Indiana did not offer a max deal, and Hibbert is now leaning to Blazers unless Pacers match. One other unnamed team offered max.

Re: REPORT: Two teams offer Roy Hibbert the max

Could be the Hornets. They have plenty of cap space and it would make a good deal of sense for them.

I can't see the Pacers not matching whatever offer he gets. This is your franchise player. Do both him and yourselves a favor, Pacers, and get him back.

RFA, what is the max amount for Hibbert's experience level?

I believe that Hibberts max deal would start out at 12 something and go up to 15. I am not sure how the rules on service time have changed in the CBA.

Knew this would happen. I'm not worried. He'll get his max from us and I'll be happy.

He wants to stay, we want him to stay, there's no issue.

You knew Hibbert would get the max, simply because he actually is a big that plays hard and competes and has skills. And he's still only mid 20's.

My thoughts exactly. We don't necessarily need Hibbert now that we have Plummy, but he'll help I guess.

I'm not even slightly worried.
Nope.

There's guys like Dwight Howard, and then there's class acts like Roy Hibbert.



Although there's also a little difference on the talent end there as well, but whatever.

He's one all star appearance from being worth 30% of the cap. Sucks for him. Instead he's getting 25%. That's a roughly 15 mill per year contract.
