Quick: Wesley Matthews "Felt Disrespected" By Portland Trail Blazers In Free Agency

Wesley Matthews expressed his displeasure with how he left Portland in a new Oregonian piece. In the third installment of the Wesley Matthews "Rebuilding Of Iron Man" injury-recovery series by Jason Quick of The Oregonian/OregonLive, Matthews had less-than-flattering words about the Portland Trail Blazers front office, and their treatment of him in the offseason. He had hoped he could return to the city that had embraced him, to the team with players he considered brothers, to the franchise where he grew into one of the NBA's most well-rounded and respected shooting guards. But in the...

Wesley Matthews Pens Eloquent Goodbye to Portland

Iron Man bids his fans farewell. Wesley Matthews, former Portland Trail Blazers shooting guard, has penned a fond farewell to his Portland fans in The Players Tribune. It begins... The plane was landing and I was staring out the window. I remember all I could think about was how green this place was and how many trees there were. Obviously I had visited Portland previously, while I was playing for Utah, but there was a different feel this time. So many thoughts were racing through my head. Where will I live? Will my teammates like me? Will the city like me? As it turned out, Matthews had...

Wesley Matthews will still sign with the Mavericks Thursday, per report

Well, at least somebody still wants to sign with the Mavs. DeAndre Jordan's sudden change of heart has thrown the Mavericks team building plans into complete chaos. Wesley Matthews, Chandler Parsons and DeAndre Jordan were set to be the Mavs' proverbial Big 3. Although the DeAndre dream is slowly evaporating, Matthews remains committed to signing his four-year deal with the Mavericks. If Jordan does indeed re-sign with the Clippers, the Matthews signing could present itself more as a problem then a solution. Without Jordan, the Mavs will need to tank to keep the first round pick they sent...

Why a Sign and Trade Wasn't an Option for the Portland Trail Blazers

Blazers fans have asked the question. We answer. Over the last two weeks the Portland Trail Blazers have lost four of their five starters from last season via free agency or trade. Particularly frustrating for Blazers' fans is the fact that General Manager Neil Olshey managed to acquire exactly two players for those four former starters: Gerald Henderson and Noah Vonleh. Many fans have been left wondering if there was any way Olshey could have parlayed his former starters into more tangible assets. Specifically, why didn't Olshey attempt a sign and trade involving Wesley Matthews, Robin...

Blazers Edge talks Wesley Matthews' potential impact in Dallas

Dave Deckard of SB Nation's Trail Blazers blog helps us with questions about Wes Matthews' offensive repertoire, his locker room presence and that achilles injury. Matthews is talked about quite a bit for his shooting abilities. Over the last two seasons, nobody has made more except Steph Curry and Klay Thompson. But a lot of fans might not appreciate the other parts of the game his shooting helps set up. Can you describe what he's able to do in the post, as a ballhandler, and on the defensive end that will make an impact? In the Post: Matthews has developed this part of his game over the...
