How Does Wesley Matthews Fit with the Blazers?

Wesley Matthews Blazers

With the Utah Jazz signing veteran shooting guard Raja Bell to a three-year deal on Wednesday, it appears as if Wesley Matthews’ short tenure in Salt Lake City has come to an end.  The former Marquette standout signed a 5-year, $33.4 million offer sheet with Portland this past weekend and according to multiple reports, the Jazz will not match the contract making Matthews the newest member of the Blazers.  While I am thrilled that the Madison native earned a big-time payday, I am not sure how he is going to fit with his new team.
