Blazers Offer Paul Millsap 4 Year Deal - Hinrich Deal Dead?

For now, it looks like the deal for Kirk Hinrich is dead but the Blazers have gone another direction in offering Paul Millsap a 4 year deal.  Chris Broussard is on it:
The Portland Trail Blazers have offered Utah Jazz free agent Paul Millsap a four-year contract worth between $32 million and $36 million, according to league sources.

The offer includes a hefty signing bonus that will make it difficult for Utah to match. The Jazz will be presented with the offer Saturday and have seven days to match because Millsap is a restricted free agent.
I think we can speculate a little that the Blazers are expecting the Jazz to match this front loaded offer which will then pressure them into trading Carlos Boozer which could eventually land the Blazers Hinrich whom many feel has been the target all along.

The Utah Jazz have a week to match the offer.

Your thoughts?

Wonderful post! These are some good tips, but there’s better ones out there. I would definitely research it, Keno is by far the best game ever.

About This Blog

This Portland Trail Blazers blog definitely isn't your basic "recap/report the news" kind of blog. We tend to lean a little to the sporadic and unsystematic side of this young and sexy basketball team. Oh, and you'll definitely see a lot of Blazer Dancer action around here, so bring your bucket of ice.
