Guess Portland's "toxic" offer to Paul Millsap wasn't toxic enough.
the terms of the contract, the Jazz, which stated all summer that it
would match any offer Millsap received, will have to pay the
24-year-old forward $10.3 million this weekend. Portland had
front-loaded the contract to discourage Utah from matching.
A formal announcement was scheduled for Friday, the last day Utah can match the Portland offer.
This could be good because it might mean the Trailblazers go for Lamar Odom. I don't get why they wouldn't lure a key piece away from a team above them in the standings. I'm not alone in thinking that losing Odom and Trevor Ariza is too much subtraction… and it more than offsets the addition of Ron Artest.
