Contract Details for Matisse Thybulle’s Re-Signing

Wojnarowski revealed on Thursday that the deal includes an $11.5 million player option for the third year.

Haynes added that the agreement incorporates a 15% trade kicker, and “50% of [Thybulle’s] annual salary must be paid by Oct. 1.”

Since extending a qualifying offer to Matisse Thybulle on June 28, the Blazers possessed the right to match any offer he received from another team during free agency.

Despite having 24 hours to make a decision once Thybulle signed the offer sheet, the Blazers swiftly chose to match it, reportedly reaching the verdict “within an hour,” as mentioned by Wojnarowski.

As a two-time all-NBA defender, the 26-year-old wing brings valuable experience on both ends of the court, serving as a veteran presence for the Blazers’ young core during the transition away from the Damian Lillard era.

Standing at 6-foot-5, Matisse Thybulle contributed 7.4 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 1.7 steals in 27.7 minutes per game for Portland last season.

He exhibited strong shooting from beyond the arc, making 38.8% of his 3.9 attempts per game. Throughout his career, he has maintained a 33.4% success rate from three-point range.
