Hibbert reaches verbal agreement with Portland
The Indiana Pacers says they will do anything to keep Roy Hibbert, but can they match a maximum contract offer from the Portland Trailblazers?
The Pacers big man has at least one serious suitor as free agency begins. The Portland TrailBlazers met with Hibbert at his Washington, D.C. home Sunday and according to several reports they came to a verbal agreement on a maximum contract, four years at $58 million.
The Pacers also met with Hibbert but they did not offer him max money.
Reports are that Hibbert is leaning towards signing an offer sheet from Portland, which would give the Pacers three days to match that money. If they match Hibbert would stay. If they don't Roy is gone.
