I should be a GM. Told my brother this morning that Calderon would be good fit for Cats. I later heard Chandler maybe on way out for Calderon and I told him Charlotte would be my 2nd favorite team in east behind Bucks if they find way to scoop Al Jeff
According to Tim Buckley of the Deseret News, the Utah Jazz have traded for Minnesota's Al Jefferson and his $13 million contract ($42 million over the next three years), likely using a trade exception and a draft pick. Blazers and Jazz fans can factor in this info when speculating whether they're likely to match Portland's 5-year, $34 million offer on guard Wesley Matthews.
