Portland Trail Blazers guard Wesley Matthews has notified the team that he will be available to represent the team May 30 at the NBA Draft Lottery, according to Trail Blazers acting general manager Chad Buchanan.

The Trail Blazers gave Matthews until this weekend to decide if he could fit it into his schedule and if not, Buchanan said he would have likely been the next option.

Matthews finished up his third NBA season and second as a Trail Blazer averaging 13.7 points, 3.4 rebounds, and 1.7 assists a game.
