Did Blazers make the best trade and free agent signing of any team this season?

Signing Matthews to a Mid-Level exception was an exceptional moved that many experts thought was paying too high. However the Blazers knew who they were getting. After a few months of playing ball Wesley Matthews has proven these experts wrong as many  experts now admit that it was an amazing signing. Matthews is scoring an average of 16 points a game. Looking at other players who are the same position (SG) and have similar stats are gettin paid at least 9 million dollars. Jason Terry and Jason Richardson have similar stats yet both are get paid millions more than Matthews.  In my opinion it looks like the Blazers got the best signing of the year for the money. 

 

Trading Joel Przybilla, Dante Cunningham, Sean Marks, and couple 1st round picks is really one of the best trades, if not the best one of any team this season. 

Looking at other trades teams had to give alot of talent to get an all-star. 

New Jersey for example, gave up Devin Harris (a former all-star) and Derrick Favors (a rookie with ALOT of potential to be a future star)

Knicks gave up half of their starting lineup (Gallinari, Felton, Wilson Chandler) to get Billups and Melo

What did the Blazers give away to get a former all-star and all Defensive Player? Only bench players who didn't even average over 30 minutes a game between all of them. We didn't have to give up any future cornerstones like New York had to, and we didn't have to give away any promising young guys or starters (like batum or Oden). 

 

What do you think? How do these moves rank with other teams?
