NBA Free Agent Wesley Matthews Agrees To Portland Offer

May 15, 2015 by · 1 Comment 

Wesley Matthews has reportedly agreed to an offer sheet from the Portland Trailblazers, a 5-year contract worth $34 million. As a restricted free agent, his former team the Utah Jazz have one week to match the Portland offer. Combining salary and bonuses, Matthews is supposed to make more than $9 million in his first year. To date, free agents Kyle Korver agreed to a 3-year, $15 million offer while Carlos Boozer agreed to a 5-year, $80 million offer from the Chicago Bulls. For Wesley Matthews, this offer will give him a huge payday.

Matthews was an undrafted rookie last season but he stands to earn more than last year’s number one rookie draft pick, Blake Griffin, next season. There are no guarantees that Utah Jazz will match the offer like they did with Paul Millsap when Portland extended a similar offer.

Matthews is a big guard who can shoot from the outside and play tough defense on any given night. There are overpaid players in the league for sure but Matthews could be worth the money for either the Jazz or Blazers. He would be a bargain if he only gets to make $5 million in his second year.
