While most of the NBA focuses on the fate of Portland Trail Blazers forward LaMarcus Aldridge, the Toronto Raptors are making a play for another Blazers free agent, shooting guard Wesley Matthews.

USAToday's Jeff Zillgitt reports that Wesley Matthews and the Toronto Raptors will meet to discuss options.

Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today has reported that the Toronto Raptors are trying to convince Wesley Matthews to accept a deal worth less than his desired $15 million per year.

USA Today's Sam Amick has reported that guard DeMar DeRozan has had a heavy influence in the signing of guard DeMarre Carroll and the pursuit of guard Wesley Matthews.

Matthews is reportedly seeking $15 million per year in free agency. He has played in the NBA 6 seasons, 5 with the Trail Blazers, with a career average of 14.3 ppg off of 44.3% shooting from the field, 39.3% from the three-point arc.
