Wes Matthews Will Look Overseas
Matthews’ agent, Lance Young, has been calling around to international teams to gauge their interest in Matthews. If the lockout stretches much longer, Young said he is determined to land Matthews a deal to play overseas this season.
“He has been itching to do something since August,” Young said. “If it gets to the point where we feel like it’s going to be a lost season, he’s definitely going to play somewhere.”
Young has not reached the negotiating point with any particular team regarding Matthews, but he has spread the word that his client — and other clients with the sports agency Octagon — are looking. Young acknowledges that Matthews is not a top-tier draw such as All-Stars Kevin Durant, who is reportedly weighing offers from multiple teams, or Deron Williams, who is playing for Besiktas Milangaz in Turkey.
