this summer, knowing that it would probably have to replace Boozer and with starting center Mehmet Okur unlikely to be ready for the start of next season following an achilles' injury. Matching the sheet on Matthews would remove that option.

    With Utah not being able to have their MLE if they match is making me think they will pass on this and try to get two players out of their MLE.

    I voted indifferent, I like him as a player, gives us another really solid defender, the contract is whatever...where is Wes going to fit in the rotation? does he take DC's minutes? Rudy? Babbitt? 

    If Utah doesen't match and we sign him, are we looking to send someone away?..

    I want to see what Utah does before I have a decision. I like the defense, but very similar player to Williams ,imo.
     Im still waiting for Quick to tell us where he had lunch for my final vote ;)

    I like it. This is either a trade chip move, or someone who can immediately come in and contribute. This guy was one of the guys I liked and was pleasantly surprised at what he did over the course of last season.

    More from the DesertNews-

    For the record, the NBA recently set its mid-level exception at $5.765 million, so the Jazz would have to use all of that on Matthews. Should the Jazz match the offer, their payroll would be at about $66 million for only nine players. NBA teams are required to carry at least 13 on the roster, and the luxury-tax level will be $70.307 million for 2010-11.
    The agent even said Portland told him, "We may have overpaid, but if we're going to take a run we'll give our best shot."
    "He fills a need," Miller said. "He plays hard, is a good defender and is a decent shooter. But mostly, he's a hard-nosed defender, and that's a need for us."

    Did you bother to look at their stats? They averaged almost the same amount of minutes, with Batum averaging more points (10.1 to 9.4) and rebounds (3.8 to to 2.3). They averaged almost the exact same in assists per game. Batum shot a better percentage from 3, from the field, from the free throw line. Not to mention that Batum is 2 years younger and 3 inches taller. So unless you meant to type "Matthews can't put up numbers like him", you're entirely wrong. Just saying.

    It seems to be a win-win either way, with this thing being front loaded we could have some cap room to play with after next year with expiring contracts. If they match, then as Sloan put it they have someone (in millsap) to cover boozer's numbers, but they won't be able to sign anyone to replace millsap's numbers off the bench. I like our second unit's big men going against fesenko and koufus.

    P.S. Would anybody happen to have a...

    Hawes will be a hot commodity by the trade deadline, I would think the sixers could find a better offer.

    However, I do believe Mo Williams could have somewhat of  a high trade value. Olshey needs to make a deal to get a big man while we...
