Last week, the Portland Trailblazers caught everyone off guard when they made Pacers restricted free agent Roy Hibbert a max contract offer sheet. For several days, the Pacers let everyone around the league wonder if they were going to match that offer sheet. That suspense ended Monday when word came out of Indianapolis that the Pacers will offer Hibbert a contract similar to Portland's (H/T to the Indy Star's Mike Wells).
The Pacers are trying to build on earning the fifth-best record in the league last season and advancing to the second round of the playoffs.
"To keep things rolling, you need to get everybody back so it’s the way it was before," Pacers point guard George Hill said last week.
The 7'2" center made his first All-Star team last year and has shown improvement all four years he's been in the league. He's also one of the few back to the baskets centers left in the league. Teams with quick front lines do give the former Georg...

ESPN.com has reported that the Indiana Pacers will match the Portland Trailblazers’ offer to Roy Hibbert.

The Pacers will look [...]
The Pacers will match the four-year, $58 million offer sheet Roy Hibbert agreed to with the Blazers.
This smelly offseason just took another turn for the Indiana Pacers and I am not sure what to make of it yet.First of all, Roy Hibbert is remaining a Pacer. That takes care of the biggest question mark this offseason for the Pacers. The Pacers decided to match (as I thought they would all along) and Portland dropped out completely. Roy will be Indiana's franchise center for the...
This just in: Roy Hibbert isn’t coming to Portland. This also just in: The sky isn’t falling.
As I write this, it’s apparent that the coveted free agent (restricted as he may be) center the Portland Trail Blazers targeted will not be a Blazer. The restricted free agent (Nicolas Batum) they currently hold the rights to allegedly wants out. And former team president...
