You know, barring any trades.

David Locke and Ross Siler are reporting on Twitter that Matthews has had his contract picked up:

Locke: Congrats to #utahjazz Wesley Matthews for getting his contract guaranteed . A complete class act that has been a pleasure to get to know.

Siler: Wesley Matthews' contract has been guaranteed for the rest of the season.

This is a no-brainer move.  Not only has Matthews been our best defender, he's a very cheap option for the salary-conscious Jazz.  I couldn't see any reason why the Jazz wouldn't do this.

He should be in good shape for this upcoming off-season as far as getting another guaranteed contract.

And finally some good news from the Jazz.
