Default Blazers sign Wesley Matthews to offer sheet

They've overpaid for him...

The Portland Trail Blazers announced today they have signed restricted free-agent guard Wesley Matthews to an offer sheet. Per team policy, financial details were not disclosed.

The Utah Jazz will have seven days to match the offer sheet from the day on which they receive it.

Solid player. Probably over paid him though.

Luckily the contract is front loaded, so that in the future his contract will be easier to trade compared to if we gave him the same amount of money on a traditional contract.

And here are some of his highlights from last season:

Nice mix. He's a better finisher than I thought.

So does this mean the end for Rudy Fernandez as a Blazer??? Anyone have an idea of who would want him in a trade or what we might be able to get for him???

I never saw him play... what kind of player is he? You can compare him to who?

I was kind of dissapointed we spent so much money on him, but he actually sounds like a very postive, level headed player. Glad he's here.

Yeah, and humble too. I loved the way he addressed the "overpaid" issue.

Just heard his interview on The Fan.. very well spoken, and like you said, humble.

Hopefully some of his attitude rubs off on Aldridge and the rookies.

Yeh reckon he will be a good back up at SF, with he and Batum we'll have the best defensive SF position in the game.

Take down Lebron, Kobe, Wade and the rest of the bogans.

I went to the Fanfest today and it was the first time getting to see Wesley play (well, first time paying attention to him when he played, I paid no attention to him when he was on the Jazz). I was really impressed with the skills he demonstrated, especially his D. He was named MVP of the scrimmage, but it was close between him and Bayless (and Roy who was on the losing team).

yep he's a nice defender.
I like a lot our team in terms of defence, guys like Batum, Matthews, Camby, Pryz, Oden and also Miller or Johnson .. this could be a terrific team at the defensive end.

lol, mentioning Miller shows how deprived we have been for defense from the PG position. He is an upgrade over Blake defensively, but he doesn't play great D. I think he plays average defense for a PG, we just haven't had an average defender at the point in years.

Yep, that's why i "second level" him lol
Although i think Armon Johnson could be good if he get some minutes, i hope for a Bayless breakout season too.
