Ford: 51% Chance That Pacers Match Blazers Offer To Roy Hibbert

Chad Ford of ESPN.com writes in a chat that the Indiana Pacers are not sure whether or not to match a 4-year, $58 million maximum offer sheet reportedly made by the Portland Trail Blazers to restricted free agent center Roy Hibbert. ------------------------------ 51%. They are really on the fence. If they can find a replacement that they are comfortable with for cheaper, they may let him go. Chris Kaman is coming in today into Indy. Personally I feel that's a pretty big downgrade, but Larry Bird has been a huge fan of Kaman's. ------------------------------ Olshey and Blazers president Larry Miller made Hibbert their first stop of the 2012 Free Agency period. Hibbert was reportedly "blown away" by Olshey and company. Hibbert, 25, just completed his fourth season with the Indiana Pacers, posting career-high averages of 12.8 points, 8.8 rebounds and 2.0 blocks per game. He played in 65 of Indiana's 66 games last season. Hibbert, listed at 7-foot-2 and 278 pounds, is generally regarded as a top-5 free agent in this year's class and the best available center. Got my wires crossed on Monday morning. Thanks to Makaden who got there first in the FanShots.
