SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - The Utah Jazz are going to hang on to forward Paul Millsap.
The Jazz posted on their Web site Thursday evening that they plan to match Portland's offer to Millsap, a restricted free agent. A formal announcement was scheduled for Friday, the last day Utah can match the $32 million deal that includes $10.3 million up front.
Millsap averaged 13.5 points and 8.6 rebounds last season, playing mostly as a reserve. He stepped in when starter Carlos Boozer missed 41 games with a knee injury and had a string of 19 straight double-doubles.
