Matthews was averaging 16.1 points, 2.3 assists, and 3.7 rebounds per game in 59 games this season with the Blazers. This was a contract year for Matthews. Arron Affalo is expected to take Matthews’ spot in the Blazers lineup. Affalo was acquired by the team a couple of weeks ago at the NBA’s trading deadline.
