Pacers to match Hibbert's Portland offer
A source confirms to Eyewitness Sports that the Pacers will match Portland's contract offer to Roy Hibbert. That will keep Hibbert in a Pacers uniform.
The Trailblazers reportedly offered Hibbert a four-year, $58 million contract at the beginning of free agency.
Hibbert is in Portland Monday taking physicals. He was prepared to sign the Trailblazers' offer sheet at 9:00 pm PT Tuesday night.
Hibbert is restricted, so the Pacers had to match Portland's offer to keep him. Wednesday, July 11th is the first day free agents can sign contracts.
