My original thought was - WHO? But after looking at what he's done in the playoffs for the Jazz, that's a solid pickup. Unfortunetly, it will be Webster 2.0 in the sense that he will not get much playing time behind Roy and Batum.

For Utah, he'd start and become a very good player. He passed 3 year starter Ronnie Brewer in less than a season.

For Portland, he becomes an overpaid sub. I don't see the rationale for Portland.

that is awful. 34 million for Matthews? What has the NBA come to. He has potential but c'mon people!

The contracts this offseason have sucked!

Are the Jazz going to match that. If they do the blazers would of done a fantastic job of tying Jazz hands for years with overpriced players. I dont really think Millsap was overpriced I love his game

Great sign by the Blazers. I don't see the Jazz letting him walk away. Just makes them pay more to keep their own players. Cracks me up. JAZZ SUCK!

Jazz have notified Wesley Matthews reps they won't match offer and will sign other guard.http://twitter.com/tribjazz/status/18564961777 Twitter of the Salt Lake Tribune

Millsap was worth the contract that the Blazers offered, Matthews isn't. I'm not sure why the Trailblazers have it in for Utah.
