Roy Hibbert Was Offered a Max Contract by the Trail Blazers

The start of NBA free agency began at 12:01 a.m. Sunday and the Portland Trail Blazers wasted no time in offering restricted free agent center Roy Hibbert a maximum contract of four years and $58 million.

Now Portland’s offer is just an offer sheet since Hibbert is restricted, so the Pacers will have a three-day window to match the deal once the free-agent moratorium is lifted on July 11. Does Indiana have much of a choice here? He’s only 25-years-old, has steadily improved, and plays the nearly extinct position of center.

According to Sam Amick at SI, a mystery team has also gotten involved and offered Hibbert a max deal. Yes, it certainly is nice to be a capable 7’2 center.
