Indiana Pacers guard George Hill and center Roy Hibbert will have to wait until the summer to get their next contracts and find out where they’ll be playing next season.
The deadline for contract extensions passed Wednesday night with neither player agreeing to a new deal.
They will be restricted free agents, meaning the Pacers can match any offer made to them, this summer.
“We’ll just wait until this summer and see what we can do,” Pacers President Larry Bird said.
It’s not surprising that Hibbert didn’t agree to an extension. He and agent David Falk said last week that they would prefer to wait until this summer to work on a new contract.
Hill’s status, on the other hand, is somewhat surprising.
